A lesson in technology for the younger Enthusiasts: the large, flat boxes up top are laserdiscs, which is how high-quality recordings were captured back in the 70’s. Occasionally, when tapers were broke, they would record a Dead show over a disc from the Criterion Collection.

On the bottom are cassette tapes, which were like iPods that only played one album, and also required another iPod to work.
