    Default Grateful Dead "American Beauty" and "Workingman's Dead" to be released by MFSL SACD

    I was told by a friend of mine who knows the "higher ups" and mastering engineers at MFSL that they are planning to release The Grateful Dead's "American Beauty" and "Workingman's Dead" on hybrid SACD. I don't know the date(s) of them yet. Just that they are "working on them". I am absolutely looking forward to this as "Workingman's Dead" is one of my all time favorite albums! I'll keep you guys informed as I learn more.

    It's not on SACD Jesse, but MFSL did the "silver disc" of Mars Hotel about 20 years ago. My friend had a copy of it in his record/CD shop a couple months back but assumed you owned it already. If you do not, I can see if I can pick it up for you?

    I've had a copy of the Mars Hotel silver on sale on Amazon for about $8 for months now, don't know why it hasn't sold. Jesse if you want it it's yours.
    Good music, a good source, and good power can make SDA's sing. Tubes make them dance.

    I'll think about it. They did a great job on the Skull & Roses vinyl.
