Grateful Dead Release Steal Your Face
Steal Your Face is a live double album by the Grateful Dead, released in June 1976.
The album was recorded live in concert between October 16 and October 20, 1974 at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom as part of the band's then-"farewell run."
The title of the album derives from the lyrics of "He's Gone" (Like I told ya, what I said, steal your face right off your head), a song that fittingly does not appear on the album.
The album is generally considered by Deadheads to be the Grateful Dead's worst live album, both due to the poor sound (some songs had to be overdubbed in the studio) and song selection (it focused on the band's songs rather than jams, although to more casual listeners that is often an improvement). Indeed the record was dubbed Steal Your Money by fans at the time (also by the band), as many questioned the band's motives for releasing it.
