Just Put Out: A Huge Grateful Dead CD collection w/Many Rares! We have been working for the last few months on one of the largest CD collections we have ever purchased, and have unearthed a treasure trove of Grateful Dead rarities! This collection, or the Grateful Dead portion of, consists of roughly 100 single discs and smaller sets, and 50 or so larger box sets. Almost all of these CDs and sets are out-of-print. Most are limited editions and numbered, and many are made even rarer by the inclusion of bonus discs that were only available through online subscription to the Dead’s website. Among the most interesting titles are: “30 Trips Around the Sun” which includes one complete show from each of the 30 years from 1966 to 1995. 80 CDs in total housed in a beautiful wooden box with a hardcover book, scroll, and 7” single. $899.99 (We found this early in the collection, so it’s been out in the store, but we’ve lowered the price by $100) “Fillmore West, 1969, The Complete Recordings”, GDR DECD-291, a 10-disc box set with the very rare bonus disc. $499.99 “Formerly the Warlocks”, GDR R2-525760, a 6-CD wooden box set from Hampton, Virginia, 1989, with seal intact. $299.99 “May 1977”, GDR R2-557479, a 14-disc box set, recorded in St. Paul, Chicago, St. Louis, and Tuscaloosa. $299.99 “Winterland, June 1977, The Complete Recordings”, GDR GRA2-601, a 9-CD set recorded in S.F. $299.99 This collection also features around 20 titles each from the sought-after “Dick’s Picks”, “Dave’s Picks” and “Road Trips” series many with the elusive bonus discs. Also featured are around 30 Jerry Garcia titles including four from the “Pure Jerry” series and around 40 other Grateful Dead titles, mostly assorted live recordings. A word of warning, many of these titles are very expensive. We have tried to stay on the low end of the collectable market prices, but some of them are pretty wallet-busting. The conditions are, almost without exception, excellent.
