180g LP Mastered From Original Analog Masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios and Pressed at RTI!

Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: The Grateful Dead Rated 1st!

The Grateful Dead's second studio album, Anthem Of the Sun, was released in 1968 and was their first with drummer Mickey Hart.  In 2012, the album was ranked number 288 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. The album features the selection "Alligator" and the four-part suite "That's It For the Other One".

Between 1967 and 1970, the Grateful Dead recorded five studio albums for Warner Bros. Those records formed the psychedelic canon on which the band’s live legend was built. The five albums were pressed on premium 180g vinyl at RTI and packaged as a Deluxe 5LP Box Set. This 180g LP is the same as the pressing that was included in that set.

Reviews of the 5LP Box Set:
"... Each LP's cover has been meticulously reproduced, the 180-gram vinyl pressed at RTI from freshly-cut lacquers mastered from the original analog tapes by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Studios..." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, January 2011

"...when it comes to focus, overall clarity, balance, dynamic punch, and bottom-end weight, which are hallmarks of [these] Rhino's reissues. As to Phil Lesh's marvelous and important bass playing - the clarity of line, and his round, almost creamy tone - is one of the great joys of this new set. These new LPs knock the others, including the CD box, right off my shelf." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, January 2011

To ensure the highest degree of quality, this album was pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI using lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. The album features detailed replica of the original album packaging.

"...the studio with its production work dissolves into live performance, the carefully crafted is thrown together with the tossed off, and the results are spliced together. The end product is one of the finest albums to come out of San Francisco... Anthem Of The Sun is an extraordinary event." - Jim Miller, Rolling Stone, 1968
