Grateful Dead - Workingman's Dead 2x 180g 45RPM Vinyl LP (MFSL 2-428)

Workingman's Dead is the fifth album by the rock band the Grateful Dead. It was recorded in February 1970 and originally released on June 14, 1970.

The band returned to the Pacific High Recording Studio in San Francisco to record the album and spent just nine days there. Garcia noted that "let's do it all in three weeks and get it the hell out of the way". Besides the weight of their debt in producing their previous album, Aoxomoxoa, the band was also dealing with the stress of a recent drug bust in New Orleans—which could have possibly resulted in jail time—and their manager Lenny Hart (father of drummer Mickey Hart) skipping town with a sizeable chunk of the band's wealth. "In midst of all this adverse stuff that was happening ... {recording the album} was definitely an upper," said Garcia in an interview.
