Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: The Grateful Dead Rated 1st!
The iconic Grateful Dead recorded their brilliant From The Mars Hotel for their
own Grateful Dead Records label in 1974. Featuring the stellar line-up of Jerry
Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzman, Keith Godchaux and Donna Godchaux,
From The Mars Hotel was a very successful achievement for the much loved band,
whose legacy continues to grow and attract new legions of fans every day.
Filled with eight original compositions from Jerry Garcia and Robert Hunter, Bob
Weir and Phil Lesh, The Grateful Dead’s From The Mars Hotel offers a stunning
view of a very popular band’s experimentation and wizardry in the studio
setting. Produced by The Grateful Dead themselves, this masterpiece reached the
upper rungs of the album charts that year, as the band trekked across the globe
with their monumental concert tour which have made them the legends they are to
this day. The original vinyl album has been out of print for over the past three
decades, making this a highly collectable recording in their massive archives...
that is until now!!!
Now for the first time ever on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl, Friday Music is very
honored to announce the limited edition Grateful Dead authorized release of the
legendary From The Mars Hotel. Mastered for vinyl from the original Grateful
Dead Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray, this
wonderful album is truly a welcome addition to your Dead collection.
Brilliant tunes like the opening rocker U.S. Blues feature the warm and familiar
voice and guitar of the legendary Jerry Garcia as well as the lyrics of Robert
Hunter. Together this team offered several more gems like the stellar ballad
China Doll and of course the fan favorites Scarlet Begonias and the outstanding
Ship Of Fools.
The great Bob Weir delivers a very strong track with the funk rocker Money
Money, plus the multi-talented Phil Lesh contributes several more Dead rocking
classics like Pride Of Cucamonga and the haunting Unbroken Chain, making this
one of the more intriguing albums in their arsenal of fine recordings.
