This is the 50th anniversary collector’s edition of the Grateful Dead’s legendary third studio album. An enigmatic classic, Aoxomoxoa is messy and murky, mysterious and majestic – a perfect time capsule that is still stubbornly resplendent a half century after it first appeared.

Aoxomoxoa was one of the first rock albums to be recorded using 16-track technology, fans and critics alike consider this era to be the band’s experimental apex. Reviewing the album in 1969, Rolling Stone magazine’s Adele Novelli called it ‘the work of the magical band. Can you hear this music and not see them before your eyes? The music is so much the reality of their physical and spiritual bodies that seeing them is the wonder of seeing music.’ Years later, AllMusic’s Fred Thomas said ‘the Grateful Dead reached their true peak of psychedelia’ with the album, embellishing ‘the exploratory jamming and rough-edged blues-rock of their live shows’ with ‘overdubbed choirs, electronic sound effects, and layers of processed vocal harmonies.’

Aoxomoxoa was certified gold by the RIAA on May 13, 1997. In 1991 Rolling Stone selected Aoxomoxoa as having the eighth best album cover of all time. It was voted No. 674 in the third edition of Colin Larkin’s All Time Top 1000 Albums (2000).
