Grateful Dead, The (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition)
Not yet reviewed.
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the band's self-titled debut album, US icons the Grateful Dead will launch a two-disc deluxe edition which includes the original album with newly remastered sound, plus a bonus disc of unreleased recordings.
The band recorded and mixed The Grateful Dead in five days before releasing it in March 1967. It captures the group's early sound with a mix of electrified jug band stomps ("Sitting On Top of the World"), Chicago blues ("Good Morning Little School Girl"), crazed modal improv ("Viola Lee Blues"), and Dylan-y put-downs ("Cream Puff War").
The deluxe edition's bonus disc unearths unreleased recordings from the band's performances at the Vancouver Trips Festival in 1966. Only a few recordings from the Dead's first two years exist, but each one reveals corners of the band's repertoire not captured anywhere else.
The original album has been newly remastered from the original tapes.
The bonus disc of unreleased concert recordings from July 29 and 30, 1966 at the P.N.E. Garden Auditorium in British Columbia has been mastered by Jeffrey Norman (Metallica, The Doobie Brothers, Captain Beefheart).
