CD Reviews

An Outstanding Selection
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The selection of music on this CD really does give an accurate representation of "the roots" of the Grateful Dead's sound. However, it's more than just a CD of the original versions of songs that the Dead covered. This CD contains a wonderful selection of "early" American music from folk to country to rock. You don't have to be a Dead-head to like this CD; you just have to be a fan of good music."
Great look at Roots of American Music
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Grateful Dead, during their tenure as America's perennial road band, frequently covered classic songs from many genres of music. From ballads by country legends such as Merle Haggard to foot-stomping gospel numbers like Samson and Delilah, the Grateful Dead were a veritable looking glass into the history of American Music. This CD is a look back at those roots, with all songs recorded by the original artists. I highly recommend this recording for anyone curious about where the Grateful Dead got their ideas and influences, as well as anyone who would like a concise look back at some of the best music created in this country to date."
Original Versions Of Some Great American Songs
Chris Luallen | Nashville, Tennessee | 12/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"One of the things that made the Grateful Dead such a great band was their deep roots in American traditional music. This CD contains the original versions of 17 songs played by the Dead, with recording dates ranging from Cannon's Jug Stompers' "Big Railroad Blues" in 1928 to Dylan's "Baby Blue" in 1965.

Almost all of the songs are excellent. Some of the older ones are poorly recorded but still fascinating to listen to. The genres covered include blues, country, folk, R&B, gospel and rockabilly - a wide spectrum that offers a balanced sense of the numerous influences on the Dead and rock music in general. Even if you aren't a Deadhead this is still a great compilation that should be appreciated by anyone who is a fan of American music."
