Grateful Dead - Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses) 2LP
Originally released in 1971, the eponymous "Grateful Dead" - unofficially known as "Skull and Roses" after the iconic cover art - was essentially a live set with studio tinkering. The Dead at this point were at the height of their creative powers and it's from this point on that their legacy grew to mammoth proportions.
This remaster transports the listener back to the Dead’s residency at The Fillmore East, New York and, as with the first release, features three tracks previously unreleased on the studio album: Bertha, Playing in the Band and Wharf Rat.
50th anniversary edition.
