From the original uploader:
I did not want to edit this too much because these are rought cuts and the flaws are part of the character. Instead, I tried to note them. Only minor editing was performed as described above. Additionally, I did take out a few of the small segments of silence between tracks. I did not make any adjustments to the levels.

Discs were kindly provided by Stu Hanson who comments below:

These copies kick the sh*t out of the versions circulating from those Unsurpassed Masters bootleg CDs. These derive from a 3.75ips reel belonging to Sandy Troy with two additional tracks supplied by a 7.5ips reel belonging to Alan Bershaw.

Sandy’s reel has all the material that has circulated before and its likely that many of the copies out there trace back to this reel. We *think* this material derives from the original 8 track studio sessions (that were abandoned in favor of using the first 16 track, which had just become available in 1969.)

The two cuts from Alan’s reel, Rosemary & Mountains Of The Moon, sound like the same versions recorded for the album, but they seem to be only Garcia’s acoustic guitar and vocal tracks, without all the overdubs. They are definitely not to be confused with the earlier mixes that were originally
released on the 1969 version of the album. These two tracks have not circulated widely. They are both excellent quality and very beautiful!

  1. Thank you very much! Grateful Dead are the best. I know there are no Grateful Dead anymore but there was never and will never be a better band than the Dead. I remember the days when I bought the Aoxomoxoa album. Pure magic! Today there is no magic in music anymore. Sad days today.
    Thank You!
