The Other One (Live at Fillmore West, San Francisco, CA 7/2/71) - Grateful Dead /YouTube

The 1971 self-titled album of the Grateful Dead is finally getting a remastered expanded edition for the album’s 50th anniversary.

Also coined by fans as Skull and Roses inspired by its iconic cover, the infamous live album from the band will contain the material recorded in both San Francisco and New York during their sessions in March and April 1971.

The group held the Skull and Roses expanded version preview from Filmore’s July 2 show. The version also includes an unreleased version of their “The Other One” track.

To be released on June 25, the set contains the remastered versions of the album’s 11 original tracks, plus a disc containing the 10 previously unreleased tracks that were done during their final show on July 1971 at Filmore West.

This edition will be digitally available, as well as its double-LP black vinyl, limited black-and-white propeller vinyl, and a two-CD set.
