Description

In the studio and more than 2,300 concerts between 1965 and 1995, the Grateful Dead performed more than 400 different songs. Their music continues to be tremendously popular as surviving band members and countless tribute bands memorialize the legacy the band left us upon the death of lead guitarist and singer, Jerry Garcia. The Grateful Dead's 100 Essential Songs examines the band's remarkable musical journey, pairing song analyses and memories with an online list of recommended recordings. Beyond a mere summary of each song, the descriptions here compare individual performances as they relate to the evolution of the band's style and the waning health but vibrant spirit of Garcia. Welcoming readers into the unbroken chain of the Dead's legacy, this book is indispensable for Deadheads, students of popular music, rock musicians, and anyone marveling at how the Dead's appeal continues today. With linked performances and studio recordings to allow readers to listen along with the book, as well as other song analyses and first-hand narratives of the authors' experience at hundreds of Dead concerts, the book will appeal to Deadheads, students of popular music, rock musicians, and anyone marveling at how the Dead's appeal continues today. The online song list may be accessed under the features tab at https://rowman.com/ISBN/9781538110584.
