Album of the Day
Workingman's Dead (50th Anniversary Edition)
While the first three Grateful Dead studio albums appealed to many, the Bay Area band didn’t yet have the mass breakthrough that would make the entire world take notice – but the June 1970 release of WORKINGMAN'S DEAD changed all that. With eight perfect songs (“Casey Jones” and “High Time” among them), the album solidified the Jerry Garcia-Robert Hunter songwriting tandem as one of the best songwriting collaborations in music history. The album reached the Top Thirty and included the single “Uncle John’s Band,” which climbed to #69 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Now available, the 3-CD WORKINGMAN’S DEAD: 50th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION includes the original album with newly remastered sound, plus an unreleased concert recorded on February 21, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY.
