Fillmore West 1969: The Complete Recordings is a limited edition box set (10,000 copies), released in November 2005, featuring four complete concerts by the Grateful Dead on 10 CDs. These concerts, performed on four consecutive nights from February 27 through March 2, 1969, were the basis for Live/Dead (rock's first 16 track live album).[4][5]

Released separately was Fillmore West 1969, a three-disc distillation that included highlights of the four nights that did not appear on Live/Dead (with the exception of "Feedback" and the full-length version of "And We Bid You Good Night", which had appeared in truncated form on Live/Dead).
