In the spring of 1972, the Grateful Dead toured Europe with a new (and modified) Ampex MM1100 tape recorder in tow. The tour, and subsequent LP release, find the Dead at one their creative peaks. In September 2011 Rhino Records will release a massive CD box set containing every note recorded on this 22-show tour —over 70 hours of music on 73 discs, surely one of the most ambitious rock and roll box sets to date. This Workshop will bring together the production and engineering team who have been working on restoring, mixing, and mastering this historic music. Musical excerpts from the project will be presented, and the project workflow and creative challenges will be discussed.
