Front and center in the Nike SB Dunk Low Grateful Dead is the band’s most lovable symbol, the dancing bears, which first appear on the back cover of the group’s 1973 LP "History of the Grateful Dead, Volume 1 (Bear’s Choice)." Set in three colorways, the shoe playfully features bear-inspired detailing, such as a faux-fur and suede upper, a frayed Nike Swoosh mimicking the bears’ collars and an image of the bear on the tongue. (Another iconic Grateful Dead logo, the Steal Your Face skull, is printed on the underside of the sockliner.)
Please don't dominate the rap, Jack
If you got nothing new to say
Rollingstone.com's got something new to say about the recording of "New Speedway Boogie," very specifically the demo with acoustic guitar, drums and vocals (not slated) and all the outtakes from THE ANGEL'S SHARE. Wander over yonder to hear what it's all about.
“Keep it nice and f***ing together, you f***ers.” - Jerry Garcia
We told you we had an ace in our pocket and we're calling this one THE ANGEL'S SHARE. No evaporation here though. While there may have been ingredients vital to the creation of WORKINGMAN’S DEAD that were lost and did not end up on the final album, they've come a-bubblin' up and we're more than pleased to pass the bottle around.
