The Grateful Dead Ballads

I was never a deadhead, but somehow I stumbled into the Grateful Dead today. I am now discovering the ballads of the dead, which fit nicely into my love for melancholic rock & roll. On this newsgroup I noticed that the ballads have a special place for many fans.

Here are a selection of 20 ballads in chronological order:
