Grateful Dead Plans Special Summer Vinyl Release

The Grateful Dead will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its classic album Anthem of the Sun, with a special release offered  on CD and vinyl in July.

The CD edition includes three discs: a remaster of the original album’s mix, a remastered version of a more well-known 1971 mix, and a bonus disc of the Dead’s October 22, 1967 show at Winterland, which was its first-ever with drummer Mickey Hart.

The vinyl version is a limited edition picture disc, with only 10,000 copies distributed.

Both CD and vinyl arrive in stores and digital outlets on July 13 — five days before the album’s July 18th anniversary.
