The crown jewel of the Dead’s studio output! The album’s original 10 tracks include many of the Dead’s best-known, most-loved, and most popular songs both on record and in concert for the next 25 years. An album that includes Box Of Rain, Friend Of The Devil, Sugar Magnolia, Candyman, Ripple, Brokedown Palace, Attics Of My Life,and Truckin’ looks more like a greatest-hits compilation than a second album of 1970, and yet American Beauty demonstrates a band unable to slow down in terms of the quality of its writing, recording, and performing.

This three-CD set includes the original album with newly remastered audio, plus an unreleased concert recorded on February 18, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The show was mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Bob Weir’s Marin County TRI Studios and mastered by Grammy® Award-winning engineer, David Glasser.

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. From it spawned a Medusa head of countless side projects, all deliciously fruitful but woefully not the same as the whole. The chorus lay in wait, pondering the reemergence of their heroes, and wondering if “THE LAST ONE” had really been it…
