From Important Records website (http://importantrecords.com/imprec/imprec399):
Here it is, Deadheads, the ultimate Dark Star is now on vinyl. Deluxe audiophile pressing cut in Toronto under the watchful ears of John Oswald. Elaborately printed packaging in a heavy duty triple gatefold jacket includes liner notes by musicologist Rob Bowman featuring exclusive interviews with Jerry Garcia, Phil Lesh, and Robert Hunter plus six "time maps" which chart the source concerts of Dark Star.

Music performed by The Grateful Dead (c) Grateful Dead Productions Inc. & Ice Nine Publishing Inc. Taken from over 100 performances of Dark Star recorded between 1968 and 1993. Built, layered and "folded" to produce one large, new re-composed Dark Star.

Original recordings of the Grateful Dead in performance have been processed using Plunderphonic techniques. John Oswald's nearly invisible hand creates the ultimate Dark Star that is even more than the sum of its parts.

Grayfolded is proudly pressed at Quality Record Pressing. Read Michael Fremer's review of a QRP pressing below:

"...all I can say is THIS IS INCREDIBLE!!!!!! The sonics are spectacular and the pressing quality is as good as has ever been pressed in my opinion. The backgrounds are dead, black, silent the way Japanese pressings used to come on JVC 'Supervinyl!' and believe me it doesn't get any better than that, though this may even be richer, darker and blacker." Music = 9/11; Sound = 11/11 – Michael Fremer, MusicAngle.com
