  • By any measure, 1970 was a high point for the Grateful Dead. Following the incredible success of Workingman's Dead that summer, the band returned in the fall with the equally stunning album American Beauty. These back-to-back classics not only introduced songs that would be an important part of the group's live repertoire for decades to come, but they also opened a gateway to the world of the Grateful Dead for generations of Dead heads. American Beauty will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2020.

    American Beauty (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) features the band's previously unreleased live performance from February 18, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre, one of the most sought-after archival recordings in the Dead vault. That night, the Dead debuted a slew of new songs on stage, five in all: Wharf Rat, Playing In The Band, Bertha, Greatest Story Ever Told and Loser. Fans were also treated to some standbys from the past decade, including St. Stephen and an inspired Dark Star jam that led into Wharf Rat and back to Dark Star. Notably, keyboardist Ned Lagin (who played piano on American Beauty in Candyman) sat in with the band for the show.
