Friday Night Grateful Dead, part 02: Shakedown Street

Definitely I would include this song to any Dead live albums. Nice funky rhythm with great Jerry's solos. Bob's rhythm guitar is fantastic and the rest of the band plays well. All in all, Dead's live performances outplayed the most of the studio songs. This is no exception. You just could listen and listen nevertheless how long this would go on. Jerry is playing his Wolf custom built guitar and Bob's playing his Ibanez custom guitar. Beautiful combination of these two guitars. This song was included on the LP Shakedown Street which was released in 1978 and first played live on 31 August 1978 at Morrison, Colorado.
