Grateful Dead's Live at the Cow Palace Tops's List of Readers' Favorites During 1st Quarter 2007

The Grateful Dead's Live at the Cow Palace: New Year's Eve 1976 was the most popular album among The Music Box's readers during the first quarter of 2007. John Mayer's Continuum, Son Volt's The Search, and America's Here & Now followed.

Oak Park, IL, April 09, 2007 --( Popular magazine The Music Box has released the ranking of its readers' favorites for the first quarter of 2007. Topping the list is the Grateful Dead's Live at the Cow Palace: New Year's Eve 1976. Trailing the album are John Mayer's Continuum, Son Volt's The Search, and America's Here & Now. Said The Music Box's founder John Metzger, "After a very busy 2005, the Grateful Dead spent the entirety of last year shifting its archival business to Rhino. The Cow Palace set was a welcome return for the band, and it was highly anticipated by fans. Since it was founded in 1994, The Music Box has placed a heavy emphasis upon the Grateful Dead, so I'm not surprised that the album fared as well as it did, especially considering how good the set is." These rankings are compiled from sales and traffic statistics through The Music Box's web site.
