For all of you that missed The Grateful Dead phenomenon back in the heyday of the sixties here's your chance to rediscover a slice of history. Of course many of you will already have this, The Grateful Dead's first album release in LP format and its more recent CD format; I fall into the former group. This CD has been re-mastered and sounds great; I compared it to my original CD and the new copy is noticeably enhanced. Some of my favorite "Dead" tunes appear on this disk. The Golden Road (To Unlimited Devotion) into Beat It on Down The Line and one of my favorites, Morning Dew make this 15 track jewel worth the price of nostalgia. Yes 15 tracks and not 9. This CD includes 6 tracks previously not included on the album, among them are: Alice D. Millionaire, Overseas Stomp, Tastebud, Death Don't Have No Mercy and Viola Lee Blues (studio and live). This wonderful recording glistens with a vibrant energy unheard of today by any band.
