Editorial Reviews

The iconic Grateful Dead recorded their brilliant rock classic Go To Heaven for Arista Records in 1980.
Featuring the stellar line-up of Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Billy Kreutzman, Mickey Hart and Brent
Mydland, Go To Heaven was a very successful achievement for the much loved band, whose legacy
continues to grow and attract new legions of fans every day.
Filled with nine compositions from Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Mickey Hart, Billy Kreutzman and Brent
Mydland along with friends Robert Hunter and John Barlow, the Grateful Dead s Go To Heaven offers a
stunning view of a very popular band s experimentation and wizardry in the studio setting. Produced by Gary
Lyons, this masterpiece reached the upper rungs of the album charts that year, as the band trekked across
the globe with their monumental concert tour which have made them the legends they are to this day. The
original vinyl album has been out of print for over the past three decades, making this a highly collectable
recording in their massive catalog... that is until now!!!
As a fifth installment in our Grateful Dead 180 Gram Audiophile Series, Friday Music is very honored to
announce the limited edition Grateful Dead authorized release of their legendary Go To Heaven. Mastered for
vinyl from the Arista Records tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios, this
wonderful album will truly be a welcome addition to your Dead collection.
Brilliant tunes like the opening hit single Alabama Getaway and the rockin Don t Ease Me In feature the
warm and familiar voice and guitar of the late great Jerry Garcia. These two tunes were solid rock radio hits
and gave the listener just a taste of the brilliant sounds they would be rockin' to from this classic album.
The great Bob Weir delivers three of his most revered Dead classics with the funk rocker Feel Like A
Stranger, the jazz rock vibe of Lost Sailor and his stellar Saint Of Circumstance. The multi-talented Brent
Mydland contributes several more Dead classics like his Far From Me and the fan favorite Easy To Love You,
making this one of the more intriguing albums in their arsenal of fine recordings.
The Grateful Dead s Go To Heaven 180 Gram Audiophile album will be packaged in a poly bag to
preserve the rich details of the legendary cover art as well as a poly lined inner sleeve to protect your vinyl
purchase for years of enjoyment.

Friday Music... Alabama Getaway-Getaway

Ok, granted, nobody's gonna mistake this album for "Workingman's Dead" or "American Beauty". But it isn't a genuinely bad album, either. It appears that I'm the first to review the Rhino re-issue, but judging by some of the reviews of the earlier Arista release you'd think that the Dead had commited some kind of crime against humanity in releasing this album. 'Tain't so! The fact is, if you listen to it for what it is (and what it isn't) and with an open mind, you'll soon realize that there's some pretty good stuff here. Althea, for example, is a great song and would have fit in very nicely on, say, "Mars Hotel". "Lost Sailor" and "Saint Of Circumstance" are both decent cuts as well-- despite some other people's negative views-- and would not be out of place on Weir's "Heaven Help The Fool". And the updated "Don't Ease Me In" is a fun and well-played alternate version. In fact, in my opinion, there's not a truly bad song on this album. A lot of people knock Brent's contributions. Alright, no one will ever confuse him with Robert Hunter. But his songs aren't really bad, either. It seems that some people who smugly consider themselves "experts" on the Dead (the same, presumably, who continually bash "Steal Your Face") have tried to make beating up on this release some kinda national passtime, and it was actually out of print for awhile as a result. That's really too bad. If you TRULY love 'em, you know that ANY Dead is good Dead-- some is perhaps just a little bit "less" good. This album is, in general, "less good" compared to some. But it ain't at all bad, either. And by the way, about the cover art. Doesn't anybody get the joke?Read more ›

I remeber this album as one of the first Dead albums that the production started sounding full and worthy of the dead rythym section in the studio. Alabama Getaway is a perfect blend of commercially slick radio friendly sound while still retaining Jerry and Bob's superior technique and road earned mastery of subtle riffing and rythmic augmentation. Althea is so Deadly it defines the power of artistic hippy musical apptitude. I love this album because it is presentable to the mainstream but retains its freak flag flying high buried deep in the highest production fidelity money can buy. If you don't have a fully developed dead ear for psychadelic sound you can start your journey on track number one of Go to Heaven and work your way back to the first Dead Album. Enjoy the research. My the force be with you.

I had to jump on here and comment on this, as only one other person had bothered to do so thus far.

Except for the original vinyl pressing, every other copy of this album I've ever heard sounds like CRAP. The original CD release was particularly insulting. Leave it to Rhino to dig out the original master and lovingly transfer it to CD, as usual. This album now has a full-bodied and dynamic sound that it's NEVER had before; you're definitely hearing what the band heard in the studio when they listened to the final master. I can assure you that if you have the appropriate equipment, you'll be floored by the sound.

As far as the album itself, yeah, it's not one of the best things the band has ever done (hence the 4 stars), but it's worth buying just for Lost Sailor, which has been my long-time favorite Dead cut. You can get better Live versions of most of the other cuts on here but the studio version of Lost Sailor is something special. Not to be missed, especially given how great it sounds now.

Well, there's been much criticism for the title and indeed the sleeve photograph, but actually this Dead record can be judged more favourably on the contents. Side two is a little dark, with the exception of "Saint of Circumstance", but side one contains some jewels. "Feel like a stranger" is very strong, "Alabama Getaway" surprising and "Lost sailor" and "Far from me" quite nice. But prince among ordinary citizens is "Althea", which has become one of my favourite Dead songs.
"Go to Heaven" may not be an excellent studio album, but we all know that the Dead were at their best when playing live. You won't go to heaven with this one, but you won't go unrewarded.
Hans Wigman.

Everyone has their favourite period of The Dead and I tend to like Mars Hotel and Wake of the Flood best. Go to Heaven does not fall into this era, however, this is a good album and I reccomend it. Musically, it is right up there, perhapse close to the masterpieces of American Beauty, Workingman's Dead and Europe '72. This album has beautiful songs with pleasing chord progressions, well, Lost Sailor and Saint of Circumstance at least. Some of the other tracks are more traditional Garcia Dead sounding. You will like this one if you are a fan of Bob Weir's voice, as I am, and like keyboards as well as guitars.

It's not American Beauty or Workingman's Dead, but this isn't that bad an album. Nowhere as bad as Dylan and the Dead. This gave us Don't Ease Me In, Sailor and Saint, and one of my all-time first set faves, Althea. The album is worth the $ for Althea alone, though some versions on some Dicks Picks kick butt and make this sound a little flat. Still, be kind. Any Deadhead should own this, if only to complete their 500-CD Dead collection...
