Grateful Dead: The Grateful Dead (1967)
Deluxe anniversary edition on vinyl picture disc

First in a series of re-issues of ALL official
Grateful Dead studio and live recordings!

Limited to 10,000 copies worldwide 2017 marks the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead's eponymous debut studio album. What better way to celebrate than with a special album reissue series that will include two-disc deluxe editions and limited edition vinyl picture disc versions of all the groupís studio and live albums! THE GRATEFUL DEAD was recorded and mixed in five days before its release in March 1967. It captures the Dead's early sound with a mix of electrified jug band stomps ("Sitting On Top of the World"), Chicago blues ("Good Morning Little School Girl"), crazed modal improv ("Viola Lee Blues"), and Dylan-y put-downs ("Cream Puff War").
