Beyond Description CD Box

sku: GRA1140003


Bringing together the albums released on Grateful Dead Records and later Arista, this monumental 12-disc box represents the second leg of the Dead's long, strange trip. Each title is expanded with rare and previously unreleased material from the vaults -- 65 bonus tracks in all.

The box contains the albums Wake Of The Flood (1973), From The Mars Hotel (1974), Blues For Allah (1975), Terrapin Station (1977), Shakedown Street (1978), Go To Heaven (1980), Reckoning (1981), Dead Set (1981), In The Dark (1987), and Built To Last (1989). Two 100-page books include a discography, rare photos, and essays by Dennis McNally, David Fricke, David Gans, Blair Jackson, David Lemieux, and many others.
