Jerry Right - Phil Left

Sometimes the smallest of changes can be huge. Take for example when Jerry Garcia and Phil Lesh changed sides on stage. For quite some time, Jerry was stage right (our left) and Phil was stage left (our right). yet, one one particular Sunday night in Davis, California in March of 1982, that changed - Jerry and Phil switched sides - HUGE. 

This stage arrangement remained this way until the very end in 1995. Deadheads pay very close attention to such details of the Grateful Dead. Join me this week as we feature the last show with Jerry on the left and Phil on the right.

Doubleheader of '82 Dead

It's a doubleheader on Shakedown Stream! This week's featured show displays the earliest versions of "Throwing Stones" and "Touch of Grey." These were new tunes for us deadheads at the time and we did not even know what they were called; "We Will Survive" or "Ashes to Ashes" - who knew, we are all so crazed with passion and trying to get tickets.

Join us as we feature two nights in Palo Alto, CA in 1982.
