180-gram, double LP set from Mobile Fidelity. 1971 double live album presents the legendary band's expansion into country rock, traditional rock 'n' roll and roots folk

The Grateful Dead took to the start of the 1970s as a different, albeit equally thrilling and eminently broader-reaching band than the ensemble that revolutionized psychedelia in the late 1960s. Captured live in spring 1971 and featuring not a single repeated song from Live/Dead, the expressive performances on Skull & Roses document this stylistic expansion in unsurpassed fashion. The double-LP constitutes the no-limits sound of an iconic band coming in to its own. From the moment Jerry Garcia's guitar pick touches a string at the outset of the scampering "Bertha," the improvements are palpable: Life-size images, airy vocals, subterranean bass lines, incredibly spacious separation, tube-amp warmth, faithful tones, and balanced dynamics lead a crystal clear path to the music and the Dead's extraordinary collective spark.

Having played through my original long ago, it was a real treat to have this made available again, and treated to the MOFI process. Absoulutely what I was hoping for sonically and always has been my favorite "legitimate" Dead live album. Who are you? Where are you? How are you? Doing fine with this on the turntable!

Mobile Fidelity does it right
