The debris from the cosmic big bang of the Grateful Dead continues to bounce around the stratosphere. As luck would have it, someone pressed the red "record" button and the Dead's jams have been captured. This week on Shakedown Stream we celebrate another show that possesses a Dark Star > St Stephen > The Eleven > Death Have No Mercy.
Many of us grew up listening to this song arrangement on the "Live Dead" album - over and over again. Gone are the days where you have to worry about turning the album over to listen to the other side and the rest of the jam - the Stream keeps the songs flowing.

Dear fellow citizens, please make sure that you have all of the necessary supplies for this 4th of July holiday. For example, this Dancing Bear ice cube tray is something no deadhead wants to be without on this special holiday. The Dancing Bears ice cubes are an excellent way to keep your homemade lemonade or even that special mystery concoction that Aunt Mary brings every year nice and cool. If you look at right, you may even see the bears dancing and singing your favorite Grateful Dead song.

The theme for this month is psychedelic in nature (this may seem redundant when speaking of 60s Dead). Shakedown Stream is featuring Grateful Dead shows that have the Dark Star>St Stephen>The Eleven>Death Have No Mercy set lists. Such a standard arrangement of songs is not only worthy of our attention from a historical point of view, but, just as importantly, these jams are superb representations of acid rock n' roll.
As deadheads, we need to always to remind ourselves of how the music started and its' evolution so "...with a rose in and out of the garden we go."
