Consecration Day 20 & Grateful Dead & St. Stephen


St. Stephen, from Aoxomoxoa (1969). Tom Constanten (keyboards, production, arrangements), Jerry Garcia (guitar, vocals), Mickey Hart (drums, percussion), Bill Kreutzmann (drums, percussion), Phil Lesh (bass guitar, vocals), Ron “Pigpen” McKernan (keyboards, percussion),
