Quite possibly the best pressing along with the first CSM issues (I have not compared to the various Mofi reissues but this beats the Rhino reissue hands down). Mastered at Artisan, the sound quality is amazing. Deep bass, tonal balance, excellent mid-range and sweet highs. Absolutely essential classic Dead!

Absolutely stunning! Clear, dynamic and open highly recommended quintessential Dead. Would love to compare to the newer pressings.
