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

Here it is, Deadheads, the ultimate "Dark Star" is now on vinyl. Deluxe audiophile pressing cut in Toronto under the watchful ears of John Oswald. Heavy-duty triple gatefold jacket includes liner-notes by musicologist Rob Bowman and interviews with Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Robert Hunter, plus six "time maps" which chart the source concerts of "Dark Star." Music performed by The Grateful Dead (c) Grateful Dead Productions Inc. & Ice Nine Publishing Inc.

Taken from over 100 performances of "Dark Star" recorded between 1968 and 1993, original recordings of the Grateful Dead in performance have been processed using Plunderphonic techniques - built, layered and "folded" to produce one large, new re-composed "Dark Star."

Plunderphonics is a term coined by composer John Oswald in 1985 in his essay Plunderphonics, or Audio Piracy as a Compositional Prerogative. It has since been applied to any music made by taking one or more existing audio recordings and altering them in some way to make a new composition. Plunderphonics can be considered a form of sound collage.

"Grayfolded is literally a hundred or so great nights rolled into one extraordinary extended high. Gorgeous sonic origami." - Rolling Stone

"An extended time-warped psychedelic jam that is meticulously hallucinatory." - New York Times

"Rightly acclaimed as the ultimate 'Dark Star,' the one you had always hoped the Dead would one day get around to playing." - London Daily Telegraph

"Even casual Dead fans will be floored by this astonishing new project. Absolutely brilliant." -Toronto Sun
