Happy 50th Anniversary to the Grateful Dead’s Debut Album
March 17, 2017
Fifty years ago today, the Grateful Dead made their very first impression on a number of listeners with their eponymous 1967 debut.
Capturing a band very much still learning how to be a band, many of the songs would hang around for the entirety of the Dead's reign like "Cold Rain and Snow," "Morning Dew" and "Viola Lee Blues," among others as Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann and Pigpen honed their sound born from the Bay Area.
To celebrate the record, listen in its entirety as the 50th anniversary edition is unveiled.
