Grateful Dead The Very Best of Grateful Dead on 180g 2LP
Mastered by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray
The Grateful Dead 180g Vinyl Series Continues on Friday Music!
In 2003, the good folks at Warner Bros. Records and Rhino Entertainment compiled an amazing compact disc overview of the Grateful Dead’s most memorable and fan driven favorites simply titled The Very Best Of Grateful Dead. This collection featured the brilliant and sorely missed vocals and guitar musings of Jerry Garcia, the rockin’ guitar and vocals of Bob Weir, the driving bass and vocals of Phil Lesh, the powerful drums of Bill Kreuztmann, Tom Constanten and Mickey Hart, the great Donna Jean Godchaux on vocals, plus the sorely missed keyboard wizardry of Ron McKernan, Keith Godchaux and Brent Mydland.
This mammoth 17-song collection has something for everybody as it culls tracks not only from the Warner vaults, but from the Grateful Dead label and Artista Records period of the band’s output. Therefore, a good majority of the hits and definitive Dead tracks are included on this career compendium of songs which will forever stand the test of time.
Their most familiar songs from Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty are featured with tracks like "Casey Jones," "Uncle John’s Band," "Truckin" and "Sugar Magnolia." Plus even more Grateful Dead anthems from their own Grateful Dead label are included like "The Music Never Stopped," "Eyes Of The World" and "U.S. Blues," most of which featured the memorable lyrics of Robert Hunter. The later Arista era is also highlighted with massive smash hits like "Touch of Grey" and more rockers like "Fire On The Mountain" and "Estimated Prophet."
Friday Music is honored once again to be the torchbearer for some of the finest music ever recorded as they present the 180g vinyl release of The Very Best Of Grateful Dead. The 2LP-set was mastered by Joe Reagoso and Kevin Gray and features all of the original 17-tracks as hand picked by Dead archivists James Austin and David Lemieux.
Friday Music is also including the original compact disc cover artwork in a gatefold format with a bevy of rare photos, as well as a complete LP vinyl full color discography. And as always, they include a protective vinyl sleeve for the fine album cover and poly-lined sleeves for each vinyl disc to help keep your musical investment in mint shape.
