In the Dark is the twelfth studio album by the Grateful Dead. It was recorded in Januaryand released on July 6, In the Dark was Lovers In The Dark - The Rabble* - Leps And Other New Words (Vinyl band's first album in six years, and its first studio album since 's Go to Heaven.
It became unexpectedly popular, achieving double platinum certification in the U. It reached No. The peppy " Touch of Grey " peaked at No.
Most of the songs had been played by the Dead since orwhich gave them a five-year edge on perfecting them for the album. After the critically panned Go to Heavenwhich contained songs that were mostly under a year old, the maturity of In the Dark was significantly more appreciated. Since the band had been playing the songs for some time, they decided to record the baseline tracks for the album in a darkened theater "In the Dark" that was empty no audienceon a stage with the same lighting as they would use on tour just to have the band perform in a more comfortable, familiar setting.
The idea was to capture the "feel" they had for the songs as if they were playing them to a live audience. Drummer Bill Kreutzmann reminisced, "We ran all the electric instruments through amplifiers in the basement, in isolation rooms, and kept the drums bright and loud on stage.
Everything was fed to a recording truck parked outside the venue. Everybody played their parts in real time, together. When we took breaks, we'd go into the wings by the stage door and sit there and talk about what we'd just done. Talking about the music, then going right out to play the music, then talking about it some more was something that we really should've done more often — the analysis served the songs and the camaraderie served the band.
It really put us in a good spot. They then brought these recorded tracks to the studio and, if needed, "cleaned" them up, overdubbing them or redoing a guitar, vocal, keyboard, or drum track in the studio using the same riffs they used on the stage recording.
Garcia spoke about the recording in an interview; "Marin Vets turns out to be an incredibly nice room to record in. There's something about the formal atmosphere in there that makes us work. When we set up at Front Street to work, a lot of times we just sort of dissolve into hanging out.
