What is your favorite album>? Why do you like the Dead? Who else has held it down with the sound they laid down???



My favorite album so far is From the mars hotel

My favorite track off of it is this

NC8lsWzrU3M





you might know the song as covered by Sublime

great stuff.....





Who has held it down like the Dead ??? Well , of course Phish and Bella Fleck and the flecktones and String Cheese incident....


Others have carried heavy influence from the Dead like sublime or even 311 for that matter.




I like the dead for the jazzy feel that is in the music over what IMO is folk music with a touch of country or even bluegrass. and of course they wrap it all up in a blues tortilla for you. There is tons of material to listen to and they tried their best IMO to stay fresh and evolve.





















Here is a lil loop I made off of Live from 72

Needles in my broken leg, listen to Grateful Dead

Grateful Dead are amazing. I don't know as much as I would like. From what I've heard though my favorite album is American Beauty. Perfect for an easy-going-puff-a-joint kinda day.

ok i like Candyman but what are their albums that stray farthest from Country roots? i dont hate country...but i cant stand it for too long.
