For those who don't wish to bust their budgets on the 12-CD box set that this double-CD release originated from, BIRTH OF THE DEAD is an illuminating glimpse of the Grateful Dead's first steps, including demos and live tracks, which finds the collective emerging from its jug band beginnings into a vibrant folk rock outfit. They perform a rocked-up version of the ancient jug band song "Stealin'," and there's a rarity in "Fire in the City," featuring jazz singer Jon Hendricks, which was originally recorded for an anti-Vietnam War documentary. The second disc's live set includes a wealth of blues and folk covers, including Dylan's "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" and the mournful "In the Pines," all played with the nervous energy of a band that's unsure of just what thrills and terrors lurk around the corner.
