Dead Set

Dead Set

[ded set for 1, 2; ded set for 3]

Dead Set is a live album by the Grateful Dead. It was released in August 1981 on Arista.

The album contains live material recorded between September and October 1980 in a variety of venues. Most CD pressings omitted the track "Space" so the entire album could fit on one CD. However, the album was later rereleased as part of the Beyond Description boxset, as well as an individual CD in 2004 and 2006, respectively. Both of these recordings included "Space". The 2006 release included a bonus CD of live material, also.

Reckoning is essentially the acoustic brother of Dead Set; both of the albums come from the same recorded concerts. It was originally intended for both of the albums to be one double record set, but due to the lengthiness of many of the Grateful Dead's electric tunes, it was decided to separately release the material.
