The legendary Bay Area rock superstars Grateful Dead scored with a plethora of wonderful recordings throughout their incredible career that encompassed four decades. Their concerts were of legendary proportions, and during their mammoth breakthrough years of the late sixties, a whole new audience was discovering their magic thanks to their inspiring concerts and musical acumen. As a new touring season began, the Dead celebrated with a very appreciative New York City audience at the Fillmore East. This masterful performance went on to become one of the most revered ever in their long concert history.
Always known for being on top of the audiophile medium, the Dead would record a lot of their shows over the years with state of the art equipment. This particular show was of no exception as longtime Dead member/producer Phil Lesh and producer John Cutler teamed up with the definitive Dead archivist David Lemeiux and compiled the much celebrated Fillmore East 2-11-69.
