The 1969 album by the Grateful Dead was one of the first rock albums to be
recorded using 16-track technology. The title is a meaningless palindrome
usually pronounced 'ox-oh-mox-oh-ah'.
Aoxomoxoa was released in 1969 and features one of Rick Griffin's finest
Grateful Dead album covers, having originated as a poster for the Dead at the
Avalon Ballroom in January 1969. Apparently, the band liked the poster so much
they asked Griffin to rework it for the cover of their third album, which was
their first with Tom Constanten as an official band-member. Constanten was
instrumental in creating unique sounds from the keyboards utilizing such common
items as combs, Dutch dimes, and a gyroscope to alter the sound of the keyboard.
"Aoxomoxoa is the work of the magical band. Can you hear this music and not
see them before your eyes? The music is so much the reality of their physical
and spiritual bodies that seeing them is the wonder of seeing music... Elemental
and celebratory, they don't need to fool you because they aren't fooling
themselves. No other music sustains a life style so delicate and loving and
lifelike." - Rolling Stone, 1969
