In 1970, the Grateful Dead pulled off a feat that that few bands ever achieve, and incredibly, they did it twice.
After June 1970’s release of Workingman’s Dead, the Dead had arrived. An album that would remain in the
upper echelon of Rolling Stone’s “best albums of all-time” lists for the next 50 years, the world now knew about
the Dead. And remarkably, the Dead not only did it again less than six months later, by many accounts they
outdid themselves with the follow-up release in November 1970 of American Beauty. The album’s 10 tracks
include many of the Dead’s best-known, most-loved, and most popular songs both on record and in concert for
the next 25 years. An album that includes Box Of Rain, Friend Of The Devil, Sugar Magnolia, Candyman, Ripple,
Brokedown Palace, Attics Of My Life, and Truckin’ looks more like a greatest-hits compilation than a second
album of 1970, and yet American Beauty demonstrates a band unable to slow down in terms of the quality of
its writing, recording, and performing.
