The Grateful Dead section is for Garcia-era Dead material, 1965-1995. The post Jerry lineups, The Other Ones and The Dead (2/2003+), have their own sources sections here.


Please review the original policy of the Grateful Dead regarding the circulation of their music online. GDP has made additional statements- updated 2005 as well. 2005 update: Please note that given the commercial release of many shows, some of the older SBD items listed here may no longer be tradable. They will remain listed for reference purposes. AUDs are still tradable.
