The Grateful Dead have released Workingman’s Dead: The Angel’s Share, a collection of candid studio outtakes from the recording of their seminal 1970 Americana album.

While the Dead are known for leaving few stones unturned in terms of live audio, studio remastering, and all of the other content that diehard fans obsess over, little has been released in the way of the Dead’s interpersonal communication within the studio. Sure, fans can find live mixes of classic concerts that feature the band members speaking to each other with in-ear monitors. But The Angel’s Share shows the band isolated together, during a time when they were still far greater friends than business partners.

During the mid-1970s, the Grateful Dead saga was unfolding like a Greek classic. The Sisyphean Wall Of Sound had nearly broken the band.

The chorus lay in wait, pondering the reemergence of their heroes, and wondering if “THE LAST ONE” had really been it…

By 1987, the Grateful Dead had lived many of their nine lives but were about to embark on one not a soul had seen coming. In The Dark, their first studio album in seven years, had spawned a hit (A TOP 10 SINGLE FOR THE GRATEFUL DEAD?!) and “Touch Of Grey” begat a new generation with their fanny packs and their MTV and their undeniable quest to join the party already in progress. And boy, did the Dead let them in! But not without fine-tuning their sonic vibes to meet the new demand.

Quite possibly the worst album by either Bob Dylan or the Grateful Dead, the live Dylan & the Dead completely squanders its promise. Working from an intriguing selection of songs it includes staples like “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” and more obscure gems like “Joey” the Dead and Dylan contribute listless, meandering versions that are simply boring. Both artists have done much better reportedly they have done better together, according to various bootleg fans but Dylan & the Dead is a sad, disheartening document.
