Rhino and Grateful Dead Productions are very pleased to announce the 180-gram vinyl re-issue of the original mono mix of the Grateful Dead's eponymous first album from 1967 as part of Record Store Day 2011. This is the first time this album has been made available in its mono mix in almost 45 years, and is going to be exclusively available at independent record stores around the country on April 16, 2011 as part of Record Store Day. The lacquers were cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, and the vinyl was pressed at RTI. This is a limited edition pressing of 3,000 copies, so be sure to get your copy early on 4/16.
