When the Grateful Dead released "Wake of the Flood" in the fall of 1973, the album's cover featured gorgeous artwork by the great Rick Griffin, who had done the cover for "Aoxomoxoa" as well as numerous posters for the Fillmore and Avalon. The promo poster and card, though, promised "all new stuff." While this was technically true, to the extent that nothing on the album had been recorded and pressed yet, we were very familiar with many of the tracks, which we'd been hearing live for most of that year. I think "Rolling Stone" panned it, but it remains one my favorites.

    Yeah, The Dead had some GREAT art work for their albums and posters! Music was not bad either.
