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albums housed in a hard-shell case that protects and stores the music with the accompanying 12" x 12" book including unpublished photos and new liner notes by Blair Jackson.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.

I'm keen to get this...

...it actually looks great.

BUT don't you think free shipping for US residents and AUD$50 (or so) for Australian residents is a but steep? I know I always go on about the postage but $50 seems a bit harsh. Oddly rush shipping is cheaper than standard shipping.

I was actually a few clicks away from ordering this until I saw the postage costs. Can anything be done about this? Will it be available anywhere else online soon? If that's the way it goes, I suspect several people will be frightened out of getting this...

touching

David et al...

As a vinyl child of the 60's it hurts me to watch you touch the groove themselves as you take out the record to show us. PLEASE put your thumb on the outer edge and your pointer finger in the middle of the 33 or hold the 45 hole with same. PLEASE.

This looks great and with the original mix of Aoxomoxoa making a reappearance after so many years, it's simply amazing!

Thanks David, et al - this will be an awesome addition to any collection!
