Grateful Dead - Aoxomoxoa (50th Anniversary) LP
The Grateful Dead re-release their third studio, an enigmatic classic, "Aoxomoxoa" is messy and murky, mysterious and majestic - a perfect time capsule that is still stubbornly resplendent a half century after it first appeared.
The album introduced favourites like St. Stephen and Mountains On The Moon, as well as China Cat Sunflower - a song that would continue to remain in the band's repertoire. The album features the 1971 remix 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. Compared to the original mix, the well-known 1971 remix highlights subtle and nuanced differences , whilst other parts are glaring and dramatic, and it's incredibly fun to contrast and compare.
