    Workingman's Dead

    Sublime, Stripped-Down 1970 Americana Classic Steeped in Country, Blues, and Folk


    You've Never Heard This Roots-Based Marvel Sound Better: Mastered from the Original Master Tapes and Given Extra-Wide Grooves on 45RPM LP


    Ranked #264 on Rolling Stone's List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time: Airy Harmonies, Simple Structures, Concise Arrangements, and Burnished Tones Anchor Songs


    Workingman's Dead defies the erroneous belief that the Grateful Dead never attained brilliance in the recording studio. Forever prized for natural sonics, Workingman's Dead attains audiophile reference status courtesy of this first-ever 45RPM version. As flawless as any rustic album ever released, the 1970 set now brims with soaring harmonies, organic execution, intertwined textures, and uncomplicated structures that furnish the songs a transcendence associated with timeless American music. Colorful, relatable characters seemingly torn from working-class histories and old-time fables inhabit the narratives.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LPs at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited edition of this period-defining recording renders the stripped-down fare with immense detail, rich airiness, and reach-out-and-touch-it realism. Longtime Deadheads and newcomers alike will hear significantly more information, experience wider and deeper soundstages, and become swept away by incredible tonal and vocal balances-traits made possible by the format's wider grooves. Instrumental melds and refined accents, such as guest David Nelson's nimble fills on "Cumberland Blues," are part of a larger whole that gives the impression you are witness to the world's coziest campfire session. Frontier tales and refined performances further this feeling.


    The first Grateful Dead album to eschew cosmic jams and complex signatures, Workingman's Dead stakes its existence to great songs, homespun warmth, and bare essentials. Its wistful, relaxed state-immediately apparent via the innocent album-opening invitation "Will you come with me?" on "Uncle John's Band"-owes to the circumstances and conditions surrounding its creation. At the time, the Dead owed a considerable financial debt to Warner Bros. and were hobbled by a recent drug bust and financial scandal. Most significantly, the band was recovering from-and reacting to-the tragic events of the Altamont Music Festival and symbolic end of the peace and love era.


    As such, Workingman's Dead acts as a retreat from chaos and uncertainty, its songs emblems of simpler times and pleas for compassion in the face of hardship. Lyricist Robert Hunter said he aimed to capture the vintage elements of late 1940s country-and-western jukebox singles as well as old blues classics. In that vein, fare such as the Bakersfield-leaning "Cumberland Blues," pastoral ballad "Dire Wolf," and bluesy "Easy Wind" hit the mark. Leader Jerry Garcia's occasional pedal-steel underpinnings arrive as a bonus.


    Of course, aside from the economical concision and thematic consistency, the genius of Workingman's Dead resides in the group's expressive harmonies. Taught by Crosby, Stills and Nash, the Dead produce live "air blends" of multi-part vocal harmonies that provide the foundations of nearly every track. "Uncle John's Band," "High Time," "New Speedway Boogie" (with the iconic refrain "One way or another/This darkness has got to give" referencing the ill wind that greeted the new decade), and the radio favorite "Casey Jones" practically float on the ensemble's communal vocal beds.


    Mobile Fidelity's 45RPM edition renders these invigorating, refreshing, and engaging characteristics in three-dimensional sound that transports you to the event. Recordings don't get more lifelike. Workingman's Dead-an iconic, ageless record that drew countless listeners to the band's unique style because of its accessibility and charm-deserves nothing less. Neither do you.

    One From The Vault


    Back In Print On Vinyl After 22 Years On 3xLP


    First Ever American LP Release


    Newly Re-Mastered By Joe Gastwirt


    Lacquers Cut By Kevin Gray


    For a legacy filled with legendary performances, the Grateful Dead Live at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco on August 13th 1975 stands out. The band only played 4 shows during that entire year! (Remarkable for a band that toured non-stop for decades) and at their August 13th show, they rolled multi-track tape (which allowed for the band decades later to properly mix the show).


    Because the Great American Music Hall holds less than 1,000 people (another unique thing about this show), it was an invitation only performance in which the band debuted their recent studio album Blues For Allah in a live setting.


    Although One From The Vault has been available on CD nearly continuously since 1991, the vinyl version was only available for less than a year (and in Europe only) in the early 1990's. This deluxe vinyl reissue marks the first time this legendary show has been available anywhere in over 20 years and the first time in America.


    Rolling Stone magazine has described One From The Vaultas:


    ''The closest the Dead came in the Seventies to the band's trippy, late-Sixties peak, and the performance indulged the group's jazzy, free-form impulses even further. ''Help on the Way,'' ''Franklin's Tower'' and ''The Music Never Stopped'' cohere into a twenty-minute song cycle. ''King Solomon's Marbles,'' a tumbling, polyrhythmic instrumental by bassist Phil Lesh, crackles with energy. Inventive percussion duets by Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann are appended to ''Eyes of the World,'' as well as to the pretty, elliptical ''Crazy Fingers.'' The crowning touch is ''Blues for Allah,'' which runs 21 minutes and explores inner space with a meditative intensity barely hinted at on the studio version.''

    Europe '72

    Nearly 40 years ago, the Grateful Dead released Europe '72, a triple live album documenting its historic trek across Europe that became not only one of the band's best-selling releases, but also set the gold standard for live Dead.


    The Grateful Deads first tour outside of North America took them to all sorts of historic and unusual venues in England, Denmark, West Germany, France, Holland and even Luxembourg. Many members of the Dead family came along on what was really an extended working vacation that was designed to both expose the Dead to new audiences and also reward the band for their unlikely conquest of America during the preceding two years. As a hedge against the costs of the nearly two-month trip, the Deads label, Warner Bros., paid for the band to lug around a 16-track recorder to capture the entire tour.


    This was a band at the top of its game, still ascending in the wake of three straight hit albums: Workingmans Dead, American Beauty and the live Grateful Dead (Skull & Roses). It had been a year since the lineup had gone to its single-drummer configuration, six months since Keith Godchaux had been broken in as the groups exceptional pianist, and this marked the first tour to feature Donna Godchaux as a member of the touring band. This would also be Pigpen's final tour with the band.


    There was a ton of new, unreleased material that came into the repertoire in the fall of 71 (after Skull & Roses was out) and during the spring of 72, including Tennessee Jed, Jack Straw, Hes Gone, Ramble on Rose, One More Saturday Night and Mr. Charlie. All those future classics were interspersed with songs from the aforementioned hit albums such as Cumberland Blues and Sugar Magnolia, as well as spectacular versions of Truckin and I Know You Rider.

    LP1
    1. Cumberland Blues (Live in England 1972 Version)
    2. He's Gone (Live in Amsterdam 1972 Version)

    Go To Heaven

    Limited Edition Grateful Dead Authorized Release of their Legendary Go To Heaven on 180 Gram Vinyl


    Mastered for Vinyl from the Original Arista Records Tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios with Kevin Gray


    The iconic Grateful Dead recorded their brilliant rock classic Go To Heaven for Arista Records in 1980. Featuring the stellar line-up of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Billy Kreutzman, Mickey Hart and Brent Mydland, Go To Heaven was a very successful achievement for the much loved band, whose legacy continues to grow and attract new legions of fans every day.


    Filled with nine compositions from Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Billy Kreutzman and Brent Mydland along with friends Robert Hunter and John Barlow, the Grateful Dead's Go To Heaven offers a stunning view of a very popular band's experimentation and wizardry in the studio setting. Produced by Gary Lyons, this masterpiece reached the upper rungs of the album charts that year, as the band trekked across the globe with their monumental concert tour which have made them the legends they are to this day. The original vinyl album has been out of print for over the past three decades, making this a highly collectable recording in their massive catalog. That is, until now.


    Brilliant tunes like the opening hit single Alabama Getaway and the rockin' Don't Ease Me In feature the warm and familiar voice and guitar of the late great Jerry Garcia. These two tunes were solid rock radio hits and gave the listener just a taste of the brilliant sounds they would be rockin' to from this classic album. The great Bob Weir delivers three of his most revered Dead classics with the funk rocker Feel Like A Stranger, the jazz rock vibe of Lost Sailor and his stellar Saint Of Circumstance. The multi-talented Brent Mydland contributes several more Dead classics like his Far From Me and the fan favorite Easy To Love You, making this one of the more intriguing albums in their arsenal of fine recordings.


    The Grateful Dead's Go To Heaven 180 Gram Audiophile album will be packaged in a poly bag to preserve the rich details of the legendary cover art as well as a poly lined inner sleeve to protect your vinyl purchase for years of enjoyment.

    While glancing at the song list may not reveal any surprises, finicky and hard to please enthusiasts will be thrilled by above-average playing from start to finish...Garcia seems to be in good spirits, as his resounding vocals and fretwork are consistent and exceptional. In his intangible fashion, Garcia is able to elevate the proceedings from being merely adequate into the occasionally rarefied air of excellence. -Lindsay Planer, allmusic.com

    Birth Of The Grateful Dead Volume One - The Studio Sides


    First Time Limited Edition 2 LP 180 Gram Vinyl Presentation


    Exclusive Only To This LP Release: First Time Sitting Photos Of The Dead By The Legendary Herb Greene


    Impeccably Mastered By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And Capitol Records, Hollywood, CA With Ron Mcmaster


    The legendary Bay area rock superstars the Grateful Dead scored for over four decades a plethora of wonderful recordings
    throughout their incredible career. Spearheaded originally by the late great Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kruetzmann and the late
    Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, these five gentlemen set the world on fire with their magnificent artistry and musicianship which is unparaleled to this day.


    With their very first San Francisco gigs and studio recordings when they were locally known as The Warlocks, the historical importance of these debut sessions would soon become a blueprint for the music world as the Grateful Dead would become one of the band's
    and biggest concert attractions of all time.


    Over a decade ago, the Grateful Dead unearthed 17 super rare studio recordings from 1965 through 1967. Aside from an ultra rare
    45 on Scorpio Records and a collaborative effort with Jon Hendricks on Verve Records, none of these recordings were ever released.
    Ranging from the very first sessions at Autumn Records (Beau Brummels, Sly Stone) and then the Scorpio Records sides, these tracks
    simply became manna for the fans and were truly a find for any collector of fine rock and roll and early psych and garage rock fare.


    Gordon Lightfoot's Early Morning Rain kicks off the collection, and then the fireworks light up as future Dead classics like I Know
    You Rider, Don't Ease Me In and Cold Rain and Snow truly become a very important and interesting listen to any fan of the Dead or
    classic rock in general.


    Known for their jams in concert and in the studio setting, you will get to hear stellar takes on rare tracks like Tastebud, The Only
    Time Is Now, and of course the super rare Jon Hendricks (Lambert, Hendricks & Ross) protest rocker Fire in the City.


    These amazing Dead recordings have never been released on the vinyl format that is until now


    Friday Music is very pleased to announce for the very first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl - The Grateful Dead's Birth Of The
    Dead Volume One-The Studio Sessions. This deluxe 2 LP set not only has the original 17 studio sessions unearthed by the Dead themselves, but it also includes for the very first time anywhere, several unearthed photos from the lens of the legendary Herb Greene. These
    first time issued photos show the very first sittings of the Grateful Dead and will make your listening hours that much more enjoyable as
    you stare at the brilliant pictures of your favorite rockers in this very special era.


    As a further installment in the exclusive and authorized Grateful Dead Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this fine
    album is part of a historical two part audiophile vinyl series along with the Birth Of The Dead Volume Two-The Live Sides which will be
    released in early 2014.


    Mastered impeccably for vinyl by Joe Reagoso (Grateful Dead) at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records, Hollywood, CA, this
    limited edition audiophile version of Birth Of The Dead Volume One-The Studio Sessions will truly be a welcome addition to your Dead

    When The Fire Is Dead In The Grate


    Two Brand New Exclusive Tracks


    700 Limited Edition Copies


    Following Wolf People's critically acclaimed 2013 release, Fain, comes this 4-track 12
    featuring two of the album's most accomplished songs and two brand new tracks. When the
    Fire is Dead in the Grate has quickly been established as a fan-favorite throughout venues
    during their European tour. Stewart Lee described the song as ....the album's first stone
    classic, a funky folk-metal workout that trails off into a compellingly extended coda, both
    guitarists circling and dovetailing and spiraling. A brand new track, Become the Ground,
    breaks new ground for the band, being, perhaps, their most obviously folk-influenced song to
    date. It's a beautiful duet between lead singer Jack Sharp and guest vocalist Nicola Keary before
    the song breaks into a swirling psychedelic jam.


    The B-side of the 12" is made up of the first
    track fans heard on Fain, All Returns, but now coupled with All Returns Part II, the song's

    AOXOMOXOA

    The Grateful Dead's 1969 release Aoxomoxoa is the band's third overall and first foray into 16-track recording. The technological advancements and lack of record label encroachment allowed the band a freedom to explore and experiment in the studio as never before. That along with the blossoming Jerry Garcia/Robert Hunter songwriting partnership made for artistically groundbreaking material that would serve as the band's last overtly psychedelic studio release.

    Anthem Of The Sun

    Ranked 287/500 on Rolling Stone Magazine's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time.


    Originally released in 1968, the aspiring Anthem of the Sun is the second album from The Grateful Dead and it finds the band refining the dynamics of their live set in the confines of the studio while simultaneously challenging the conventions of the LP medium. The addition of lyricist Robert Hunter and percussionist Mickey Hart helps take the Dead's brand of improvisational psychedelia to new heights here and displays that they could be as equally transcendent in the studio.

    Birth Of The Dead Volume Two - The Live Sides

    Exclusive Only To This LP Release: First Time Sitting Photos Of The Dead By The Legendary Herb Greene


    Impeccably Mastered By Joe Reagoso At Friday Music Studios And Capitol Records, Hollywood, CA With Ron McMaster


    The legendary Bay area rock superstars the Grateful Dead scored for over four decades a plethora of wonderful recordings throughout their incredible career. Spearheaded originally by the late great Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kruetzmann and the late Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, these five gentlemen set the world on fire with their magnificent artistry and musicianship unparalleled to this day.


    With their very first San Francisco live gigs and when they were locally known as The Warlocks, the historical importance of these debut concert recordings would soon become a blueprint for the music world as the Grateful Dead would become one of the biggest concert attractions of all time.


    Over a decade ago, the Grateful Dead unearthed 14 super rare live recordings from the mid-sixties. None of these recordings were ever previously released at the time. Recorded in San Francisco from a July 1966 performance, when they were signed to the Scorpio Records label, this ultra rare concert tape simply became manna for the fans and was truly a find for any collector of fine rock and roll and
    early psych and garage rock fare.


    Dead fan favorite Viola Lee Blues kicks off the rare collection, and then the fireworks light up as future Grateful Dead classics like Don't Ease Me In and the stellar Jimmy Reed classic Big Boss Man truly become a very important and interesting listen to any fan of the Dead or classic rock in general.
    Known for their jams in concert, you will get to hear stellar takes on rare blues tracks like One Kind Favor, Next Time You See Me and
    of course their super rare Bob Dylan interpretation of It's All Over Now Baby Blue, which would be an interesting choice not knowing there
    would be future collaborations with Dylan in both of their important later careers.


    Even superlative covers of Otis Redding's Pain In My Heart and the Slim Harpo blues champion I'm A King Bee are included in this amazingly important and historic rock release from this much loved band.
    These Grateful Dead recordings have never been released on the vinyl format that is until now
    Friday Music is very pleased to announce for the very first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl - The Grateful Dead's Birth Of The Dead Volume Two-The Live Sides. This deluxe 2 LP set not only has the original 14 live performances unearthed by the Dead themselves, but it also includes for the very first time anywhere several unearthed photos from the lens of the legendary Herb Greene. These first time issued photos show the very first sittings of the Grateful Dead and will make your listening hours that much more enjoyable as you stare at the
    brilliant pictures of your favorite rockers in this very special era.


    As a further installment in the exclusive and authorized Grateful Dead Friday Music 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Series, this fine album
    is part of a historical two part audiophile vinyl series along with the Birth Of The Dead Volume One-The Studio Sessions which was released
    in late 2013.


    Mastered impeccably for vinyl by Joe Reagoso (Grateful Dead) at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records, Hollywood, CA, this
    limited edition audiophile version of Birth Of The Dead Volume Two-The Live Sides will truly be a welcome addition to your Dead collection.

    Fillmore East 2-11-69

    Live at the Fillmore East 2-11-69 is a double live album by the Grateful Dead recorded during the Live/Dead tour on February 11, 1969 at the Fillmore East in New York City.


    Performing two hour-long sets as the opening act to Janis Joplin's New York debut as a solo star, the Grateful Dead turned in a characteristic performance for this period in their career. In between the release of their second and third albums, they devoted much time to the songs that would turn up several months later on Aoxomoxoa, including acoustic renditions of Dupree's Diamond Blues and Mountains of the Moon. Pigpen dominated the first set, singing the blues standards Good Morning Little Schoolgirl, I'm a King Bee, and Turn on Your Lovelight. But a large part of both sets was given over to the group's extended medleys, in the first set Cryptical Envelopment/The Other One, in the second Dark Star/St. Stephen/The Eleven. These involved, largely instrumental pieces set the tone for the Dead at the end of the '60s and produced their breakthrough with Live/Dead, which was recorded within weeks of this show. There is also a game version of Hey Jude, the biggest hit of the previous year, to end the first set, and an unlisted, interrupted performance of Cosmic Charlie as a second-set encore.

    American Beauty

    The Most American Folk-Rock Ever Made: Indelible Harmonies, Spare Playing, and Gorgeous Textures Surround Masterfully Crafted Songs


    Close Your Eyes As the Dead Serenade You in Your Room: MoFi Edition of American Beauty Epitomizes Realistic Space, Vocals, Instrumentation, and Ambience


    Ranked #261 on Rolling Stone's List of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time: Includes "Truckin'," "Sugar Magnolia," "Friend of the Devil," "Ripple"


    American Beauty is the most perfectly realized, superbly played, and openly natural folk-rock record ever released. They don't make albums like this anymore, but thankfully, Mobile Fidelity's extraordinary 180g 45RPM 2LP set allows you to experience this 1970 masterpiece with unrivaled intimacy, realism, detail, and perspective. The Dead might as well be sitting on a Persian carpet right in your living room.


    The pinnacle of the Dead's studio output, American Beauty lives up to its name-as well as that of the "American Reality" ambigram on the iconic cover. Airy vocal harmonies blow like fresh breezes. Strummed acoustic guitars amicably intermingle with plaintive percussive beats. Warmth, relaxation, and poignancy envelop the performances and create sensations of bliss, peace, and honesty. Songs flower with majestic melodies and emotionally direct lyrics. It's a rare album that invites and makes you feel, restores one's faith, and renews one's appreciation for all life offers.


    Mastered from the original master tapes and pressed on 180g LP at RTI, this deluxe analog set possesses seemingly limitless dynamics, reference-grade presence, and expansive soundstages. The seamless, effortless integration of the group's vocals has always been a high point of American Beauty, and when you hear it here, you'll want every record you own to sound half as good. Every member's distinctive singing resounds with tube-like clarity; the intended expressionism is as plain as day. Instruments, too, resonate in glorious Technicolor. The supple tension of Phil Lesh's bass lines, charismatic timbres of Jerry Garcia's pedal-steel fills, and interwoven dialogue between the pianos and percussion are rendered with lifelike scale and tone.


    Made just months after its companion release, Workingman's Dead, the San Francisco legends' second 1970 masterpiece furthers the former work's close-knit relationship between country and folk while adding extra rock and bluegrass currents. Understated amplified passages, graceful melodies, layered singing, and old-time string flavors-including mandolin work from masterful guest David Grisman-bestow the material with easygoing, comfortable vibes. Again taking advantage of the best songwriting of Robert Hunter's career, the Dead turns in its most collective studio performance, with every individual contributing equally and focusing on nothing but the songs at hand.


    Indeed, Garcia doesn't even indulge in a single guitar solo on the record. A majority of fare lacks any significant instrumental breaks. The Dead recorded the foundations (drums, bass, acoustic guitars) of nearly every track live, which helps explain why American Beauty sounds so powerfully rich and clear. Coupled with the band's personal reflections of the circumstances surrounding them-Bob Weir's parents had died, Garcia's mother and Lesh's father were in the process of passing, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan's health was in decline-these characteristics combined to yield a purity of heart that exceeds that managed by Dead peers (and roots revivalist leaders) The Band and Bob Dylan.


    From Garcia's breathtaking gospel-laden homage to his mother ("Brokedown Palace") to Lesh's healing salve in the form of the groove-based "Box of Rain," from Weir's jaunty and free-wheeling summer escape "Sugar Magnolia" to McKernan's eloquently simple homespun plea "Operator," all the way to the closing autobiographical anthem "Truckin'," American Beauty feels like the warm, spirit-infusing embrace of a loved one after a long journey away. Welcome home.
