I already owned all of the cd's from the Dead's folk rock era, so I decided to get one from their psychedelic early era. So I browsed around an found one of theirs called Aoxomoxoa(!). When I put it in my stereo, St. Stephen was the first to come out and I love it right away. St. Stephen, Dupree's Diamond Blues, Doin' that Rag and Cosmic Charlie are timeless classics. The controversial song, What's Become of the Baby, in which Jerry sings with the wierd voice thing for over 8 minutes is O.K. Get it, it's a psychedelic classic!!

though "blues for allah" is probably the most accurate studio representation of what the dead truly were and are, "aoxomoxoa" is still my favorite dead record. it was recorded right when the band was making the natural transistion from bluesy psychedelic music and into a more folkish country sound. you can really hear the two musical realms butt heads. even the simple folk songs like "rosemary" and "mountains of the moon" have a real ambient psychedelic mood to them. however, "what's become of the baby" is definitely the oddest track on the album and is almost too spooky to listen to. dead naysayers who claim that the band wasn't dark and were only into singing about good times have obviously never heard this track. the album also includes the future concert staples "china cat sunflower" and "st. stephen," but a really good track that the band all but abondanded not too long after the record's release is "doin' that rag." it's got a lot of great effects and time changes and really sounds like the musical equivalent to going insane. this record really captures a great transistional period in the band's history and will grow on you immensely after repeated listenings. the remastered version also has some great studio jams, including the only studio recording of the phenomenal live favorite "the eleven." one more great reason to buy this thing immediately

Though this studio album, of course, fails to capture the Dead at their finest, it comes close.
Take a minute to listen to these tunes, and you will remember where you would be if you weren't here.
'St. Stephen', 'Doin' That Rag', and 'China Cat' will all take you back to that time when everything was a little strange and at the same time seemed to make a little more sense.
Remember sitting on the lawn with a few close friends, watching the sun come up, with the sounds of the Dead coming from somewhere...I know I do.

The Grateful Dead's third studio album "Aoxomoxoa" serves as a bridging gap between the band's psychedelic experiments and the harmony-laced folk-rock they would adopt a few years later. The album still remains a favorite amongst Deadheads and includes concert staples such as "Saint Stephen", "China Cat Sunflower" and "Cosmic Charlie". There are also some fun sing-along moments such as the memorable "Dupree's Diamond Blues" and "Doin' That Rag". "Rosemary" and "Mountains of the Moon" are beautiful acoustic pieces that fuse folk and baroque influences into the mix. Then, there's the infamous "What's Become Of The Baby" which is nothing but 8-minutes worth of Jerry Garcia chanting with vast amounts of echo plastered on his voice. Depending on who you talk to, this track is either the Dead's finest studio moment or their absolute worst. Either way, the track certainly is different.
The Rhino/Warner remaster includes four additional tracks which brings this album to more than double of its original length. The first three bonus tracks are extended instrumental jams recorded live in the studio. Like always, the band's musicianship and ability to play off each other comes through effortlessly in these jams. There is a definite jazz-fusion feel to these improvisations. "The Eleven Jam" is particularly striking with it's use of odd time signatures (mostly 11/8). The bonus material closes with a rare live recording of "Cosmic Charlie" which is a bit raw and rough but solid.
Since it's initial release 35 years ago "Aoxomoxoa" has become an instant Dead classic.

This is the Grateful Dead's third album. It has been remastered and has as much bonus material as orginal material.
Like the first two Dead albums, this is Aoxomoxoa is a mixture of standard rock material and some really wierd stuff. It's got some very good songs, such as St. Stephen and China Cat Sunflower. However, I prefer the live versions of these songs. The early studio versions always seem tinny, while the live versions seem to have much more depth. Then it has the really bad "What's Become of Baby" where Jerry Garcia just drones on through an echo chamber for 8 minutes. It is hard to get through.
What is really nice is the bonus material. It it live material and mostly instrumentals. They are jams that were pulled out of the middle of some songs. The music is great. There are styles that I have never heard the band play before. It is as good or better than the original material on the album.
Rhino Records (bought about by Warner Brothers) has remasters all of the Dead's Warner Brother releases. They included nice packaging with extensive liner notes. They used up every second of the CD with bonus material, so they are all just under 80 minutes long. Some of the bonus material is not very good on some of the CD's, but on Aoxomoxoa, it is wonderful. It takes a 3 star CD up to 4 stars.
