Grateful Dead

The Warner Bros. Studio Albums 180-gram Vinyl Box

Between 1967 and 1970, the Grateful Dead recorded five studio albums for Warner Bros. Records that formed the psychedelic canon on which the band’s live legend was built.

Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Workingman’s Dead and American Beauty with THE WARNER BROS. STUDIO ALBUMS, a five-LP boxed set. The collection contains The Grateful Dead (1967),Workingman’s Dead, the original mix of Aoxomoxoa (1969), and American Beauty (1970), plus the original mix for Anthem Of The Sun (1968), available on vinyl for the first time in nearly 40 years.

The set also offers detailed replicas of the original albums housed in a hard-shell case that protects and stores the music with the accompanying 12" x 12" book including unpublished photos and new liner notes by Blair Jackson. To ensure the highest degree of quality, the albums were pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI using lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.

Order from and you'll receive an exclusive reproduction of a rare 1968 7" single (in a picture sleeve) that features the studio version of “Dark Star” (b/w “Born Cross-Eyed”) that clocks in at a concise 2:38. You'll also receive a reproduction of a rare 1967 promotional poster for the first album from the Warner Bros. Records archive.

I caved in...

...and ordered it.

However, I decided to go with Amazon. I know I miss out on the the 45 and the promo poster but it cost me sixty Australian dollars less than it would have from here. I figured a 45 and poster weren't worth sixty bucks.

Saying that, I support the product and would always prefer to order from here but I think the postage costs are a bit unfair sometimes. Overseas customers shouldn't have to pay inflated postage costs so that US customers can get free postage.

Anyway, how about restocking the store with the Live/Dead double LP?

touching II

I'm with JShelley (?). We hate to be picky but.... PLEASE handle w/care, Touch the LP like it's supposed to be. It made me cringe as well eyeing your fingers all over the grooves. We appreciate the video info & know you mean well but as a child of vinyl, OH, MY, GOD, you're not getting anywhere near my records.

Thanks for the vid David. It looks like a cool set. It took a long time to wean myself off vinyl and I am not sure I am ready to go back yet and buy the same albums for the 4th or 5th time.But I am sure the hard core collectors and vinyl freaks will love this.

But just one thing

get your sticky fingers off the playing surface David! (can I buy that copy at a discount?)

1st record

Does anyone know if the first album will have the extended bits on some of the songs that the remastered cd had or will it be the version that was on the original vinyl?
