Album Notes

The Grateful Dead Movie includes film of the hotel being demolished.

The album cover displays another example of strange lettering on Dead album covers. The lettering on the front cover upside down and mirrored reads “Ugly Rumours”. This phrase has become an alternative title used by fans for the album.
