The Music Box
is a compilation album by the Postcards Of The Hanging Grateful Dead. It consists entirely of Bob Dylan covers, including a performance of "Man Of Peace" with the Grateful Dead backing Dylan. As the tracklist was chosen by [3 ] Bob Weir, most of the songs featured his lead vocals. This is in contrast to Garcia Plays Dylan which features Dylan covers with Jerry doing lead vocals.
