American Beauty is the fifth studio album by rock band the Grateful Dead. Released November 1, 1970, by Warner Bros. Records, the album continued the folk rock and country music style of their previous album Workingman's Dead, issued earlier in the year. Though the Americana approach is still evident in the songwriting, comparatively the sound focused more on folk harmonies and major-key melodies, showing influence from Bob Dylan and Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.
Released in 1970, American Beauty was recorded by the band during the same sessions during which their previous album, Workingman’s Dead was also recorded. Both of these albums have a bigger emphasis on harmonies and acoustic instrumentation with a focus on the country folk sound. A third album was planned to complete a trilogy of albums in the style of Americana, Ramblin' Rose, though the album was never finished. American Beauty is ranked at on Rolling Stone’s list of The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, three spots above Workingman’s Dead. American Beauty Q&A.
With 1970's Workingman's Dead, the Grateful Dead went through an overnight metamorphosis, turning abruptly from tripped-out free-form rock toward sublime acoustic folk and Americana. Taking notes on vocal harmonies from friends Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, the Dead used the softer statements of their fourth studio album as a subtle but moving reflection on the turmoil, heaviness, and hope America's youth was facing as the idealistic '60s ended
