They were born in the psychedelic Sixties, but as the decade came to an end, The Grateful Dead took a step back from their sonic experimentation and dug deep into the Americana flavors of folk music. The results were two albums that were both accessible and successful.
As lyricist Robert Hunter explained, "It was a surprise to us – as it was to everybody else: this machine-eating, monster-psychedelic band is suddenly putting out sweet, listenable material."
