Great box set to start a Grateful Dead collection... Together with the three classic studio albums, the live album covering the same material offers a more familiar perspective on their music and truly complements the introduction. Like others had mentioned, the inner sleeves need to be thrown out and the records must be washed before playing. Otherwise, the mastering and the pressings are top notch!

My biggest complaint about this set is that the packaging seems to have been manufactured with regular LPs in mind (i.e. 120g, not 180g). The polylined inner sleeves barely fit into the record jackets, because the jackets are so tight, and sometimes the inner sleeves stick out of the jacket a little bit. The entire box bulges slightly in the middle, too, because of the thickness of the vinyl.

Otherwise, the albums are quiet and sound good. The copy I saw had some minor edge warps on the vinyl, but I assume that isn't a problem on every copy.

Anyone who has this needs to replace the inner sleeves. The plastic of the inner sleeve reacts to the vinyl and leaves marring and NOISE on play back. This is a known problem with some RTI inner sleeves. Within two years this set will be almost unplayable, if you do not change the inner sleeve.

My copy was all made/printed in the USA by RTI with thick covers on each disc. The Steal Your Face is not closed in the center and the vinyl LPs can shift.

Can anyone confirm or put some more light on this set? discogs states USA/Canada.
I bought recently at this box set at a quite fair price. Box set states printed in EU and only has golden sticker (not RTI pressing or RSD) From my point of view, there is a little mess with each album that makes it not as good as the previous one (WB studio albums)

- Wake Of The Flood, with a sturdy cover printed in USA (as the ones from the first period box set by Rhino) but vinyl is made in EU. White plain with plastic inner sleeve.
- From The Mars Hotel: vinyl and cover (thin shitty cover as Europe usually makes) Authentic stamped on cover. Same white plain with plastic inner sleeve.
- Blues For Allah: sturdy cover made in usa. Vinyl, as the rest, made in UE with same caracteristics. Lyrics insert sheet.
- Steal Your Face (2 LPs): all EU made. Double folder. Thin covers...
Booklet included and well, sound, nothing to say, really good.

All versions are the same? Can anyone confirm? Thanks in advance.

Each LP sounds equally impressive as the next. Some of the quietest records in this set too. Well worth the buy.
