Grateful Dead / Long Strange Trip / new documentary soundtrack

Long Strange Trip, the forthcoming documentary on the Grateful Dead will get a brief theatrical release in the USA in May before being made available exclusively to Amazon Prime Video in June. While that sounds really interesting, there’s going to be a soundtrack which will mix studio and live recordings, with several unreleased performances.

The soundtrack is being issued as a two-CD set, but the amazon exclusive expanded three-CD edition will be of interest to most fans.

A two-LP vinyl edition will offer highlights from the two-CD set, but there will be a mammoth six-LP vinyl collection which delivers the entire contents of the three-CD set (limited to 2,500 copies).

The soundtrack has been curated by Grateful Dead archivist David Lemieux and director of the documentary, Amir Bar-Lev.

Lemieux’s enthusiasm is palpable: “All in all, this is unlike any other Grateful Dead release we’ve ever produced – just as the film is unlike any other Grateful Dead audio-visual document ever made. Then again, it’s simply unlike any other music documentary ever made, which is appropriate considering that there’s no band like the Grateful Dead,” he says.

The 3CD edition of Long Strange Trip will be released on 26 May 2017. It’s worth noting that the UK ‘import’ price for this is very competitive. It’s only 58p more than the 2CD set right now! No pre-order links for either vinyl version right now – they will be available “this summer”.
