Grateful Dead - American Beauty

 (50th Anniversary Remastered Edition)

50th Anniversary Edition 180-gram vinyl

Newly mastered in 2020 by Grammy-winning engineer David Glasser

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 261/500!

The crown jewel of the Dead's studio output!

American Beauty'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.

Newly mastered in 2020 for the 50th Anniversary by Grammy Award-winning engineer, David Glasser.

This a great sounding LP. Very quiet, flat, dynamic, great pressing and recording. It sounds wonderful!

One of the greatest R&R records ever recorded

It doesn't get any better than this: masterpieces of songwriting, Jerry's hauntingly beautiful guitar work, surprisingly good ensemble singing, the magic of the Grateful Dead, even a brilliant original song by Pigpen. Robert Hunter here establishes himself as perhaps the greatest lyricist of his generation. All the reasons this band collected its huge fan base are on this record.
