The first Grateful Dead album, recorded in 4 days on 3-track equipment, and mixed in 1 day. The cryptic lettering on the cover reads:

"In the land of the dark the ship of the sun is driven by the Grateful Dead"

Though often criticized for it's faster-than-usual tempo, this album effectively captures the fervor that became a Grateful Dead hallmark. It includes a sample of their extended jamming abilities, fine vocal performances, and several songs that remained in the setlist throughout their career.
