Rhino celebrate ‘Summer Of Love’ with Grateful Dead & Monkees compilations

Rhino are to issue Smiling On A Cloudy Day, a new Grateful Dead compilation in July.

This release is part of a ‘Summer Of Love’ celebration, with key album reissues and new compilations designed to provide a soundtrack to this very specific period in the late 1960s.

The Grateful Dead were at the epi-centre of the Haight-Ashbury scene and Smiling On A Cloudy Day brings together 10 songs from the band’s early psychedelic period and includes tracks like Morning Dew, China Cat Sunflower and St. Stephen.

The Grateful Dead release will be issued on vinyl and CD on 11 July 2017. On the same day a new Monkees compilation Summer Of Love will be issued.

juno have the dead as a purple vinyl

elliott buckingham

another site lists it as violet coloured vinyl


The grateful dead 1 is apparently colour vinyl


I`ve ordered the CD of the Dead release.
Coloured vinyl? Isn`t BLACK coloured vinyl? It`s the Henry Ford mantra for me where vinyl is concerned, I want any colour there is as long as it`s black!


For compilations, I think they are boring! 12 tracks of on one and 10 on the other, none of which I have even heard of, so not even any popular songs or hits..


I’ve ordered the Grateful Dead collection on CD, I love compilations, the Grateful Dead and that price.

Love’s self-titled 1st LP in Mono is also released by Rhino on the same day, only my dog knows why because it came out in March ’66. I’ve ordered, it’s a must have. ‘Forever Changes’ although released in November ’67 would have been more apt, especially a Mono vinyl release.

“Pleasant Valley Sunday” wasn’t a hit song? It sure was here in the US.

Stan Butler

It certainly was. No. 3 on Billboard and No. 11 in the UK
Also Randy Scouse Git (No. 2 UK)
Words, a b-side (No. 11 US)
Tapioca Tundra, another b-side (No. 34 US)
Porpoise Song (No. 62 US)
Where would we be without Wikipedia?

Not a greatest hits granted and poor value at that (The only Monkees album I own is a 3CD compilation, The Works, that cost less than this at the time and has a whopping 68 tracks)

Matt in USA

The GD set is shockingly redundant. Combined with the LST soundtrack, Rhino is over-estimating (or is it underestimating) the GD market this summer. How can a label that produces such extraordinary packaging / significant archival material stoop to this?


Rhino was never above stooping to this. Ever read “Rhino’s Psychedelic Trip”?
But yes, this seems like a new low.


COMPILATIONS? – There is bugger all on them to put them in that category! There are not even any hit song. BORING!

Lee Taylor

Wait, the Monkees album includes “Birth Of An Accidental Hipster” from last year’s Good Times!? Not exactly period-specific, there.


Now, if these were on lovely summer of love coloured vinyl, I’d be having them.


That a very curious attitude to have! Do you ever actually listen to music?

ive ordered the dead as its supposed to be on purple vinyl and I don’t own any dead music at all
