1974 Dead

One of my favorite years of the Grateful Dead is and has always been 1974. Lately, many Streamers have asked for a return to the good old days of the Dead - the stuff that makes them great. This month Shakedown Stream will randomly move around the various '74 shows and feature them. 1974 is famous for the "Phil & Ned" feedback jams between sets, some of the nicest ChinaCat>Riders ever performed, Weather Report Suites, Spanish jam and, more importantly, "The Wall of Sound". Find out for yourself why this is such a great year.

Join me this week and every week for the entire month of May for each featured show on Shakedown Stream -
