today’s tunes: the Grateful Dead’s “Morning Dew” by The National

one of the early releases from ‘Day of the Dead’, a tribute album to the Grateful Dead.

Day of the Dead was created and curated by brothers Aaron and Bryce Dessner of The National.  The compilation is a wide-ranging tribute to the songwriting and experimentalism of the Dead which took four years to record, features over 60 artists from varied musical backgrounds, 59 tracks and is almost 6 hours long.  Day of the Dead will be released digitally, on 5 X CD, and as a limited edition vinyl boxed set.  All profits will help fight for AIDS/ HIV and related health issues around the world through the Red Hot Organization, a 501(c)3.  This is the 20th album of original music produced by Red Hot to further its mission.  Day of the Dead is the follow up to 2009’s Dark Was The Night (4AD), a 32-track, multi-artist compilation also produced by Aaron and Bryce for Red Hot.  Dark Was The Night has raised over $1.5 million for the organizations fighting AIDS to date.

additional information can be found at 4AD’s release.

    It’s good to see you’re continuing your important duties, Mr. Ambassador. I’ve never been a Dead Head but I like that tune.
