Grateful Dead

Anthem Of The Sun (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) CD

2-CD


Digital Download


“This is one the most thrilling albums the Grateful Dead ever produced, mixing portions of live recordings from the first six months of Mickey's tenure with the band, along with studio experimentations that would hint at where the Dead would go when they started recording to 16-track tape the following year. The 1971 remix, produced in order to make the album more accessible to the newer fans who were brought on board with WORKINGMAN'S DEAD and AMERICAN BEAUTY, has been the most commonly heard version for the past 45+ years. However, having this side-by-side with the original 1968 mix demonstrates countless differences, with the original mix being more primal, psychedelic, and experimental. Add to this the first extant live recording featuring Mickey as a member of the Grateful Dead, and you have a very special release in every way.” - David Lemieux

We're continuing our 50th anniversary reissue series with ANTHEM OF THE SUN: 50th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION, due July 13th. Released 50 years after its anniversary date, this two-disc deluxe version features a double dose of the original album - one fully remastered from the original 1968 mix and the other remastered from the more well-known 1971 mix - as well as a bonus disc of a previously unreleased complete live show recorded on October 22, 1967 at Winterland in San Francisco, CA. Newly remastered by Jeffrey Norman, this is the first known recording of the Grateful Dead with Mickey Hart, who joined the band in September 1967. The first run will come with a special lenticular of the cover.

Looking for something more byte-sized? For the first time ever, you can pre-order the high-def digital download of ANTHEM on Dead.net.

Do not stop on the tracks, grab a copy while you can!

Partial shows

There has to be a way to get two of the greatest partial shows of all-time, 10/25/69 and 11/2/69, out there. The DaP complete model rules it out, but one disc for the Aoxomoxoa 50th, and another for the Live/Dead 50th (unless they go the January 1969 route for that, which makes sense) may be our opening.

11/2/69's Dark Star, in particular, needs to see the light of day

Perhaps 11/18/72 is the answer

I remember at the time this 'show' was released there was talk here that only certain parts of the vault tapes were usable and suitable for remastering and release. Although technically not a highlights release due to the master tape limitations, it's a fabulous 1-sider nonetheless and could solve the one-disc-only dilemma Dave might have created for himself when this anniversary re-release project was conceptualized. I'm sure there are other partial shows that could be released given the right circumstances. That said, I agree with zally that full shows are the way to go and doubt anyone on this board would complain if we started getting an extra 2 or 3 disc show every year. Let's hope so!

future live shows

in responce to your post there should never be high lights from shows. if the show needs 2 discs then thats the deal. if more so be it. for me i only like 66 to 69 ,theres not that much of that time frame that has been released.also the set lists do have some variation so lets have a really obscure live show from 69 in the oxo deluxe 50th.

aoxo reel

hi edwin , warner bros never destroyed and master tape reel in their time of being a records company. yes sessions tape were recorded over with hence no outakes but when the lp was mastered the original multi track along with the mater tape used for the lp, cassette or 8 track were stored away. safety masters were cut for repressings cause of the oxide deteriotaing but as long as i know they were never used.the dead have all the completed masters with outakes the vault. they could even now remix working mans or american beauty( which could use a new mix as much of the guitars are buried) but i dont see that coming.

Aoxomoxoa 50th

I agree 100% that the original mix is way superior (got a used copy on vinyl in 1977 for $2), but my understanding is that once it was remixed, the original mix reel was trashed by Warner's.

Definitely agree about WBOTB. One of my favorite GD songs ever!

Aoxomoxoa 50th?

For Aoxomoxoa I hope they release the original mix. I haven't got it, or heard it for years-but its 100% better than the remix. There is so much more going on that you can hear. Even "Whats Become of the Baby" sounds good! So just that, and a live show would suit me fine.

there is no reason to reissue the remix of this lp. it was a awful idea then and still is now.the only buying point is the unissued 10/22/67 show. it has been around before but this is the correct runnning order. you still need to keep the issue from years ago cause of the alligator portion from the shrine 68 as a bonus track.ill let someone i know buy this and make a cdr of the live show. to much duplication.fair price but not when you consider your only getting one new disc of music you didnt already own.are they going to do the same with 50th aoxomoxa the orignal,remix ,live show ? i guess they are.

snugwuffle-the 60s

I have just seen your post from a few weeks ago, titled the Live Side. What you say corresponds with how I feel about The Dead at the moment. For the last few years, my favourite era has been 1972-74, but this year I have dropped back a few years. It started with buying the vinyl reissue of Binghampton 2nd May 1970-obviously a 70s show, but it has all the great characteristics of the late 60s. It isn't a song based show at all-all the great moments are in the very powerful jams-The Other One, Dancing in the Street and Viola Lee Blues. I think of this as primal Dead-incredible energy powered by Mickey and Bill at their peak.

After that, I got the vinyl November 1967 show from 30 Trips-again, incredible psychedelic energy. Then the Fillmore show 27th February 1969. I even popped for the 1966 Vancouver show in vinyl-not quite as powerful, but historically important, and with a great version of Cream Puff War, as well as a formative Viola Lee. Great stuff!

I am half way through the St Louis show from 17th April 1969 at the moment-in the download series-number 12. Its a wayward show-it starts with Hard to Handle with Jerry on slide-which doesn't really work for me, but after a solid Morning Dew goes into a great Dark Star. I love the tone Jerry got in 1969 on the red SG-and on this Star it sounds beautiful. It goes into St Stephen-which for no apparent reason drifts into Its A Sin. Then back into St Stephen again. Its the opposite of slick, the Dead at a hit or miss inspirational peak. The rest of the show looks like a wild ride through The Other One-Caution-The Eleven, framed by Lovelight and Duprees Diamond Blues. It must have been incredible to see them live in 1969.

So, lets hope for a 1969 box set!

The Live Side

I've been unhappy about the lack of 60s shows released in the last few years. The early 70s glut is nice, pleasant, and well-played, but just a bit too mellow for someone who prefers the fire of their first 5 years.

Every year, I resubscribe to Dave's Picks out of fear that another 60s show (like Thelma) will come out with a subscribers-only bonus disc, only to be disappointed for at least 2 years straight now. I mean, isn't that the decade in which they became famous and did their most adventurous work?

I even went out on a limb financially to spring for the 30 Trips box, knowing I'd only get about 4 shows from that great decade, and it was nice that one of them is essentially Side 2 of Anthem without the overdubs. Their feedback era had such a spirit of fun and abandon, doing nutty things (like feedback and kazoos) they would probably find dated and passe' within just a couple of years, but the humorous Prankster mentality prevailed.

Having a full show from 1967 just sweetens this package all the more! It looks like a tail end of their 67 set list with the beginnings of the Anthem trail-blazing! Truly a momentous transition.

Endless thanks, guys!

White Anthem Cover

At Peaches Records in Atlanta around 1976, I ran across a new LP of Anthem that had the white background on the cover, which is how the original cover painting looks, according to an interview with Jerry Garcia.

Stupidly, I didn't buy it, since I already had the album. I still shake my head at my lack of sense in letting it go by. I guess I assumed that would be the new standard cover art, that the inaccurate blue background had finally been corrected.

On the other hand, I am overjoyed that Phil's 1971 remix is finally going to be on CD. I had been hoping and praying for that, as the anniversary approaches.

The irony about all this is that the remix is being touted as "the one everyone is familiar with," which is only true in the vinyl world. Since it came out on CD just a little over a decade after the LP remix version, using the original 1968 mix for the CD, the 68 mix was at first the novelty of the CD, and interesting to hear, but it's now been the standard version on CD for over 3 decades. I'll bet more fans are used to the original mix after all these years.

I've always preferred Phil's remix, and I am overjoyed that we can have it on CD. I like the acoustic guitar on That's It For The Other One instead of just the organ, I like the closer-up drums that kick off the live portions, and I like the full ending on Born Cross-Eyed instead of the fadeout. The bonus track of Cross-Eyed on the Rhino reissue a few years ago added a much different final ending, much longer with more feedback, so I'm glad to have it done "right."

This is a joyful occasion indeed!

AOTS and Aoxomoxoa

I'd listened before to Mars Hotel, Blues for Allah, Europe 72. But for me that during a long time only listened to official albums, the holy grail, or trinity, were AOTS, Aoxomoxoa and Live Dead. Later Workingman's, and American Beauty. But those three records had the best representation of the most innovative music by this band.

Aoxomoxoa original mix

The funny thing about my experience whith this recording (Aoxomoxoa) is that the first copy that I had it was an American vynil that a older brother bought to me while he was studying in New York in the early eighties. It was the remixed version.

A few years after, in a local record store sale, I saw a cassete tape of Aoxomoxoa that named the band "The Greatful Dead', it turned to be the original mix, it was way different. And that was in the mid to late eighties.I suppose, that Warner Europe released a tape using a copy of an old original vynil or something like that.

Lately, I have bought the vinyl collection box, and I have to say that the original Aoxomoxoa recording is way different to the remixed version. Tbe original AOS isn't that different.

Now, how much copies of these recordings I bought? I don't know for sure...

Very Cool: both original & remix

being released. Hope they do the same with Aoxomoxoa. If you get the 50th Anniversary + the Golden Road versions of the 1st album, you also have the original release (50th) plus the restored tracks to their original length (Golden Road). With the 50th releases of Anthem and Aoxomoxoa, hopefully both versions will be there. Kudos.

Very nice cherry with some very rare 1967 stuff. Only the 2nd full show from that year, and the other is on the 30 Trips.

Official releases and live tapes-Gratefulhan

I did things the opposite way round-more by necessity than choice. I collected all their studio and officially released albums first, and it was about 12 years later that I got into collecting tapes.

Of the officially released albums, Anthem was the first to really turn me on, and I still think its great. Coming from a background of listening to British and German prog/heavy/psych bands, Anthem seemed more accessible. As opposed to more conventional sounding albums, like Working Mans Dead, for example, which sounded more like trad American music. It all worked out in the end.

10/22/67 Lovelight cut on Archive

I am interested in comparing the 2 versions of AOTS, but am even more excited about the 10/22/67 release as the great sounding Charlie Miller treated recordings on archive have the Lovelight cut.... THE REAL QUESTION IS: DOES THE DEAD HAVE THE ORIGINAL MASTERS OF THIS SHOW IN THE VAULT?, AND IF SO .... DO THEY HAVE THE ENTIRE LOVELIGHT?

If they don't have the full lovelight, then I can just keep listening to CM's treated recording. I have a midnight blue vinyl copy (I always thought it was purple) of AOTS and now I will have a reason to re-listen to it and check for 'RE' in the dead wax.
I also have an old CD version. If it turns out that I have both mixes already,then the question of the Lovelight cut and the Jeff Norman treatment of 10/22/67 will be the reason to buy this for me.

I don't listen to the studio stuff anymore, so this will be a good excuse to go back and relisten to this one.

The best thing about this release is that I am finally going to get clarity on the 2 different mixes. Thanks DEAD.NET!

Irony

So just recently I purchased my first ever Grateful Dead studio albums. Ever since I got on the bus it has only been tapes and live releases for me. I picked up the Golden Road box set which has all of the albums up to Bears Choice. Anthem is in there. That release has bonus material from the Shrine in 68 which I believe is what is now included on 2 from the Vault.

So with the new anniversary release I had to buy it as well. I am looking forward to the different mixes. It will be neat to compare the two. More so I am looking forward to the 2ND disc with the 10/22/67 show. Can't go wrong with that or this release in general. Still I find the irony that after being on the bus for over 25 years, I have made studio album purchases for the first time within a few months of each other. Only the Grateful Dead can do that for me.

re: Anthem

The first version of Anthem I ever heard was bought by a family member at a used record store in the late '60's. My first version was a standard mid '70's issue. His was different than mine. When I first bought a cd player back in '87, my first purchase was Anthem and we compared the two records to the cd with headphones. The cd is derived from the mix that was from his late '60's copy. The most obvious example is after Born Cross-Eyed which on '71 remix, ends with the note blast.

More Aoxomoxoa confusion...

"The original mix was later planned for CD release, but the original master tapes could not be located. When the masters were finally found, years later, they were used for The Warner Bros. Studio Albums vinyl box set, marking the first time the 1969 mix has been available since the 1971 remix replaced it, in 1972. The 2013 high definition remastering for download uses the remixed version - even though promotion related to this release declared "produced from the original analog master tapes in 2013, using the original album mixes"

Wikipedia is wrong

Having bought the vinyl WB box which includes the original mixes of both AOTS and AOXOMOXOA, I can tell everyone, definitively, that I have never heard any CD version with the original 1968 mix. All American pressings have used the 1971 remix. When I first listened to the vinyl original mix, my jaw hit the floor. It is quite jarring to ears that are accustomed only to the remix. In a good way.

A great release

I just got around to ordering this release thru Warner Music Group,
passing themselves as dead.net. I guess I am supporting this community and dead.net/Grateful Dead Productions, so it's a good thing. I have a nephew who has a great tech job at Amazon who knows I love the Grateful Dead and that I'm a non-stereotypical Dead Head. He'll probably just smile and say that's OK.

I'm very pleased that the 1st disc will contain the original 1968 mix and the 1971 remix. However, neither will sound exactly like their original vinyl releases, because vinyl sounds a bit different than CD, with its "warm" sound. The compact disc has no surface noise, no pops from scratches, no sounds of dirt/dust in the grooves, but a slightly harsher sound. It will be great to compare the mixes with the convenience of one single playback medium of the compact disc.

I'm glad that 10/22/67 was selected as the bonus disc as I never heard this show until recently via archive.org, and I really fell in love with it. I'm sure Jeff Norman will do a great/outstanding/excellent job with these recordings.

The show itself was a Marijuana Defense Fund benefit event. As I said earlier on the DaP26 thread, I don't use marijuana as I once did. I really don't need any mind/mood altering substances to enjoy the music of the Grateful Dead, if the occasion arises to get high/drunk, well that's a different story, and I take it one day at a time. It's the magic in the music itself that gets me in a good mood and high at the same time.

Patch, pin, tee, for this anniversary release ?

Rhino any Merch for this ?

I hope record shops in my area get some promo stuff to help sell this release. Was looking for some stuff from RSD but local guy said there was none. Best promo Merch from recent rhino release was Red Rocks 1978 show

Bonus disc selection of 10.22.67 ~ Winterland is not much of a surprise. Got this performance in Jeeb's Stash. Definitely a show that will stand the test of time as well.

Rhino is there any remnants from Columbus November 1968 performance stocked away in the vault ?

Anthem cd is remastered from the original mix

from wikipedia

Remix and alternate cover

A remixed version of Anthem of the Sun, supervised by Phil Lesh, was issued in 1972 (with the same product number, WS-1749), and can be identified by the letters RE after the master numbers. The remix particularly differs from the original in terms of segues, use of live recordings, and stereo imaging. For example, the original mix starts with vocals and organ panned wide, while the remix has them centered; Bob Weir's studio vocal on the first track is doubled with a live recording on the original mix and solo on the remix. "Born Cross-Eyed" ends with a power chord in the key of E on the remix, whereas the original mix has an earlier fade-out.

Around the same time Jerry Garcia supervised a remix of the Grateful Dead's following album Aoxomoxoa. While the Aoxomoxoa remix was used for original Warner Bros and subsequent Rhino CD issues, the original mix of Anthem of the Sun was chosen for CD reissues.
Alternate cover of Anthem of the Sun

In 2013 the Grateful Dead studio albums were remastered again for listening in digital high resolution. The 2013 download is the first digital issue of the Anthem of the Sun early 70s remix. Confusingly, the promotion for this reissue emphasized the use of original mixes (particularly those of the Workingman's Dead and American Beauty albums which had been remixed for previous high resolution digital releases).[9][10] However, Anthem of the Sun and Aoxomoxoa appear in the 2013 HD release not in their original mixes, but in remixed form, as released in 1972.

As remix masters were not sent to the UK, vinyl pressings of the album in this region (and probably other foreign markets) continued to use the original mix after 1972.[11]

When the album was reissued in 1975, Warner Brothers changed the background color on the front cover from midnight blue to white, and the stylized title was changed to a standard font. As the band had not approved the change, the following pressings reverted to blue.[12]

Here is the live recordings I was talking about. Me confused, although some of it is from Counterparts. I think the inside art work has some counterparts sketches, like a 3d type blue print art. Not in 3d, more like how architecture drawings look.

The "new" Neil Young release just arrived. Tonight's The Night Live, they call it from the Roxy in the Seventies.

It's sloppy, in that perfect Neil Young way. This one has gotten a lot of attention in the build-up. I can imagine you people liking it. Just sayin'.

Counterparts Tour

1994, not 1977

Gary, don’t worry about discussing Rush on this board, The Who vs Doors debate went on for days.

I saw the Counterparts show at The Palace.
Turns out it’s on YouTube, think I’ll watch it.

There is a ton of confusion about which Anthem mix is where -- even within this thread. I'm banking on DeadBase having the accurate goods on this issue. At this point it doesn't matter much, because we are about to get both on one CD.

They'll probably do the same with Aoxomoxoa next year. That one is way less confusing. The only recent release of the original mix was on the vinyl box of all the Warner's studio albums that Rhino put out. That mix is very different from any that you've been hearing on CD all these years.
