Tom Constanten - Grateful Dreams (2000)


Grateful Dreams is a solo album by Tom Constanten, a classically-trained keyboardist who was a member of the Grateful Dead from 1968 to 1970. The album is a new age effort that features piano- and synthesizer-fueled versions of Grateful Dead classics and other evergreens.

As with the last post, there is no point in me regurgitating information on Constanten when that's best found elsewhere. And just as with the last post, I'll again direct you to a link to the book "Grateful Dead FAQ: All That's Left to Know About the Greatest Jam Band in History," which has a full chapter on Constanten called "Dark Star: What Place Did Tom Constanten Have in the Dead's Music?" It's the only general interest book on the Dead to compile a large amount of information on this shadowy figure in Dead history.
