4.0 out of 5 stars These Boys Make a Joyful Noise !, 23 July 2007
This review is from: Workingman's Dead (Audio CD)
While not wishing to enter into any kind of discussion with reviewers who have expressed disappointment with this record, one can see how this can come about and it points out the need for a little research when beginning to listen to such a long-lived, prolific and diverse band.

In my opinion this is an excellent record giving sustained listening pleasure and, along with "American Beauty" of lasting interest and importance. Freaky space rock it certainly ain't, but who else could have produced a song like "Uncle John's Band" as well as the epic "Dark Star". The answer is, of course, no one else and maybe that's why The Dead are so well loved and followed even after all this time.

Getting into The Grateful Dead is a big, big adventure and what we have here is one of the many good places to start. May I also highly recommend, as a good companion to this CD the "Anthem to Beauty" DVD from the Classic Album series which gives much helpful and entertaining background material and insight into the creative processes of the band at that time.
