About this item
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.
The album is released as a 12-inch vinyl picture disc produced in a limited edition of 10,000 copies, which will feature the remastered 1971 mix of the album.
