iTunes Review

Donna Jean Godchaux and Keith Godchaux left the band, keyboardist Brent Mydland signed on, and The Grateful Dead recorded this underrated album at the start of the '80s. The questionable "disco" moves and harsh blues of Shakedown Street were replaced with a warmer sound truer to the band's live persona, with songs that were easily plugged into the Dead's setlists. The revved-up Chuck Berry rock 'n' roll of "Alabama Getaway" went to FM radio, while Mydland made his presence known by writing two songs: the soulful "Far From Me" and the soft-rocking "Easy to Love You," which would still make a great tune for Crosby, Stills & Nash. (Like much of the material here, that was cowritten with John Perry Barlow.) "Althea" is Garcia and Robert Hunter's one powerful and understated composition, while Bob Weir and Barlow throw together three decent contributions in "Feel Like a Stranger," "Lost Sailor," and "Saint of Circumstance." Bringing things full circle is "Don't Ease Me In," which plays like a classic ensemble piece. And it should; the Dead first played the tune back in 1965 when they were still The Warlocks.

It's still jerry!

No matter what anyone says, jerry is the best. This album might not get the respect other dead albums get but its still tight.

What's not to love?

I was 16 when this came out and it was the fist Dead album I ever bought. I love it to this day. Brent's songs are excellent! Lost Sailor and Saint of Circumstance are classics that jam in concert. Althea and Alabama Getaway are great songs. This is a great overlooked Dead album!

Rock's longest, strangest trip, the Grateful Dead were the psychedelic era's most beloved musical ambassadors as well as its most enduring survivors, spreading their message of peace, love, and mind expansion across the globe throughout the better part of three decades. The object of adoration for popular music's most fervent and celebrated fan following -- the Deadheads, their numbers and devotion legendary in their own right -- they were the ultimate cult band, creating a self-styled universe all...
