Uncle John's Band (Remastered Version)
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
After almost falling off the edge of their own psychedelic planet, the Grateful Dead rode off into the sunset, venturing into the high lonesome sound of country rock. More high than lonesome, Workingman's garnered two radio hits with the bouncy, folkie "Uncle John's Band" and the country-funk strut of "Casey Jones." The 2004 reissue adds some prime examples of these folk songs in the live setting as well as an amusing radio spot.
