S212: Shakedown Street

Ever tried to scrape cocaine out of a shag carpet? We haven’t personally, but if we ever found ourselves making the attempt, there’s a decent chance Shakedown Street would be on the Hi-Fi. In this episode, the gang examines one of the least beloved long-players in the Grateful Dead’s catalog. How an album at least partially produced by the legendary Lowell George of Little Feat ended up one of the Dead’s least-beloved studio releases is an enduring enigma. We don’t attempt to solve it so much as explore the realities it represents. With plenty of opinions, obviously. We welcome yours: info@deadtomepod.com
