Introduction to the Discography

After searching cyberspace unsuccessfully for a satisfactory discography, I have given up and put this together myself. Credit for sources consulted goes first to the albums themselves, then to the songbooks; Ihor Slabicky's discography; DeadBase VIII; and to the All-Music Guide. I have also made links to the RoJaRo index to music magazines for lists of reviews, where available.

Scope: This discography is not [yet] an exhaustive listing of the appearance of any member of the Grateful Dead in any capacity on any album by anybody. It may get there eventually, however.

Albums are listed alphabetically, rather than chronologically. Links within the title lists lead, whenever possible, to a full annotation of the lyric. If the song is not an original song by the band, linked titles lead, generally, to the text of the song in the Digital Tradition folk song database. Additional links will be made for songwriters who are not members of the band, as they are found on the web.

Corrections are welcome!
