The "original" (on CD) is available from Mickey Hart's website.

The Reference Recordings versions are the only authentic representations of this music.
The later Rykodisc versions were improperly mastered, RR used a customised, non-standard tape recorder so the masters can only be played back correctly on the RR tape machine which Rykodisc did not have access to.
The above is verbatim from a letter from J Tamblyn Henderson, president of Reference Recordings, to The Absolute Sound magazine Issue 59 May/June 1989.
So caveat emptor on the Rykodisc releases.
