EDITORS’ NOTES

Shakedown Street's title track shows the Dead adapting shockingly well to the disco era, transforming their normal rhythmic interplay into a slick, grooving strut. The remainder of the album sees them tackling similarly funky sounds. The rough-edged blues of "I Need a Miracle" and the Caribbean-tinged "Fire On the Mountain" would become setlist staples, and their Latin-flavored version of The Rascals' '60s rock classic "Good Lovin'" is one of the band's most beloved covers.
