Often hailed as one of Grateful Dead’s most accessible albums along with its follow-up, American Beauty, Workingman’s Dead placed its focus on tighter songcraft in a country/folk-oriented vein that would later be described as “Americana.” It introduced the group’s first chart hit, the timeless “Uncle John’s Band,” as well as the favorite “Casey Jones” which has received substantial airplay over the years as well. Workingman’s Dead: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will arrive as a 3-CD set. The original album has been newly remastered on the first disc. The second and third CDs present a previously unreleased concert from February 21, 1971 at Port Chester, New York’s Capitol Theatre. A vinyl picture disc presents the remastered original album only.
