Here it is, Deadheads, the ultimate "Dark Star" is now on triple vinyl! Deluxe audiophile pressing cut in Toronto under the watchful ears of John Oswald. Heavy-duty triple gatefold jacket includes liner-notes by musicologist Rob Bowman featuring interviews with Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Robert Hunter, plus two "time maps" which chart the source concerts of "Dark Star."

Music performed by the Grateful Dead courtesy of Grateful Dead Productions Inc. and Ice Nine Publishing Inc. Taken from over 100 performances of "Dark Star" recorded between 1968 and 1993. Built, layered and "folded" to produce one large, new re-composed "Dark Star." Original recordings of the Grateful Dead in performance have been processed using Plunderphonic techniques.

"The Grateful Dead's song "Dark Star" was something of a holy grail for Deadheads attending either their first or 200th show...Which makes a new vinyl pressing of the project something to be excited about. The new three-LP re-release by Important Records rescues this sonic masterpiece, in which every member of every version of the band plays off one another in what amounts to the ultimate jam by the band that practically invented the concept." - NPR

"Grayfolded is literally a hundred or so great nights rolled into one extraordinary extended high. Gorgeous sonic origami." - Rolling Stone

"Rightly acclaimed as the ultimate 'Dark Star,' the one you had always hoped the Dead would one day get around to playing." - London Daily Telegraph

"An extended time-warped psychedelic jam that is meticulously hallucinatory." - New York Times
