The Dead pretend they’re a singles band in this collection of their best-known shorter tracks. The cumulative results are distinguished, not by profundity or virtuosity, but by a characteristic pleasantness. The album boasts attractive melodies and supple rhythmic patterns. But the anthology also exposes some ongoing weaknesses: dull recorded sound, thin instrumental arrangements, frail vocals (except for Bob Weir’s occasional leads) and, more generally, music consistently without sufficient emotional depth or narrative strength. The selections are well chosen and the album’s 45 minutes are generous by current single-LP standards. In This Article: The Grateful Dead.
Well, aparently The Grateful Dead mixed those and came up with a more psychedelic Beatles song. Truckin': This song is probably on the top 3 most popular Grateful Dead songs. Probably because of how careless it sounds. I find the lyrics to be great, like "What in the world ever became of Sweet Jane, she lost her sparkle you know she isn't the same. Livin' on Reds, Vitamin C and Cocaine. All a good friend could say is isn't it a shame. The rythm guitaring and bass fit in with the drums great. The lyrics by Bob Weir seem like they have a great meaning to them and are stacked great, like "Saw my baby down by the river!!, knew she'd have to come up soon for air". I think the guitaring and cymbal patterns are extremley unique.

Records, three years after the Skeletons from the Closet compilation. Both albums are subtitled "The Best of the Grateful Dead". Unlike the previous compilation, What a Long Strange Trip It's Been is a double album. After the Grateful Dead had completed their contract with Warner Bros
Records, the Grateful Dead left the label and started their own production and publishing arm for the release of their albums and other projects. After Wake of the Flood was successfully released on the independent Grateful Dead Records, Warner Bros Eight of the tracks are from Dead studio recordings, and two are from live albums. Skeletons from the Closet was certified as a Gold Album in 1980, thereafter becoming the best-selling release by the band. It remains so despite the abrupt mix of styles presented (due to the band's stylistic evolution while signed with Warner Bros
Skeletons from the Closet has been long-lived as a Grateful Dead primer, though it was superseded by The Very Best of the Grateful Dead in 2003. Fans of the band's live show have noted that Skeletons only contains two live tracks from a band whose live shows are its strongest suit.
