The third installment in our new Road Trips series features smokin' tracks from the summer tour of 1971, including highlights from shows in New Haven and Chicago.

Road Trips Vol. 1 No. 3 includes...

- Two full CD's, lovingly compiled and painstakingly mastered (in HDCD) by Jeffrey Norman

- A booklet boasting scads of great photos and an essay by Dead scholar Blair Jackson

- As always, early orders of Road Trips will also include a special limited-edition Bonus Disc with additional music from the Summer '71 tour. This one features the legendary, consensus-best-ever version of "Hard to Handle" from 8/6/71, as well as a rare recording of a show at Terminal Island Correctional Facility in Santa Ana, California (where sound guru Owsley "Bear" Stanley was incarcerated at the time).

This is a great release for anyone who may be on the fence. I'm still not sure about the sbd version of the ULTIMATE Hard To Handle from 8/6/71 on the bonus disc. It is missing that electricity from the audience. I'll post both versions here later tonight and you can compare.

In the meantime, you can listen to a bunch of the cuts from this release here:
