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.
