Background: Released in 1969, Aoxomoxoa was the third album by the Grateful Dead.

The album reached #87 on the U.S. album chart. gave Aoxomoxoa3 1/2 star review:

Nearly synonymous with the term “psychedelic,” the Grateful Dead reached their true peak of psychedelia on their third album, 1969’s Aoxomoxoa. The band had already begun work on an initial recording of the album when they gained access to the new technology of 16-track recording, doubling the number of individual tracks they’d used on their last album. Fueled by acid and keeping pace with the quickly changing hippie subculture of the late ’60s, the band went wild with this newfound sonic freedom. The exploratory jamming and rough-edged blues-rock of their live shows were ornamented with overdubbed choirs, electronic sound effects, and layers of processed vocal harmonies… Aoxomoxoa is a prime example of the Grateful Dead’s difficult relationship with the recording studio, which would take different forms throughout their long, strange trip. Even leaning wholeheartedly into all the available bells and whistles, the band couldn’t quite capture with Aoxomoxoa the depths of cosmic wonder they tapped into organically every time they took the stage. Not without its excellent moments, the album is more a document of late-’60s studio experimentation than a huge step in any sustained path for the band.
