The Grateful Dead: Steal Your Face

Max Bell, New Musical Express, 24 July 1976

SURPRISE, SURPRISE. THE new Dead album is coming in for the most monumental panning. Seems that for the past four years (at least) they've been constantly referred to in absentia, in the past tense. "Oh no, not another double live album! Not more three hour concerts! Poor Jerry – dead as a doornail."
