Dead 16 tracks

The Dead have released a cleaned up and stitched-together vault recording of shows performed at the Fillmore in 69. No way I can afford one, seeing as they’re selling on Ebay for $700 (they did a run of 10,000 for $80 each; not enough apparently; there’s still life in the dead…).

What’s cool about these shows is that the Dead were the first to record live on a brand-new 16 track machine. 1969, let’s see, that’s 34 years ago. Better fidelity then than we get today from mp3… Sigh.
