Dead Beatles

In honor of the Beatles 50th anniversary of their TV appearance on the Ed Sullivan show, last week's episode of Shakedown Stream™ featured the Grateful Dead playing Beatles. We started with a version of "Hey Jude" sung by Pig Pen from 1969, the Jerry Garcia Band doing "I Saw Her Standing There," Bob Weir & RatDog's jamming an acoustic "Blackbird," and a rare instrumental Jerry version of "Mother Nature's Son." 

The featured Dead show last week was from Burlytown, Vermont - April 1983. Join us on next week as continue to tour the 50 states around the USA. We are going to South Carolina - Halloween 1985.
