Michal Menert is very pleased to announce that his new single “All You Get” can now be heard everywhere. “’All You Get’ is an affirmation to take life (with a grain of salt) and make it yours” says Menert. “A mantra for a disillusioned world waiting for someone else to save it, a comforting reminder that much of what we prioritize isn't as valuable as love & purpose.”

“This is one the most thrilling albums the Grateful Dead ever produced, mixing portions of live recordings from the first six months of Mickey's tenure with the band, along with studio experimentations that would hint at where the Dead would go when they started recording to 16-track tape the following year. The 1971 remix, produced in order to make the album more accessible to the newer fans who were brought on board with WORKINGMAN'S DEAD and AMERICAN BEAUTY, has been the most commonly heard version for the past 45+ years.
