The Best of the Grateful Dead Live / 2CD set and double vinyl volumes

The Grateful Dead‘s live archive appears to the be the gift that keeps on giving. Coming in March, is Live, a new two-disc collection of performances selected from the band’s official live albums on Warner Bros. and Arista (plus a few tracks from their many archival live releases).

The collection kicks off with St. Stephen – from 1969’s Live/Dead (the groups first official live album) – and concludes with So Many Roads, taken from the band’s final concert at Chicago’s Soldier Field in July of 1995.

This album was devised to complement the 2015 studio collection The Best of the Grateful Dead. The track listing below indicates which albums the tracks are from, but no less than five are pulled from the highly rated Europe ’72, including Sugar Magnolia and Morning Dew.

This release comes as a two-CD set but such is the length of some of the performances, that it has had to be split into two double vinyl sets. Vol 1: 1969-1977 is issued alongside the full 2CD set, and volume two will be issued later this year.

The Best of the Grateful Dead Live will be issued on 23 March 2018.
