Between 1967 and 1970, the Grateful Dead recorded five studio albums for Warner Bros. Records that formed the psychedelic canon on which the band's live legend was built.

Originally released in 2010 to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Workingman's Dead and American Beauty, THE WARNER BROS. STUDIO ALBUMS five-LP boxed set contains The Grateful Dead (1967), Workingman's Dead, the original mix of Aoxomoxoa (1969), and American Beauty (1970), plus the original mix for Anthem Of The Sun (1968), available on vinyl for the first time in nearly 40 years.

The set also offers detailed replicas of the original albums housed in a hard-shell case that protects and stores the music with the accompanying 12" x 12" (30cm x 30cm) book including unpublished photos and new liner notes by Blair Jackson. To ensure the highest degree of quality, the albums were pressed on 180-gram vinyl at RTI using lacquers cut from the original analog masters by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.
