I don't think it's Bob Weir. Pigpen.
Question. The Grateful Dead label releases in the Beyond Description are described as expanded and remastered. My question is regarding the versions contained in the Grateful Dead Records Collection Digital Box: are these the same remasters as Beyond Description, or have they been given a new treatment? (I know that Steal Your Face is unique).
Are there any plans for 5.1 mixes to be included in future Anniversary releases. I'm hoping for 'Blues for Allah' 5.1 at the very least.

Looking for info for a cut from Aoxomoxoa. I read somewhere, a long time ago, that one of the songs was put together by using the entire GD sound as the vocal line. Or something like that. Ring a bell with anyone?
It was Garcia, talking about What's Become of the Baby. I don't remember the exact details of what he said, but he said if you really want that song to work get some nitrous. I'm sure if you look around on the internet, you can find exactly what he said.
I just typed in What's Become of the Baby/Garcia and it talks about how the Dead wanted the band coming out of one voice, but they didn't have the technology at the time to really pull it off. It's a real cool tune, with great lyrics. It sounds much better on the original mix of Aoxomoxoa then on the remixed version. The Dead only played it live one time in 1969, as part of an encore.
High-Ho! Still looking for other compulsive vinyl completists to share notes and "myths" of existing rarities. Discography section, ("Coming Soon"...), has been barren for ever. Anyone have any info to share on:
- Bob Weir - "Cassidy"/"One More Saturday Night" WB US STOCK Copy?
- Diga Rhythm Band - "Happiness is Drumming"/ "Razooli" - 7" single?
- "Anthem of the Sun" WB 7" Radio Spots?
A 40-Year collection, and a few "ugly rumors" of unknowns still exist. Info & photos welcome! - Way Out West
