Grateful Dead Share Live ‘Ship Of Fools’ From Deluxe Edition Of ‘From The Mars Hotel’

The Grateful Dead recently released a live recording of “Ship Of Fools” recorded at the University of Nevada in May 1974.

The song is set to feature on From The Mars Hotel (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition), which is due out on June 21st.

“Debuting at Winterland in San Francisco on February 22, 1974, less than three months before the Reno show, ‘Ship Of Fools’ was one [of Jerry Garcia’s] two mellower-tempo’d songs on Mars Hotel along with ‘China Doll,'” Dead Legacy manager and audio archivist David Lemieux writes. “It was a mainstay of Grateful Dead setlists from its debut right through 1995, although it was only played a half dozen times in 1994 and 1995 combined.”

“Ship of Fools (Live at University of Nevada 5/12/74)” is available now via digital outlets.

From The Mars Hotel (50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition) includes a remastered version of the album, along with previously unreleased demos and the University of Nevada concert.

The deluxe album will be out as a three-CD and digital set. The remastered version of the album will also be released as a single black vinyl; a limited-edition neon pink vinyl; a limited-edition “Ugly Rumors” custom vinyl, sold exclusively on Dead.net; and a specially designed zoetrope picture disc.
