Limited Edition 12-CD set highlights five unreleased concerts

The Grateful Dead have announced details of a new box set.

July 1978: The Complete Recordings is a limited Edition 12-CD boxed set that highlights five unreleased concerts.

It will be released by Rhino on May 13 alongside a three-CD set Of the band’s July 8, 1978 Red Rocks Concert, which is also available in The Complete Recordings.

“As an archivist and Dead Head, this boxed set is about as exciting as it gets,” says Grateful Dead archivist and boxed set producer David Lemieux. “Musically, it features five exhilarating, dynamic nights in the summer of 1978. The sound quality is impeccable, as would be expected from Betty Cantor-Jackson’s always-pristine recordings. The rarity of the first three nights, and the hall-of-fame pedigree of the last two, makes this one of the most astonishing Grateful Dead releases ever. Collaborating with the owners of these tapes, we are very pleased to see these important historical documents returned home and now shared with the world.”

The set is available now for pre-order exclusively at Dead.net.
