Grateful Dead: Workingmans Dead (1970), 3CD 50th anniversary edition,
with bonus live CDs from the Capitol Theare, Port Chester, 21 February 1971

Due July 10th, WORKINGMANS DEAD: 50th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION will be available as a three-CD set and digital equivalents featuring the original album with newly remastered sound, plus an unreleased complete concert recorded on February 21, 1971 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY. The show was mixed from the 16-track analog master tapes by Jeffrey Norman at Bob Weirs Marin County TRI Studios and mastered by Grammy Award-winning engineer, David Glasser, along with restoration and speed correction by Plangent Processes. 2/21/71 delivers a plethora of songs from both Workingmans Dead and the bands follow-up album, American Beauty. Some highlights include Weirs moving vocal take on Me and Bobby McGee, Pigpen’s whiskey-seasoned growl on Easy Wind and a stellar run through Uncle John’s Band to close out the show.
