''Grave Dancers Union'' is the official sixth album by Soul Asylum. It was released in 1992 (see 1992 in music). The cover illustration is by erotic art photographer Jan Saudek. The album's title comes from the line "I tried to dance at a funeral, New Orleans style, I joined the Grave Dancers Union, I had to file," from the song "Without A Trace." The album spent 76 weeks on the ''Billboard'' music charts and was certified triple-platinum in 1993.

Lead singer Dave Pirner now often dedicates "Without A Trace" to the memory of late bassist Karl Mueller.

In the middle of the sessions, producer Michael Beinhorn grew dissatisfied with drummer Grant Young's performance and brought in Sterling Campbell. It was the beginning of the end of Young's tenure in the band. He and Campbell would each wind up playing on about half the record. Campbell eventually was named the band's official drummer. - Wikipedia
