50th ANNIVERSARY PICTURE DISC. EDITION OF 15,000.
"The crown jewel of the Dead’s studio output! The album's original 10 tracks include many of the Dead's best-known, most-loved, and most popular songs both on record and in concert for the next 25 years. An album that includes “Box Of Rain,” “Friend Of The Devil,” “Sugar Magnolia,” “Candyman,” “Ripple,” “Brokedown Palace,” “Attics Of My Life,” and “Truckin'” looks more like a greatest-hits compilation than a second album of 1970, and yet American Beauty demonstrates a band unable to slow down in terms of the quality of its writing, recording, and performing. This limited Picture Disc features customized album artwork on each side of the LP. Limited Edition of 15,000. Newly mastered in 2020 for the 50th Anniversary by Grammy® Award-winning engineer, David Glasser."
