Fillmore West 1969 - The Complete Recordings






Grateful Dead - Fillmore West 1969 - The Complete Recordings
$79.95

"Live/Dead" was the first live 16 track album ever made. It is unquestionably one of the two or three greatest live rock albums ever made. And it is arguably the Dead's greatest album; certainly it is the defining document of the first great era of Dead performance. This package represents the critical part of the raw materials that were used to create it, every note the band played from February 27th to March 2nd, 1969. For the first time you can hear this material in context; listen as Garcia puts down his acoustic "Mountains of the Moon" while Lesh and Weir start up the "Dark Star" you probably heard first. This is a special moment in the history of this band, and an incredible documentation of it.

"Fillmore West 1969 - The Complete Recordings" is the most significant audio release yet to emerge from the Grateful Dead's vault.Mixed from the master 16 track analog tapes by the Grateful Dead's studio ace Jeffrey Norman, and mastered in glorious HDCD, the box set features 51 tracks, about 10 hours of peak-era Grateful Dead on 10 CDs. Additionally, the box set includes a 76 page book featuring almost 100 photos by Herbie Greene, Rosie McGee, Baron Wolman, Amalie R. Rothschild, Peter Simon, Michael Merritt and others, as well as an extensive new essay by Dennis McNally. Virtually everything possible has been done to give the music and the packaging the due that this four night run of shows - widely considered the greatest such run in Dead history - deserves. Nothing less would do.

This special release is a LIMITED EDITION BOX SET of 10,000 units. Each box set will be individually numbered out of 10,000, and there will be no second pressings or reprints. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.All pre-orders taken before November 15, 2005, will receive an exclusive bonus CD containing previously unreleased Grateful Dead performances recorded at the Carousel Ballroom and Fillmore West between 1968-1970.
