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).

A bonus disc released with the set includes selections from two additional Fillmore West shows, June 8 1969 and February 2, 1970. It also includes a blistering 30-minute version of "Caution (Do Not Step On the Tracks)" that was recorded during one of the band's June 1968 shows at the Carousel Ballroom, which was the name of the Fillmore West before Bill Graham took it over later that year. Many of the band's recordings from 1968 have been lost and what remains is often incorrectly labeled.[6]
