Skeletons from the Closet: The Best of Grateful Dead is the first compilation album from rock band the Grateful Dead. It was originally released in February 1974. As with other such packages, the album was a way for Warner Bros. It was followed three years later by a second compilation, What a Long Strange Trip It's Been.

The Dead pretend they’re a singles band in this collection of their best-known shorter tracks. The cumulative results are distinguished, not by profundity or virtuosity, but by a characteristic pleasantness. The album boasts attractive melodies and supple rhythmic patterns. But the anthology also exposes some ongoing weaknesses: dull recorded sound, thin instrumental arrangements, frail vocals (except for Bob Weir’s occasional leads) and, more generally, music consistently without sufficient emotional depth or narrative strength

Skeletons from the Closet: The Best of Grateful Dead was the first compilation album from the Grateful Dead. It was first released on LP in February 1974. The release was a ploy for Warner Bros. Records to cash in on the escalating popularity of the band after they had left to start their own label. Three of the tracks were not original Dead album studio recordings.

Well, aparently The Grateful Dead mixed those and came up with a more psychedelic Beatles song. 2. Truckin': This song is probably on the top 3 most popular Grateful Dead songs. Probably because of how careless it sounds. I find the lyrics to be great, like "What in the world ever became of Sweet Jane, she lost her sparkle you know she isn't the same. Livin' on Reds, Vitamin C and Cocaine. All a good friend could say is isn't it a shame. The rythm guitaring and bass fit in with the drums great. The lyrics by Bob Weir seem like they have a great meaning to them and are stacked great, like "Saw my baby down by the river!!, knew she'd have to come up soon for air". I think the guitaring and cymbal patterns are extremley unique.

Skeletons from the Closet has been long-lived as a Grateful Dead primer, though it was superseded by The Very Best of the Grateful Dead in 2003. Fans of the band's live show have noted that Skeletons only contains two live tracks from a band whose live shows are its strongest suit.
