Dark Star 45 Record T-Shirt (Red)

sku: GRA9000488

Short sleeve crewneck cotton t-shirt. Features artwork copied directly from Dark Star 7" single import from UK with 45 ring stealie in the middle.

About the artwork:
Released in April 1968, this design is from the UK import made in England, featuring the red Warner Brothers label being used at the time. This version of “Dark Star” was recorded in the studio during sessions for what would become the “Anthem of the Sun” LP, but was only available as a 7” single and only appeared again years later on the compilation “What A Long Strange Trip It’s Been.” Throughout their career, “Dark Star” was the song most closely associated with the band’s improvisational bent and usually clocked in at 20 minutes or more. For the purposes of the 45 release, this version is less than 3 minutes long, and is also notable for featuring a rare recorded appearance by Dead lyricist Robert Hunter reciting poetry in the closing seconds of the song.

Logo is direct copy from vinyl release therefore any illegible fine print, misspellings and smudges are normal.
