Grateful Dead – “Two From The Vault” Out Now!

dead2

Following on the heels of last year’s vinyl LP release of One From The Vault comes the next in the trilogy of From The Vault releases by the Grateful Dead. These releases are distinguished from the more abundant Dick’s Picks series in that Dick’s Picks are “direct from the soundboard” recordings, while the From The Vault series was professionally recorded on multi-track tape and then mixed down (decades) later for release.

Recorded live at the Shrine Auditorium (Los Angeles) in 1968, this is the worldwide vinyl debut release of this legendary show featuring the 6 piece line-up of Pigpen, Garcia, Weir, Lesh, Kruetzmann, & Hart, freshly remastered in 2014 by Joe Gastwirt for maximum mind expansion. 9 dynamic songs, 5 of which weigh in around the 15-minute mark, while 3 others touch down close to 10 minutes: this is the Dead at their most improvisational while still retaining the Blues-Rock roots of the “Pigpen” years.
