Album of the Day

Shakedown Street

The final Grateful Dead album of the 1970s, SHAKEDOWN STREET, paired the group with another acclaimed California rocker: Little Feat's Lowell George, who co-produced the Arista collection. This would also be the final Dead album to feature the Godchaux husband-and-wife team, and Donna Jean made the most of it, singing beautifully on “France” and her own “From the Heart of Me.” From the Garcia-Hunter title track (which flirted with disco) to such future concert staples as “Fire on the Mountain” and “I Need a Miracle,” these 10 songs cover plenty of stylistic ground. Released 40 years ago today, SHAKEDOWN STREET shows a great band still eager to shake things up.
