  • Favorite Grateful Dead Album

    Know we certainly don't lack for Deadheads here! What is everyone's favorite album or albums from Jerry and the band?!?!

    Me, I'm partial to the earlier Dead releases and most of all American Beauty that contains my all time favorite Dead tune "Sugar Magnolia." There's not another Dead song that sits in my head like "Sugar Magnolia!" But there's not a bad song on the album not to mention probably one of the band's most famous songs "Truckin'." Of course Europe '72, long gone from my record collection, has that unforgettable 13+ minute rendition of "Truckin'"!

    Probably my second favorite Dead release is Workingman's Dead with those unforgettable tunes "Casey Jones, Uncle John's Band and Cumberland Blues!"

    Good choices Myles. I'm partial to Terrapin Station as well.

      I listen to live boots mostly. Really can't pick a fav...but American Beauty is up there In addition to those already mentioned. I'm transferring a live DAT recorded from a 1991 concert at Nassau Coliseum 3/27 as we speak. 25 year old DAT master and still plays perfectly with no drops. I have about 300 DAT tapes I still need to transfer to files. Panasonic SV4100 DAT machine working like a champ still. Old school digital.

          I would xfer all them DATS ASAP before your DAT machine bites the dust.

            I have tried and tried, but I just cannot get into the Grateful Dead. My last attempt was buying the reissue of American Beauty and it still didn't grab me. For some strange reason I'm holding on to that copy as I'm kind of hoping that one day I will. Check back with me next year or so.
