Grateful Dead: Aoxomoxoa (Rhino)

Fifty years after its release, the flawed third studio album from San Francisco psychedelic titans The Grateful Dead finds itself reissued. The album was the band experimenting in the studio in an attempt to make an innovative studio album, thanks to the arrival of sixteen track technology. Unfortunately, it would become the band’s costliest studio album, resulting in an oddly dreadful sounding rush-released album that would get a full remix two years later. This collection features both mixes, as well as a handful of live recordings from a few months prior to its release.
