Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: The Grateful Dead Rated 1st!
The iconic Grateful Dead recorded their brilliant rock classic Go To Heaven for Arista Records in 1980. Featuring the stellar line-up of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Billy Kreutzman, Mickey Hart and Brent Mydland, Go To Heaven was a very successful achievement for the much loved band, whose legacy continues to grow and attract new legions of fans every day.
Filled with nine compositions from Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Billy Kreutzman and Brent Mydland along with friends Robert Hunter and John Barlow, the Grateful Deads Go To Heaven offers a stunning view of a very popular bands experimentation and wizardry in the studio setting. Produced by Gary Lyons, this masterpiece reached the upper rungs of the album charts that year, as the band trekked across the globe with their monumental concert tour which have made them the legends they are to this day. The original vinyl album has been out of print for over the past three decades, making this a highly collectable recording in their massive catalog... that is until now!!!
