Rare, early live recordings of Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airmen, captured by the Grateful Dead’s legendary soundman Owsley “Bear” Stanley, including songs never-before captured on tape.

Exclusive to Acoustic Sounds, these high resolution digital downloads feature six nights at the Family Dog between February 27 and March 29, 1970. Each night is available a la carte, or as a discounted bundle of all six nights. (The companion CD release, not available as a hi-res download, is drawn from these six shows.) 

“These are the most extensive files there are of our music from this time. There are titles here never heard before [on a release] and seldom played. It is historically important. Spirited.”
 -Commander Cody

  • Exquisite sound quality. Mastered by Jeffrey Norman, and transferred from Owsley Stanley’s original analog vault reels with Plangent Processes.
  • The most extensive collection of Commander Cody’s work from that time period, featuring rare and seldom played songs.
  • Booklet includes original cover art by Chris Shaw and an original, unpublished design by Commander Cody himself.  There are 10 rare, unpublished photos of the band from the relevant time period.  
  • Liner notes by former Grateful Dead archivist, Nicholas G. Meriwether. 
  • The shows span a variety of musical idioms -- country western, rock’n’roll, blues, rockabilly, zydeco, and more.
