Details

[Edit]

The Grateful Dead's debut album includes most, but not all, of the components that made the San Francisco band an American musical institution. There's a stronger garage-rock sound here than there would be later—though few, if any, garage bands could handle the guitar work of young Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir, as heard on the brutal workout of Jesse Fuller's "Beat It on Down the Line." As with many young bands, the Dead's writing wasn't yet what it would be. The band is credited with "The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion)" and Garcia with "Cream Puff War"; many other tunes are classic blues, and "Morning Dew"—a future Dead concert favorite—is from the pen of Canadian folk singer Bonnie Dobson. Bill Kreutzmann is the band's sole drummer here, and Ron "Pigpen" McKernan's keyboards and harmonica work help define the group's sound in crucial spots. Elements of blues, country, folk, jazz, and rock 'n' roll are shuffled together in a way that suggests enthusiasm if not yet expertise. Welcome to 1967 from the West Coast of America.
