Sunshine Daydream Lands Grateful Dead on Billboard 200

The Grateful Dead’s newest archival release Sunshine Daydream: Veneta, Oregon – August 27, 1972 debuted at 19 on the Billboard 200 this week. The album marks the band’s highest charting record since 1987 when In the Dark climbed to 6 on the charts, which included the group’s only top 40 Billboard Hot 100 single “Touch of Grey” which reached number 9.

For comparison, Robin Thicke’s summer hit Blurred Lines came in at 12, while Elvis Costello and the Roots’ collaboration Wise Up Ghost turned in at number 16.
