There are few that equal the once legendary live draw of the Grateful Dead. With the original lineup in motion, they were difficult to beat in their hours-long jams. Even today, the interest in collectable live music from The Dead is a scene all by itself. Their archives are rich with previously unreleased (officially) live sessions.

On October 1, Grateful Dead Productions via Warner Bros Music will release a new live set, this one from a show at the Fox Theater in St. Louis on December 10, 1971. The show is amply available on bootlegs the internet over, but this release is a nicely packaged set that will be issued on 3CD and 5LP sets. The tapes for this issue has been worked on via Plangent Processes, a process that adds life to projects and has been used on studio releases including Springsteen’s Darkness On The Edge Of Town remaster.

The 5LP package will be pressed onto 180g-weight vinyl.

  1. Did anyone else notice in the full box set that the last two discs are not in show order?
