Anthem of the Sun
This is the 50th anniversary version of the unique 1971 mix of this iconic album. 

The Grateful Dead's second studio album, Anthem Of the Sun, was released in 1968 and was their first with drummer Mickey Hart. The album features the selection "Alligator" and the four-part suite "That's It For The Other One". The mix of the album combines multiple studio and live recordings of each song. The result is an experimental amalgam that is neither a studio album nor a live album, but both at the same time (though it is usually classified as a studio album).
Phil Lesh supervised a remixed version of Anthem Of The Sun in 1971. The more well-known remix particularly differs from the original in terms of segues, use of live recordings and stereo imaging. For example, the original mix starts with vocals and organ panned wide, while the remix has them centered; Bob Weir's studio vocal on the first track is doubled with a live recording on the original mix and solo on the remix. "Born Cross-Eyed" ends with a power chord in the key of E on the remix, whereas the original mix has an earlier fade-out.
