Fillmore West 1969 is a three-CD album composed of selections from four concerts by the Grateful Dead. 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, released in November 1969). In addition to the three-disc set, the entire run of four nights was released as The Complete Fillmore West 1969, a 10 compact disc set that was limited to 10,000 copies.[2]

Fillmore West 1969 includes 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).
