Not so very long ago, Grateful Dead fans were made more than a little bit giddy by the release of Workingman's Dead: The Angel's Share, a collection of previously-unreleased from the sessions that resulted in the Dead’s fourth studio album.

Now, the time has come to get giddy again: to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the band’s landmark LP, American Beauty, Rhino is releasing The Angel's Share for that album as well.

Thanks to the discovery of dozens of recently-discovered 16-track reels, fans will have a chance to check out more than two hours of previously-unreleased studio outtakes, demos, and alternate mixes of this classic album, including demos for all but one of the songs. Sorry, “Box of Rain” fans, you’re out of luck, but if it’s any consolation, you do get the demo for “To Lay Me Down,” which later found its way onto Jerry Garcia’s solo debut, Garcia. In addition, there are multiple outtakes for several of the album tracks.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
