The Grateful Dead drew deep from the well of American music to create their unique blend of folk-rock. A menagerie of styles, blues, bluegrass, old-time country, and jug band music, formed a solid base for over thirty years of musical exploration. It will perhaps strike some people as odd, but many of the Grateful Dead's influences would be identical to those that helped to spur the late-'50s folk revival. Son House and Lightnin' Hopkins would be brought to the Newport Folk Festival in the mid-'60s, while Furry Lewis would be familiar to many from the Anthology of American. Catfish has bypassed the usual liner notes for more pertinent brief bios of the performers who appear on the album. While this collection certainly elucidates the roots of the Grateful Dead, it also works as a great bunch of songs. The Roots of the Grateful Dead will perk up the ears of deadheads and non-deadheads alike.

The Grateful Dead is the debut album of the Grateful Dead. It was released by Warner Bros. Records in March 1967. According to the biographies of both bassist Phil Lesh and drummer Bill Kreutzmann, the band released the album as San Francisco's Grateful Dead. The album was primarily recorded at RCA's Studio A, in Los Angeles, in only four days. The band had wanted to record the tracks in their hometown of San Francisco, but no recording studios in the area had modernized equipment at the time

From ballads by country legends such as Merle Haggard to foot-stomping gospel numbers like Samson and Delilah, the Grateful Dead were a veritable looking glass into the history of American Music. This CD is a look back at those roots, with all songs recorded by the original artists.

The Grateful Dead's roots can be traced to Palo Alto, California, circa the early 1960s. Music and literature fan Garcia met lyricist Robert Hunter, soul and blues aficionado Ron Pigpen McKernan and guitarist Bob Weir. In 1964 the latter two and Garcia formed a folky, old-time string band called Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions. Inspired by the Rolling Stones, this trio decided to bolster their sound with a rhythm section. In the decades since, various members of the Grateful Dead have continued touring under different monikers, including the Other Ones, RatDog, Furthur and the Dead. However, the band came together to celebrate their fiftieth anniversary in a big way: in 2015, Weir, Lesh, Kreutzmann, and Hart teamed up for multiple "Fare Thee Well" farewell concerts, which were touted as the last time the four musicians would play together.
The Grateful Dead (and Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions) adapted "Minglewood Blues," "Big Railroad Blues" and the epic "Viola Lee Blues" from those recordings. Well worth checking out! 60S2NZ".
