This is the original mix of Aoxomoxoa, which was released commercially between June 1969 and late 1971.
In September, 1971, Jerry Garcia did a major remix of the entire album, eliminating a considerable amount
of the backing material and trimming the beginning and end of a few songs. The LPs, cassettes, and CDs
available commercially since that time contain the remix. There appear to be no plans to commercially release
this original mix, so it is being made available to the broader community.
To sustain the ethical integrity of this process, please do not download these files unless you are already in
possession of a commercial release of Aoxomoxoa and would like to compare it with the original mix.
The LP copy from which this was derived is in VG condition, and the analog equipment used to extract the
sound from the grooves is near state of the art. There is some minor surface noise audible in the quietest passages,
but not obtrusive even then, and almost no tracking distortion.
