"Your Mind Has Left Your Body"

"Your Mind Has Left Your Body" is a song that is said to have come out of the January 1971 sessions at Wally Heider's studio in San Francisco, CA. Musicians such as Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Jack Cassady & Jorma of Jefferson Airplane and Phil Lesh, Billy Kreutzman, Mickey Hart and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and David Freiberg of QuickSilver Messenger Service come together with David Crosby & Graham Nash of CSN&Y to play some fine music. Please join me this week on Shakedown Stream™ to hear the Planet Earth Rock n Roll Orchrestra (PERRO) session from Jan. 1971. We'll hear the earliest versions of Garcia's "Loser" and most notably "Mountain Song" which was later brought back to life by Phil Lesh with Further. Check out this week's Stream @ CLICK HERE

Blizzard Delay

This week's Shakedown Stream will by delayed due to the Blizzard on Martha's Vineyard. No worries though. We are continuing to make the connections between the Grateful Dead and Jefferson Airplane in honor of Paul Kantner. In addition, we'll hear Kantner's original version of "Your Mind Has Left Your Body" with Jerry Garcia and friends. Then we'll check out some of the Dead's first live performances of Mind Left Body starting with 1972 and furthur into 1973. 

Check out last week's episode where we enjoyed Ground Hog Day with some of Kantner's songs with the Airplane and his solo stuff with Grace Slick and Jerry Garcia & the Boys on EPISODE #417.
