"First time ever on vinyl. Newly remastered by Joe Gastwirt. Lacquers cut by Kevin Gray. Four LPs housed in a gatefold Stoughton 'tip-on' jacket. Recorded live at the Capitol Theatre (Port Chester, NY) in 1971, this is the worldwide vinyl debut release of this seminal show featuring the five-piece line-up of Pigpen, Garcia, Weir, Lesh, and Kruetzmann (Mickey Hart had temporarily left the band at that point), freshly remastered in 2014 by Joe Gastwirt for your pleasure. 20 classic songs on eight sides of wax, this show has previously only been available on CD; this is the first ever vinyl LP release! The band played six shows over the course of seven nights at the Capitol Theatre in February of 1971, and this was the second of that run, recorded on the 19th. Their previous two studio albums had been their landmark recordings of Workingman's Dead and American Beauty, and while songs from those albums were certainly featured, the Dead debuted seven brand new songs on this night -- all of which went on to become Dead 'standards' including 'Playing in the Band,' 'Greatest Story Ever Told,' and two absolute classics: 'Bird Song' and 'Deal.' Essential Dead."
