The Story Of The Grateful Dead VMP Boxed Set

Grateful Dead
The Story Of The Grateful Dead VMP Boxed Set

The story of the Grateful Dead told through eight albums / 14 LPs (four classic studio & four legendary live albums), curated by VMP.


8 Essential Grateful Dead Albums


Take a trip through four studio and four live albums that transport the listener across the band's storied career. The lacquers were cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA. This set is pressed on high quality 180g vinyl in a kaleidoscope of hues with heavyweight tip-on jackets.


Star-studded Liner Notes Booklet


Features essays by contemporary musical figures on the eight albums in the set and the impact on their lives and musical approaches. Printed on thick cover matte stock, this deluxe 12x12" booklet also features archival and rare photos and ephemera courtesy of iconic photographers from the eras.


Premium Commemorative Box


This heavyweight two-piece slip and slash box features original design by Jeremy Dean, whose modern approach with the band's iconic imagery in his work is widely sought after and repped by Dead fans. Limited to 7500.


Top-Tier Audio Mastering


All eight titles in this VMP Anthology had lacquers cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA. All titles were cut 'AAA' from the original analog tapes, with the exception of Without a Net coming from the original master digital audio. Pressed at QRP on high quality 180g colored vinyl.


Take a journey through the liner notes. The influence goes far & wide.
