Hey.Im the guy from sweden again.Remember me?I was in the usa last year in oct and had a great time.Saw Mr Betts in new orleans and Abb in memphis..I hope the Brothers will tour this summer..I have been saving money to see them again..This times a least 3 shows..anyway..Im also a big deadfan..Im gonna give a little review on the first dead album and im curious what you folks here thinks about it..I know there are some deadheads here.
The Grateful Deads debut from 67 i think as many others that some of the songs on this
album is rushed and played a little to fast,but it dosent really bother me..Sitting on top of the world really shows Garcias technical lead guitar solos..Morning dew is anothers highlight on the album with wonderful vocals and guitar playing from Garcia..But the Pigpen workout Good morning little school girl dosent do him justice..Listen to live versions
from 67-69 where he really shines..But the really highlight are Viola lee blues..Its gives you glimpses whta this band was about live in the early acid days..Tight bluesy and folky rock
with a touch of psychedelia and great jams..i think the album is great,but as on many dead albums the songs are better live..the vocal on this album i pure joy..The way the dead blend their harmonies are a joy to hear..whats your opinion??

LOL!!!

Seriously though, the first Dead record is pretty good. I love Golden Road because in retrospect it is so un-Dead like. I can well imagine two go-go girls dancing to it. Morning Dew and Minglewood were and are classics. A fine first effort.

If you liked the original, i highly reccomned checking out the new remastered edition. Its got really good extended versions of songs and even a few that were written for the record but never put on and they ae excellent.

It goes without saying that it's a fabulous album, especially in the expanded format - pure acid garage ballroom!

Good album, but I prefer any bootleg from that year over the studio album, any day of the week.

The first album is a classic. "The Golden Road" is a cool tune. And yes, it's rushed and a little amaturish, but that's what's great about. The expanded version has most of the songs that faded out, not faded it out. (The way it was intended) I can't even listen to the original now and there are some great bonus tracks. Very cool. The Dead are one of those bands that are a lot of fun to listen to them grow through their albums (and tapes).

Still my fav. Dead LP.I rem. being on vacation w/my parents as a kid,& buying the LP at a big Dept. store in Birmingham,Al. I had to wait 2 weeks to get home to hear it.Needless to say,my Dead journey began as soon as the needle hit the 1st track.....also,1 of the all-time "coolest" LP covers...IMO ...

Well everybody's dancin' in a ring around the sun
Nobody's finished, we ain't even begun.
So take off your shoes, child, and take off your hat.
Try on your wings and find out where it's at.
