Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo
Let Me Sing Your Blues Away
Here Comes Sunshine
Eyes of the World
Weather Report Suite
The Dead's first studio album after the arrival of keyboardist Keith Godchaux shows them making their first moves toward a more sophisticated sound and away from their primal psychedelic/folk beginnings. While tracks like "Mississippi Half-Step Uptown Toodeloo" and "Row Jimmy" still showcase their rootsy early-'70s vibe, the jazz-influenced "Eyes of the World" and the epic "Weather Report Suite” show the band embracing a more harmonically and structurally complex approach, adding horns and other additional players to expand the Dead's already-rich sonic palette.
