On vinyl for the first time, Dick’s Picks Volume 5 marks two important firsts for the preeminent live album series from The Grateful Dead. It is the first Dick’s Picks to contain a complete Dead show in its entirety, and the first to feature Brent Mydland on keyboards. The three-hour concert is a remarkable snapshot of the Dead’s live output at the end of their most prolific decade. Originally released in May 1996 on CD, Volume 5 is now the latest in Brookvale Records’ critically-acclaimed Dick’s Picks Vinyl Series.
This stunning 5-LP set is pressed on 180 gram audiophile-grade black vinyl and limited to only 1500 copies worldwide. Each 12″ x 12″ box set is individually hand-numbered and features artwork, packaging, and mastering all approved by the band. As was the case with the two previous volumes, Volume 5 has been painstakingly remastered from the original tapes by longtime Bay-area engineer Jeffrey Norman. Whether you’re a diehard Deadhead or just a casual listener, we think you’ll agree this classic recording has absolutely never sounded better.
