The Grateful Dead: Grateful Dead (Warner Bros.)

Jon Tiven, Phonograph Record, November 1971

I APPROACHED THIS album with mixed feelings; one side of me saying "Well, you love the Dead don't you?" and the other half repeating "They went commerical, and this ain't no different."

Total word count of piece: 542
