Grateful Dead Tribute Album Could Break HIV Fundraising Records.


Day of the Dead, is a love letter to the Grateful Dead, curated by The National rockers Aaron and Bryce Dessner. A tribute to the eclectic and iconic band from the era of psychedelic music, the album took four years to collect and compile.

Featuring over sixty artists from a variety of musical backgrounds, (including Mumford & Sons, Wilco, Courtney Barnett, and The National) the set reinterprets the songs and sounds of the Dead for a whole new generation.

A project of Red Hot, the international organization dedicated to fighting HIV  through pop culture, Day of the Dead,  is expected to break the organization’s previous fundraising records.

The 5-hour, 59-track album features artists from Mumford & Sons to Wilco, and Courtney Barnett to The National. Full Story Here.

    Wow, the price for the CD set is not bad — $29.99, and the MP3 is $22.49. The vinyl LPs are a little pricey at 141.74. I am not a big Grateful Dead fan, but I would think about picking it up to support the cause and to hear a different take on some of their music.
