On the Grateful Dead’s Anthem of the Sun the studio with its production work dissolves into live performance, the carefully crafted is thrown together with the casually tossed off, and the results are spliced together. The end product is one of the finest albums to come out of San Francisco, a personal statement of the rock aesthetic on a level with the Jefferson Airplane’s After Bathing at Baxters. To be sure, the album has its weak points, but as a total work it is remarkably successful, especially when compared to the first Dead album.
Digitally remastered reissue of the Country music king's 1983 debut album for RCA Records that was written and produced by Bee Gees Barry & Maurice Gibb. The set yielded the best selling Country single of all time (at this writing), "Islands In The Stream", a duet with Dolly Parton.
