iconic Grateful Dead recorded their brilliant rock classic Go To Heaven for
Arista Records in 1980. Featuring the stellar line-up of Jerry Garcia, Bob
Weir, Phil Lesh, Billy Kreutzman, Mickey Hart and Brent Mydland, Go To
Heaven was a very successful achievement for the much loved band, whose
legacy continues to grow and attract new legions of fans every day.

Kreutzman and Brent Mydland along with friends Robert Hunter and John Barlow,

Gary Lyons, this masterpiece reached the upper rungs of the album charts that

which have made them the legends they are to this day. The original vinyl album
has been out of print for over the past three decades, making this a highly
collectable recording in their massive catalog... that is until now!!!
