The Grateful Dead are a unique phenomenon. One of the most successful live touring bands in the world, their longevity is founded on their desire to play music their way, coupled with an extraordinarily close relationship to their huge following. Coming out of the San Francisco Bay area in the mid 1960's, the core band (there were many changes over the years) comprised Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, Bob Weir, Ron 'Pigpen' McKerman, Mickey Hart and Bill Kreutzmann.

At last. One of the most sorely neglected catalogs in music history has finally received the sonic upgrade it's long deserved, and the results are as heavenly as Jerry Garcia's mellifluous guitar tones. The analog refurbishment involves two of the most beloved rustic classics ever made, a high-flying debut, and a pair of experimental mind-benders.
