“It is said that, if you lined up all those who have ever been to a Grateful Dead concert head-to-toe, the line would stretch around the moon, and about halfway back. And nobody would complain!”

What is the “Mouth of the Beast”?
If you have ever listened to live recordings you will probably have noticed that not all recordings have the same quality. It all depends on the gear used, the location of the mics and of course the band’s groove. Back behind the soundboard, the taper section was not the ideal location for recording. And those crisp soundboard tapes, they leave out the full experience of the show. The missing sound is the dynamics of being up close to the stage while the band performed. Up front, dead center in the first fifteen rows is where “the sound” was ideal. The tapers knew this was the spot. They braved security and the bands’ roadies to make these tapes. This project has been started to preserve, archive and distribute these rare recordings. This project is for the fans — who want to experience recordings made in the “Mouth of the Beast”. We refer to this project as MOTB.
