Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: The Grateful Dead Rated 1st!
The Grateful Dead is the debut album of the Grateful Dead. It was recorded by Warner Bros. Records, and was released in March 1967. The Grateful Dead band was formed in 1965 and is known for its unique and eclectic style fusing elements of rock, folk, bluegrass, blues, reggae, and country.
Between 1967 and 1970, the Grateful Dead recorded five studio albums for Warner
Bros. Records that formed the psychedelic canon on which the band’s live legend
was built. Those albums were pressed on premium 180g vinyl and packaged
as a Deluxe 5LP Box Set. This 180g LP is the same as the pressing that was
included in that set.
Reviews of the 5LP Box Set:
"... Each LP's cover has been meticulously reproduced, the 180-gram vinyl
pressed ... from freshly-cut lacquers mastered from the original analog tapes
by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Studios..." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute
Sound, January 2011, Issue 209
"...when it comes to focus, overall clarity, balance, dynamic punch, and
bottom-end weight, which are hallmarks of [these] Rhino's reissues. As to Phil
Lesh's marvelous and important bass playing - the clarity of line, and his
round, almost creamy tone - is one of the great joys of this new set. These new
LPs knock the others, including the CD box, right off my shelf." - Wayne
Garcia, The Absolute Sound, January 2011, Issue 209
