AllMusic Review by

The parking lot scene? Forget it. The nursery scene is where it's at with Rockabye Baby's Lullaby Renditions of Grateful Dead. Introduce those classic melodies at an early age with these all-instrumental lullaby versions of famous Dead songs. No meandering intros of extended Jerry/Bob guitar duels here, just the sweet tones of "Sugar Magnolia," "Truckin'," "Ripple," and others played with soothing marimba and soft synth sounds. The set list is solid, though hardcore Deadhead parents will probably want to rearrange the sequence to make sure baby gets to hear "Scarlet Begonias" into "Fire on the Mountain." Sorry, no "Drums/Space."
