Product Description:

Recorded live at the Fillmore East, New York, New York in April 25-29, 1971. Includes liner notes by Blair Jackson.
All tracks have been digitally remastered using HDCD technology.
Distilled from a weeklong series of concerts celebrating the shuttering of Bill Graham's counter-cultural mecca, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN showcases the original five-piece Grateful Dead operating at pretty much peak form. Former keyboardist and John Cage fan Tom Constanten, who lent the group considerable avant-cachet on ANTHEM OF THE SUN and AOXOMOXOA, guests here on a few songs, including wonderfully lysergic versions of "Dark Star" and "St. Stephen."
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN is also a document of the band in transition to a more country and roots rock orientation; it's doubtful, for example, that they would have played songs like Marty Robbins' "El Paso" or (especially) Merle Haggard's "Sing Me Back Home" in the days of the Acid Tests. In any case, as always with the Dead, there are moments of complete musical transcendence (as well as, to be honest, moments where they're just sort of noodling around), but this set is worth having for both musical and historical reasons.
