Not only does the Grateful Dead have one of the greatest discographies known to mankind, but also one of the most eye-catching collections of artwork spanning across decades. These awesome rainbow-colored dancing bears are one of the greatest designs from the Grateful Dead vaults, originally included on the back album art of the History of the Grateful Dead, Volume One(Bear’s Choice) album.
The bears are actually a reference to legendary sound engineer Owsley“Bear” Stanley, who mixed and recorded the album. Stanley worked with a variety of artists involved in the counterculture movement, most-known for his extensive work with the Grateful Dead and developing their iconic Wall of Sound live speaker system. The spiraling bears on top of this swirling rainbow tie-dye tee make for a one-of-a-kind piece of Grateful Dead memorabilia, so get your piece of history today!
