Those longing for the full-on old-school back-dated tie-dyed electric Kool-Aid acid test Grateful Dead experience will be totally tripped out to hear that on Sept. 21, Rhino Entertainment is issuing a boxed set of the Dead’s five Warner Bros. studio albums on vinyl LPs.
The albums — “The Grateful Dead,” “Anthem of the Sun,” “Aoxomoxoa,” “Workingman’s Dead” and “American Beauty” were originally released on LP by Warner Bros. between 1967 and 1970. They’re being reissued in 180-gram versions. The set will include new notes by Dead authority Blair Jackson.
Priced at $134.98, the forthcoming package doesn’t include the storied 1969 concert set “Live Dead,” also originally released by Warner Bros. But those who order the collection from Dead.net will receive a bonus 7-inch single of the live album’s centerpiece “Dark Star” in its 1968 studio incarnation.
Is this the perfect gift for Seth Rogen?
