    Back in 1969, ‘live’ albums were not nearly as common as they are today. This album represents the first live product ever released by the Grateful Dead, and reactions varied from adulation to consternation.

    Almost fifty years later, responses remain divided along extremes, with lifelong fans praising Live/Dead as one of the most astonishing live albums ever recorded, while others scratch their heads or fall asleep. In and of itself, the breadth of opinion is enough to ensure the classic status of this album, as its validity will likely be debated for yet another half-century (which means that those who love it are probably right).

    Featured tracks include;

    Turn On Your Love Light

    Death Don’t Have No Mercy
