Various Artists: The Music Never Stopped: Roots of the Grateful Dead (Shanachie) While the late Jerry Garcia’s tastes in music were nigh impeccable, the Grateful Dead were invariably at their weakest playing others’ songs. This collection of original versions of well-known Dead covers, then, pays the debt with a gracious tip of the ol’ high hat. The vast sonic territory runs from rural blues to Dylan; toss in a scarifying R. Crumb cover illustration, and it’s a must for Deadheads and the unconverted alike. A+
