Grateful Dead with Pig Pen

The Grateful Dead : The Early Years
April 1965 Jan. 26, 1970 (TC's last show)
Note Dave's Picks Vol. 6 has two shows, one with TC and one without. We've placed that release on this summary page.

Much of the sound of the Grateful Dead at different stages of their career is a reflection of the personnel, and the albums (or lack of), released during the period.

Some of the major recordings that are Non-vault and Dick's Picks from this period are noted below.  Some live albums are included as the Grateful Dead would release a live recording in lieu of a studio album that would include a number of previously unreleased songs typically a combination of original and covers.  They are:  

Birth of the Dead
The Grateful Dead
Anthem of the Sun
Aoxomoxa
Live Dead

Grateful Dead personnel:
Jerry Garcia - guitar, vocals
Bob Weir - guitar, vocals
Phil Lesh -- bass, vocals
Billy Kreutzmann - drums
Ron "Pig Pen" Mckernan - keyboards, vocals, harmonica, guitar

Mickey Hart - drums - 9/27/67
Tom Constanten - keyboards - 11/23/68 - 1/26/70

Aretha Franklin's reissued album Live at Fillmore West, on the last page of the liner notes is a photo of her sitting in a chair at the Fillmore. To the left, there are paintings on the wall including one of the Grateful Dead.
