A Rock Scully piece of concept art for The Grateful Dead album "Anthem of the Sun," 1968
An oversized color print affixed to poster board featuring the artwork that The Grateful Dead wanted to use for the jacket of their second album, this being the actual piece Scully took to show the executives at the Warner-Reprise record label. Also included is Scully's own copy of the finished album, but showing the purple background none of the band wanted (see footnote below for the backstory). (Please note that some areas of the print are coming unglued from the poster board, but the overall image is not affected.) Songs on album include: 1) That's It for the Other One, 2) New Potato Caboose, 3) Born Cross-Eyed, 4) Alligator, and 5) Caution (Do Not Stop on Tracks).
