Announcing July 1978: The Complete Recordings

We’re pleased to announce JULY 1978: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS, five incredible unreleased shows and the first official release from the long-lost tapes, recently returned to the Grateful Dead’s vault. Follow the Dead on a sonic journey through a superb selection of settings, an often epic adventure that finds them winning over Willie and Waylon fans in Kansas City, conjuring charisma in Omaha, and elevating the Red Rocks beyond their already spiritual planes. With five distinct performances painting the masterpiece of 1978, Betty Cantor-Jackson's always-pristine soundboard recordings, and the "hall-of-fame pedigree" of the Dead's first-ever shows at the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre, this is one release that far exceeds excellence in music, sound quality, and rarity.

Limited to 15,000 individually numbered copies, JULY 1978: THE COMPLETE RECORDINGS includes Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, MO (7/1/78), St. Paul Civic Center, St. Paul, MN (7/3/78), Omaha Civic Auditorium, Omaha, NE (7/5/78), and Red Rocks Amphitheater, Morrison CO (7/7/78 and 7/8/78) - all of the performances in this collection are drawn from the band’s master soundboard recordings, each newly mastered by Jeffrey Norman. The set also features original artwork by esteemed cartoonist Paul Pope (D.C. and Marvel comics) and in-depth liner notes written by Nick Meriwether (Grateful Dead Archives at the University of California, Santa Cruz), as well as a producer’s note from producer David Lemieux.

Due May 13th, we anticipate that this extraordinary box will sell out. Your best bet is to pre-order it now, then sit back, relax, and enjoy all the exclusive content we'll be rolling out over the next few weeks right here.

Looking for something a little more byte-sized? The collection will also be available for HD digital download in FLAC and ALAC, exclusively at dead.net, on release day.

Late Night

If they wanna burn off the last 1,500 or whatever copies, they need to run a late-night TV commercial, something cheese like "Freedom Rock," kind of deal.

Should be easy, just take a look at what late night shit is playing that a Dead audience would likely be into. Sets gone in no time... and this box is a treasure.

I have, and I think HotRats provides an easily digestive entrée for initiates, much like Workingman's & Beauty are often recommended as an effective intro to the Dead. Don't get me wrong, consensus trax like Peaches are attractive - its like a soft blend fusion of jazz, indie, and RnR. Beyond a handful of stuff, though, I find myself straining to attach...and with so much else out there, I don't tarry on mixed material very long. As far as the GD community is concerned, however, you are in an overwhelming majority.

Per the little yellow ticket in my box tonight, Dylan is calling from behind the USPS counter, but it'll have to wait til Friday morning as loooong work/run/swim days preclude pick up b4. This evening on the trail it was Beggars Banquet, Let it Bleed, and a couple trax off the first disc of the Exile deluxe set (remastered original album)...I've come to regard that 5-year from Beggars through Soup as a nearly unprecedented sustained studio effort; Some Girls feels like it should've been #6 in the sequence as Black and OnlyRnR simply aren't on the same level.

I'm curious to hear about your progress along the early years' official release timeline; I imagine your at, or just past, the vaunted 4 shows that constitute the LiveDead killing grounds! 3/1 is one of my top 5 all-time...even the horrid Jude encore seems a necessary closing reminder that boys are - after all - human, though the preceding hours are enough to suggest otherwise.

Days between...

Seems an apt way of describing these days with multiple personalities twixt Fall and Winter.

DD, I have lovely floor to ceiling shelves in my study along the wall behind my desk which house my vinyl & cd collection, and a quick spin-n-survey reveals 19 releases through Bear' Choice (counting the 4 shows in the FW69 box as just one) in addition to the superb and largely underrated sets/shows from March 68, April 69, and January & February 70 through the D/L series. You've got your work cut out!

I love the King's Beach Bowl compilation; curiously, I've never seen a breakdown as to which tracks are attributable to which of the 2 shows (out of 3). This information vacuum is an anomaly in these days where we know just about everything about recording specs and the band's equipment for official releases. I dearly wonder what else might be available from that run.

Did the usb box come with the costume? With my love of Jazz and improvisational RnR, Zappa would seem a natural fit to my tastes, but try as a I might the music doesn't jibe with me - though the Halloween shows are raved about elsewhere. I don't own any of the other albums you listed, though Hitchhiker seems a likely future buy.

It was 28F when puppy & I hit the trailhead at dawn, and likely a bit cooler once we reached altitude, as the wind currents were stronger. My tastes ran to punk (pun not necessarily intended) as I began with Stiff Little Fingers' brilliant debut Inflammable Materials and then began working through Patti's catalogue starting with my favourite Radio Ethiopia, while making it through Easter and most of Prophet before ending. At that point, it was in the upper 40s and I'd stripped 2 layers from the torso in addition to a scarf and gloves. Hope y'all had a similarly beautiful day!

Yeah Kate

I’m trying to come up with the words to extol the virtues of this magnificent Box that contains previously uncirculated shows along with the best sounding versions ever of the Red Rocks shows. Especially 7/7 which previously circulated as a mono recording that had been split into 2 channels.

I keep on trying,
But I could not get the point across.....
