Beyond Description (1973–1989)

Beyond Description is the second twelve-CD boxed set retrospect of the Grateful Dead's studio and live albums. It covers their time with Grateful Dead Records and Arista Records from 1973 to 1989.

This compilation includes expanded and remastered versions of all the albums during the brief period with their own label (except for Steal Your Face), and during their time on contract with Arista Records (except for the last two live albums). Also included are numerous studio outtakes and live tracks. The albums included are Wake of the Flood, From the Mars Hotel, Blues for Allah, Terrapin Station, Shakedown Street, Go to Heaven, In the Dark and Built to Last as well as the two live albums Reckoning and Dead Set, both expanded to a 2 CD set. Promotional posters at the time advertised this set as "The Long-Anticipated Companion to The Golden Road (1965-1973) Boxed Set".

Famous quotes containing the word description:

    Why does philosophy use concepts and why does faith use symbols if both try to express the same ultimate? The answer, of course, is that the relation to the ultimate is not the same in each case. The philosophical relation is in principle a detached description of the basic structure in which the ultimate manifests itself. The relation of faith is in principle an involved expression of concern about the meaning of the ultimate for the faithful.
    Paul Tillich (1886–1965)
