Grateful Dead - Standing on the Moon
Additional thoughts on our host's favorite band below the fold.
I like but don't love the Grateful Dead. Their best known stuff like Casey Jones has never done much for me. On the other hand, I thought they had a real late career Renaissance with In the Dark and Built to Last (where this song comes from).
Also, I never appreciated how good they were vocally until lambert posted their a capella national anthem last month. As I listened to it I thought, damn these guys could bring it. (I'll admit I've long thought their main talent was REALLY LONG jam sessions.)
As someone who's only grazed their catalog, here's my Sunday morning open thread challenge to lambert and the other Deadheads out there: Name the one (only one!) album you'd recommend to someone to get the very best the Dead have to offer. I'll take suggestions throughout the week, announce the selection in next week's Sunday Morning Music, buy the album and put it in my queue. (It'll probably take a few months to get to, though. I keep a long queue!)
