Show Notes

Duplicate track listing. Original mix & 1971 mix, both newly remastered + Winterland, San Francisco, CA 10/22/68.

Grateful Dead continue its ambitious 50th anniversary reissue series with Anthem Of The Sun: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition. The band’s most experimental album, Anthem Of The Sun was an unprecedented mix of studio and live recordings stitched together to create a hybrid. Fifty years later, it remains a pinnacle of psychedelic music. It also marked a departure for the band, as they began to channel their creativity into longer jams on songs like Alligator and Caution (Do Not Stop On Tracks) – two live staples of the Dead’s early days. During this period, the band included: Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Ron “Pigpen” McKernan, Phil Lesh, Mickey Hart, and Bill Kreutzmann.

This includes two versions of the original album — one fully remastered from the original 1968 mix, and the other remastered from the more well-known 1971 mix. Both mixes of the albums were mastered by Grammy®-winning engineer David Glasser from the original analog master tapes.
