The Golden Road 1965-1973

This Rhino box set consists of all the early Grateful Dead albums (remastered, and with bonus tracks) plus two CDs of very early material. The individual remastered albums have now also been released separately (with bonus tracks etc), and have effectively superseded the original albums.

I've listed the previously unreleased tracks here, but not repeated the tracks on the original albums.

Advance orders received a bonus recording of the Grateful Dead Documentary
