The Grateful Dead re-release their third studio album on 2 CDs. The album features both of its official mixes, the 1969 original mix, and the 1971 remix on disc 1, which was overseen by Phil Lesh and Jerry Garcia. After the success of the two 1970 masterpieces, Warner Bros. requested that Aoxomoxoa (and its predecessor, Anthem Of The Sun) be remixed to make them more accessible. The original 1969 mix had been lost for decades before turning up in the early 2000s, and its included here on CD for the first time, along with its more well-known 1971 remix.

In early 1969, the Dead were playing so well, and were so intent on capturing the majestic power of their live shows, they began recording shows for a live album the results of which were Live/Dead. The first batch of shows they recorded, in January 1969 at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, were the first live concerts in music history to be recorded to 16-track tape. After assessing the material after the shows, the band decided which portions of the recordings to keep for the album (The Eleven and Turn On Your Lovelight), and erased the remaining recordings in order to record the Fillmore West run a month later. Thankfully, studio mixes remain, and it's from these mixes that we've drawn on for Disc 2 of this collection. Tracks include music Anthem Of The Sun, Aoxomoxoa (including the second live versions of Dupree's Diamond Blues and Doin' That Rag, both debuted the previous night) and the rarely-played Clementine. These recordings feature on disc 2 of the release.
