The Grateful Dead: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition presents the original 1967 album on Disc 1 and an unreleased concert from July 29th, 1966 in Vancouver, Canada on Disc 2.

The second disc has been mastered by Jeffrey Norman. Exact packaging has not been revealed, but the reissue will feature new liner notes by Jesse Jarnow. Also being released on the same day is 12-inch picture disc LP limited to 10,000 copies featuring the remastered version of the original album.
