Grateful Dead's American Beauty on numbered limited edition Hybrid SACD

Indelible harmonies, spare playing, and gorgeous textures surround masterfully crafted songs

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 hybrid SACD allows you to experience this 1970 masterpiece with unrivaled intimacy, realism, detail, and perspective.

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.
