You've got to hand it to these guys. "Cumberland Blues" is a song they still haven't exactly invented a category for. It's just steeped in bluegrass and country, but it's actually closer to a rock song. You could describe it as country-rock, but it sure doesn't sound like The Eagles. Actually, a lot of the songs on "Workingman's Dead" and its companion album "American Beauty" have a unique sound that often isn't exactly rocking, but more like haunting. A lot of the songs on those two albums bring out ghosts from some strange corner of the American psyche. So yeah, during this period the Dead were Americana before Americana even had a name.
