You only thought you knew everything there is to know about the Dead. The Grateful Dead Scrapbook, helmed by veteran rock writer Ben-Fong Torres, takes you on a guided tour through the Grateful Dead’s entire musical career. The beautifully designed 64-page hardcover album includes never-before-published photos, removable reproductions and interactive features like backstage passes, fold-out psychedelic posters, the full program from the Dead’s unprecedented Egyptian concerts, a letter of “special” thanks from Hugh Hefner, an early bumper sticker, a hand-drawn record of every set list the band played for a year, and more."
Presented in a limited-edition embossed slipcase, each Deluxe Edition scrapbook is individually numbered (see below for details) and includes an original concert ticket, CD and DVD. The CD offers never-before-heard interviews with Jerry Garcia conducted by David Gans, the legendary host of Grateful Dead Radio Hour. The 95-minute DVD contains the official music video for “Hell In A Bucket,” a short film about the band by Robert Nelson recorded in 1968, plus five live clips filmed between 1972 and 1989. The rare video spotlights several freewheeling jams, including a 1989 East Rutherford, N.J. performance that intertwines “Shakedown Street,” “Jack Straw” and “West L.A. Fadeaway.”
The numbered certificate of authenticity, embossed slipcase, vintage concert ticket, and unreleased DVD are exclusive to Dead.net, so the only place to get the full package is right here. Both the certificate of authenticity and the vintage concert ticket are found in the envelope just inside the front cover.
