Long Strange Trip Soundtrack CD
The LONG STRANGE TRIP MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK spans the band’s career and captures many of their greatest studio recordings alongside several of their most dynamic performances.

Sounds pretty impressive nestled amidst the other selections. I have the boxed set and have been listening to the track since the box was pre-sale and the teaser mp3 was released. Still, the sound, the energy, the sheer majesty of it makes it a worthy entry, though so recently released in every format except mono 8 track.
The 1907 DS is a bit underwhelming, though I have just one listen in. It is not the blistering, angular, psychedelic version, nor the more jewel like arabesque of the 72 style versions. Perhaps some more listens will reveal the counterpoint surrealism of the underlying metaphor
it's ok...obviously not a "new release". DS and CC Rider is a good listen. 80's and 90s stuff out of context, meehhh...packaging ok, liner notes entertaining.
get link in may 2017 grateful dead bulletin
then it must be from the upcoming complete 1969 filmore west box all music reissue maybe
1st time checking soundtrack list and surprised to see a lot of official releases included here.
Only a few tracks are unreleased , and really surprised to see a performance from 7.5.81 getting included on the soundtrack 3rd / bonus disc !!!!
"Stella Blue" !!!!!
Now to find the time to listen.....
My latest piece with reviews etc
Okay, one more thing, 2/14/70's Dark Star is a beaut!
That's it, that's all I wanted to say... :)
Does anyone know if this is going to be released on LP?
Does anyone know if this new Long Strange Trip doc will be coming to DVD? I still haven't even seen the Weir doc because I refuse to subscribe to Netflix. Of course it isn't playing anywhere within 200 miles of here.
How do you delete comments?
I like to have two different collections of music: digital stuff for when I'm out and about and physical stuff for when I'm at home. When I'm at home, give me vinyl and lots of it. But out and about? Give me digital and not a whole lot to sift through. My big thing lately is making playlists, and that 3-disc Amazon exclusive version looks to be right up my alley. I lost a bunch of my previous 'Dead album purchases from my Amazon music collection, so this will fill in some of those gaps rather nicely.
But yeah, a release like this is going to tick off completists. It's annoying to have more than one copy of the same song over a number of different releases. I can feel both sides of the argument.
"We were there with nothing to do: France, a 16-track recording studio upstairs, all our gear, ready to play, and nothing to do. So, we decided to play at the chateau itself, out in the back, in the grass, with a swimming pool, just play into the hills. We didn’t even play to hippies, we played to a handful of townspeople in Auvers. We played and the people came — the chief of police, the fire department, just everybody. It was an event and everybody just had a hell of a time — got drunk, fell in the pool. It was great."
There was a film crew at Chateau d’Herouville, unless I am misremembering. So we are likely to actually see this performance of China>Rider in the movie, right?
1971. A chateau -- in a national park -- an hour north of Paris. The Grateful goddamn Dead.
I'm very there.
Also, there is no way for me to pass on this soundtrack with another 2/70 Dark Star. Absolutely not.
Not sure where you were going with that but I think of the Motorhead song. Lemmy, too, was finally killed - by death.
Different music for different moods. I listen to the Dead at home and in the car 90% of the time these days. But I'll jam some Motorhead now and again. Usually while driving fast.
I'm seeing Metallica the same week as two Dead & Co. shows this June. Different experiences.
God bless music.
Thanks for this identification of unreleased material on the new soundtrack album. Any collection that has an hours worth of new material, which includes a 20-30 minute Dark Star has to be worth investigating. Maybe more desirable than some 3 cd sets of complete shows featuring lesser material...
First off, this is not a release from the Dead. It is a soundtrack to a movie that someone made. You can't hold the selections up to te same standard. Expet iconic selections. Some studio stuff.
Second, there is some legit new stuff here. 2/14/70 Dark Star. That '71 China>Rider is new. While the Fantasy/Jude from Sullivan '89 was seen on a movie night, there was not a CD release. The '81 Stella is new. As is the '94 Days. That's 7 songs pushing an hour of music that is unreleased. Technically, the Ithaca stuff was too at the time they were making the movie.
If you think there is too much rehash for you, don't purchase it. Still, the idea that there isn't new stuff there does not hold water. There is. (3 CD version has more, yes).
Technically, the first Dark Star was played at the Carousel Saloon on February 14, 1868, in honor of Butch Casady.
killed by death.
that's why the variety of old new and studio.
Can someone help? I don't like streaming and like physical product. Does anyone know if the doco will come as a dvd or blu ray release hopefully with some extras?
This is what they do - repackage and cash grab. not for real heads, but if yur niece is 15 and just getting into the dead ... would make a nice little intro for her.
& GEEZ LOUISE! How many ways are they going to release Cornell '77?
maybe a special ed version on Maxell XLII 90s...
a reel to reel...
Dang, the boys did a time hop and jammed a Dark Star on Valnetine's Day 1907...
Man those guys in suits, ties, and top hats must've been blown away~~!!!!!
Was lucky enough to attend the screening of this film last night in San Francisco. Full house. Director Bar-Lev, Trixie, Barlow, McNally and star of the film, Brigid Meier, were all there for a Q/A afterward. Groovy night. Won't give a spoiler but for those familiar with the Dead-arc there is a lot here that was very familiar and plenty more that was surprising. I laughed a good bit, got sad in a few places, drooled over Bobby's TESLA, and generally left missing Jerry. Okay, one spoiler hint, lets just say I'm going to revisit the Morning Dew from the last night in Europe 72 at some point today. Oh, and maybe the Althea from 5/1/80 (I think that's the one).
It's the 3-2 Death Don't according to Wikipedia page. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Long_Strange_Trip
RV3, I get it- I was disappointed, too, seeing the selections.
But you seem really wrung out about this- let's put it in perspective. It's disappointing to expect new music and not get it, but there's a steady schedule of unreleased Dead material coming out at least 4-6 times per year, year after year here.
We shouldn't be dying of novelty thirst on this issue. Be patient, more new stuff will come, e.g., the GD 50th anniversary editions of their studio albums, starting with the recent release of the first, eponymous one, promise to have lots of previously-unreleased bits- not to mention Dave's Picks, Box Sets, etc.
Personally, I'm hoping for a nice 1974 box one of these days.
Dave, are you reading this?
I tell you what this is REALLY frustrating....once again just like the incessant greatest hits studio projects- THEY HAVE COMPLETELY FAILED ON THIS! It was advertised as a unique release with rarites & PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASED material- WTF?!?! this is just rehash of previous releases & studio crap.....even the live stuff is nothing new?????? Heck- half the setlist is from 5/8/77- the show that is being released 3 weeks before....they have lazily botched this release....and the AMAZON EXCLUSIVE 3-Disc set doesn't have much PREVIOUSLY UNRELEASEED either....one tune, Stella Blue- from 7/5/81 I believe....
Keep releasing great stuff guys!
> Dark Star
Not sure whether this has been announced elsewhere, but there is also an Amazon exclusive three CD version of this with a further couple of unreleased tracks, presumably tying in with Amazon having the rights to the film. Also, talk a six LP version of the entire contents of the three CD set, although limited to 2500 copies worldwide, and not clear where it is obtainable from. Finally, a two LP version containing highlights from the two CD version, although again it is not clear where this can be ordered from as yet.
Apologies if this information is out there somewhere on the site and I've missed it....!
That's on One From The Vault, right? The CD that is advertised right here on this very site as "No live catalog collection is complete without a copy".
a long strange trips back to Herouville 71, a country show recorded by french tv with Garcia interview by Blanc Francard, interview as interesting as the show(No pay per view in the 70's an pay per back writers in the 60's) . David how may you manage to get that stuff back to Santa Cruz?
However lack of originality in the track list, n o need to mention Dark Star, Dear M Fantasy hey Jude, and Althea from best after "Go to heaven," show, exactly what we expect!
last week I chance upon Dead & Company, best shows after AC (after Captain) since Phil & friends 2006..
unreleased dark stars get me off.
