Product Description:

Tributee: Grateful Dead.
Whether or not these 22 songs inspired the Grateful Dead or not, this would still be a nice collection, and it's surprisingly varied, including blues pieces, jug and string band reels, country and rockabilly tunes and more. Any disc that has gems as varied as Slim Harpo's "I'm a King Bee," Hank Williams' "I'm So Lonesome I Could Cry," the Mississippi Sheiks' "Sitting on Top of the World," and Furry Lewis' "Kassie Jones" is worth checking out even without the Grateful Dead angle. ~ Steve Leggett
