I searched this and it hasnt been done. The Grateful Dead are known for their Live albums, but are often overlooked for their studio work, other than American Beauty. So , whats your favorite Dead studio albums, and why??? Mine , at the moment are Blues for Allah and Wake of the Flood. BFA has this awesome middle eastern , spiritual feel to it that I really dig. WOTF just has great songs overall and much better style than any of the albums before it.
