"The rock music group Grateful Dead is scheduled to perform at a 'potluck picnic' Sunday, sponsored by the Springfield Creamery." Eugene Register-Guard

A "rock picnic." The Field Trip. Kesey's Creamery. August 27, 1972. The Springfield Creamery Benefit. Call it what you will, the sun was beating down hard and bright on that fateful day in Veneta, Oregon when the Grateful Dead heeded Ken Kesey's call to help save the family Creamery. The 100-degree and rising temperatures did not deter the band who were still riding high from their adventures across the pond. It did not discourage filmmakers John Norris, Phil DeGuere, and Sam Field who gained entry into the Dead's tight-knit world with their promise to capture the culture and integrity of the scene. And it certainly didn't inhibit the estimated 20,000 Dead Heads who could not believe their, well, pot...luck.

In fact, this blistering day turned out to be a near-perfect little piece of the Grateful Dead experience and it is with great pleasure, that 41 years later we can present Sunshine Daydream to you the way it was meant to be seen and heard. As Prankster Ken Babbs puts it in the liner notes, this previously unreleased concert film "is a time capsule, a vessel full of exuberant free spirit as exhibited by the enraptured, edified, and satisfied concertgoers, a spirit that can still resound, that can still fill our hearts with joy, with compassion, with that sense and knowledge of our oneness, our open sharing and caring and the belief that the goodness inherent in all of us will continue to shine just as it did in Veneta, Oregon, in 1972. And will prevail." And prevail it does, with its pristine sound and beautiful visuals, the band transporting the audience to other-worldly planes with definitive versions of their beloved songs like "Bertha," "China>Rider," "Playing In The Band,""Greatest Story Ever Told,""Dark Star," and "Sing Me Back Home" and the Dead Heads in their wild and, quite literally, naked glory.

A Dead.net exclusive, this "most requested" and "most revered" show is limited to 12,500 individually numbered copies on DVD. Presented in an original tie-dye slipcase by Courtenay Pollock, the set also includes 40-page book with in-depth essays by David Lemieux, Sam Field, Johnny Dwork, Ken Babbs, and Nicholas G. Meriwether.

With out unwrapping, how do I tell the DVD and Blu-ray apart?

May 1977 & Veneta

It's been 32 days since this was first announced is anyone else surprised that all 3 formats are still available? The shirts sell out in about 2-3 days however the real deal (the music) hasn't sold out yet. The same goes with the May 1977 box set. I ordered that the very second (June 7) it was announced. Because I thought it would be sold out by Friday of that week. The same with SSDD I ordered it while I was in the theatre. In fact about 10-20 people were in the theatre lobby with there smartphones out, placing orders. I really thought the vinyl version would have been gone by August 8th. I guess the 79.98 is a bit steep, however when it comes to the Dead money is NEVER an object to me. One final thought am I the only one who feels that 42 bucks is a lot of money for a towel, I have to admit it is cool. ENJOY YOUR LABOR DAY, DEADLAND!!!!!!!

back ordered

I just ordered the cd dvd exclusive set...I love getting all the extra stuff.
but I got a message saying it was back ordered...how can it be back ordered if
its not even set to go out until 9-17? Or did I pay for something that is actually
sold out? I think 12,500 could sell out fast

your presence on this site is necessary to help me remember the GD continued after 1979.

I am being sincerely complimentary with that comment.

As you can tell i am extremely biased toward pre 1980 GD.

7/18/82 would be a GREAT release if we are heading into 80s releases.

double wow

A search for the new '69 footage has led me to this. Some kind soul has posted a pro shot video of 10-3-87; something I did not even know existed (had been told to the contrary). My favorite Looks Like Rain, and Jerry's first solo is among my top 3 Jerry solos of all time. Now I'm having a good day.

Phoenix my man:

I suspect the dvd/bluray release will be exactly the same as what they aired in the theaters with, perhaps, additional bonus material. Not sure what else to say in response to the rest of your post other than that I'd like to share some of what you had at the theater because Bird Song was in there right before Dark Star if I'm not mistaken! As I recall, it was not in the previously circulating version of the movie. Rest assured that Bird Song will be on this release.

The DVD tracklisting....

So, maybe this is a foolish question....but what is the Tracklist for the DVD? I went to the movies on Jerry's Bday, will it be exactly that?

I guess... I was hoping for video from the Bird Song?? I will have to bust out my old VCD of this and see... I thought they had the footage from that song too?

41 years!

I'm suprised no one mentioned that today was this concert's 41st anniversary. After all is is the most requested concert, ahead of Barton Hall, ahead of Red Rocks 07-08-78, even ahead of Captiol theater 02-18-71!

Is it worth an extra $21?

That's subjective. I understand that some will unequivocally answer "Yes - it is worth it." However, it *isn't* worth the extra $21 to me. I'd probably watch the bonus documentary once & read through the 40-page book once & never touch either again. The real value for me is in the music which will be played repeatedly.

I'm glad that we have the choice. Those who want it & are willing to pay for it can have it, and those of us who would rather save a few bucks & get only what we really want are happy too :)

This is what I've been waiting to hear!

Awesome! Thanks for the heads-up. Personally, I'm not that terribly interested in the movie, book, etc. - I'd probably watch the movie once & then it would be just one more thing to sit around the house & take up space. On the other hand, I would get a LOT more mileage out of the tunes.

I was debating whether or not to buy the boxed set yesterday. After reading this I'm definitely going to hold off & just buy the music. I'm surprised dead.net isn't giving us the option to buy the mp3/FLAC files direct. Maybe its a Rhino thing?

Had I known there'd be a twenty-something $ audio-only version available, I might've thought twice about ordering this immediately as I did. But the book and, especially, the bonus docu with recollections, are things I'll be glad to have. As stellar as the "Festival Express" concert footage is, the latter-day recollections are delightful, too.

I LOVE my soundboard of this show, but my version includes almost none of the between-song banter that I've heard on Dead hours and such, like Bobby informing the crowd at the end of set 2--my favorite set of the three--that they'll be back when it's cooled down....

Likewise, hearing there's restored footage of Bird Song in the new print (!) renders my copy of Sunshine Daydream obsolete. The film can be tedious viewing at times (I've only watched mine once ever) but I'm looking forward to the extra songs, and a few more shots of Keith in action, sounds like?

Glad this finally got released. Psyched to hear what Jeffrey Norman has done with these tapes.

Availability

The standard, non-deluxe edition is certainly not an Amazon-only exclusive. It is also available for pre-order from other sources (e.g. CD Universe). I doubt that dead.net will offer the standard, non-deluxe edition before their exclusive editions sell out and even then they may not offer it. It is not clear to me whether or not there is a 3 CD + Blu-ray standard, non-deluxe edition. I have only seen mention of a 3 CD + DVD standard, non-deluxe edition.
The 4 LP set is not exclusive to dead.net but may be harder to find elsewhere. Elusive Disc (www.elusivedisc.com) also have the 4 LP set available for pre-order. Note that the 4 LP set, although not exclusive to dead.net, is limited to 5000 copies.

Finally, the companion to the NRPS set!

I've often wondered why the Riders released their set but not the Dead, although everyone knows about the guitars warping in the extreme heat. As for this deluxe edition, the NRPS disc case has the very cool blotter artwork, so the tie-die case will look perfect alongside it. Also, would I pay $25-30 for just the music? Yes! Would I pay $15-20 for the movie? Yes! Would I pay $10 for the awesome booklet filled with photos and essays? Yes! The price seems fair for such a revered show.

Availability

Will the non-deluxe edition be available at dead.net & in the retail market just like the Spring 1990 release or will that be an amazon only exclusive? I feel if it becomes available at dead.net it won't be available until Monday September 16. Sell as many of the deluxe editions as they can. If they put the non-deluxe edition on sale today, I'd cancel the deluxe edition and order the non-deluxe edition I don't need all the schwag, this isn't Europe '72 or Spring '90, where I wanted all the schwag. Anybody feel the way I do?

What is with the recent releases having a non-standard CD size packaging? I know it's a petty complaint, but this and the May 77 releases don't exactly fit well on a CD sized shelf.

50 $$ camping chairs?

Do what I did, I got me a 12 $ fold up chair and put a 2$ SYF sticker on it. All this merchandising for a 1972 concert that cost 3.50 to go to. I think we're losing our way. I'll keep my bootleg versions and be very happy with that.

SSDD @ Amazon for $30.43 w/ free shipping. This is 3 CDs + 1 DVD only, no booklet or slipcase. Not sure if bonus video footage is on the DVD. I would think it is, can't see WB/Rhino making 2 different DVDs. I ordered the Deluxe Bluray from DeadNet (~):E

and only $30 from amazon (no shipping charge for "prime" members), but its a DVD rather than blu-ray and no booklet slip cover or bonus interviews

of course i jumped on the deadnet offering first day, but if i could cancel and order from amazon i probably would

but since i cant i guess i'll try to enjoy the extra stuff

Pretty darn grateful ...

I'm pretty darn grateful that "Sunshine Daydream" & the Grateful Dead's audio segment of 8/27/72 has been officially released. While I was watching the movie in the theater, my lady friend ordered the deluxe CD/DVD edition.
Now I have the NRPS "Veneta, Oregon, August 27, 1972" CD (Kufala KUF0088) and in a few weeks I'll have the GD's performance of this benefit show. What I wished for, I got.

What I wish is that Rhino should have offered more options:
1. This deluxe CD/DVD edition;
2. This deluxe CD/BR edition;
3. Standard (w/o book) edition of CD/DVD;
4. Standard (w/o book) edition of CD/BR;
5. DVD with booklet - just a few pages, only;
6. BR with booklet - just a few pages, only;
7. CD with booklet only.

Options 1 thru 4 exist; options 5, 6, 7 do not exist, or at least not yet.

I am grateful that all the parties involved were able to come to some type of agreement so this well known, sought after show could see it's official release.

Non-deluxe edition

The non-deluxe edition from Amazon etc. is 3 CDs and a DVD. What you get here at dead.net is the Exclusive edition. Look no further than the top of this page to see what extras you get with the dead.net exclusive edition and will not get with the standard Amazon et al edition.

Edit: When Amazon jumped the gun and listed before they should have done, it was listed as 3 CDs and a DVD. The listing was quickly removed. Now it has reappeared, it lists the release as just 2 CDs.I doubt that this is correct but there is no way to verify the number of discs and whether there is a DVD included or not.

CDs only

I, for one, hope it's true that the CDs will be offered for sale without the movie. That I would buy.

Speaking of CDs by the way, why is it that most Dick's Picks are in such short supply and selling for 4x the normal price by profiteering re-sellers on Amazon? As far as I can tell, these were never intended to be limited edition offerings like Dave's Picks, were they? I sure wish Dead.net would rectify this shortage. Thanks for listening.

Non deluxe edition? Amazon.com

Does anyone else feel that there will be a CD only release? I notice that the release date is a Tuesday which is new music day. I'm kind of wondering if TPTB will release a non- deluxe set ala Crimson, White & Indigo or will they release a CD only set ala Spring '90. If they release a CD only version you can best bet I will get one if only for the reason I can travel with it and leave the deluxe set for home use. It's what I did with Europe '72 part 2 & Spring '90. In fact I'm surprised they didn't do it with May 1977. Anyone else wondering the same thing? I may have spoken to soon amazon.com is offering Sunshine Daydream ??? For $36.13 available for preorder item ships September17.

The limited edition is not 12,000 total

If one looks, this edition is limited to 12,500 for the blu/ray and 12,500 for the DVD format and 5,000 for the LP. That's 25,500 total for all formats combined. That being the case, it could be awhile before it sells completely out.

Placed my order and looking forward to an official edition of one my favorite shows.

CDs

The whole package is a bit too steep, I really just want the CDs which I pray will be available at some point. I enjoyed the film any time the band was playing but there was too much crowd scenery. Garcia was positively entranced during Dark Star and the theater I was in was in stunned silence after Sing Me Back Home then erupted into applause.

Not SOLD OUT

Is anyone else surprised that this hasn't sold out yet? I ordered it while sitting in the movie theatre, 5 minutes before the movie started. I expected this set either the blu-ray/CD combo or the DVD/CD combo to be sold out by Friday evening or Saturday afternoon. The tour shirt sold out by Saturday morning so did the SSDD shirt the SSDD ringer sold out Sunday afternoon. So I'am more than surprised this hasn't sold out yet. Especially with only 12,500 units being produced. Is anyone else surprised? September 17th cannot get here fast enough.

3 CDs plus a DVD plus the fact that it is AVAILABLE...

with professional remastered sound and all makes $50 pretty palatable. When I saw it was a available for purchase, I thought "I bet it will be $79."

The E72 box set at $500: THAT was expensive (I didn't buy it) (make that couldn't buy it)

Spring 90 was teuer (German word) (didn't buy it)

I also couldn't swing May 77

$50 is a chunk of money, but for what i get for it, it is worth it, and within my price range. Plus I have been wishing for it for years, and I asked DaL directly about it at a Q&A in Seattle, so I got it.

"but the fourth one stayed up!"

unklesam, I really think it is worth the $$$, and you will be happy with the material.

Animated Response

I don't think the animation in the GD Movie was used because of loss or damage to live footage. Check out the bonus disc, there is plenty of quality material there. IIRC the animation grew more extensive than originally envisaged as Guttierez and Garcia became increaingly enthused.

Cheaper than $50

unkle sam,
Why the high price to begin with? GDP/Rhino do not own the master of this film, or they just aquired it. What is being offered here is a limited edition deluxe version.
The CD/DVD & CD/BR are going to be released mass-market retail, thru amazon.com & many other online retailers, like deepdiscount.com (where their price is $37 - a *big* $2 discount) and at the bricks & mortar record stores, the ones that you actually walk into the store and pick up the product and pay for it in cash or handing the cashier your Credit Card or Debit Card.
Probably this mass market retail edition will not include the book or the slipcase.
We shall see what happens on September 17, 20013.

Creamery

The sample here of "China Cat Sunflower" is just incredible, like perfect, If people are having trouble ordering, it is probably cause there is so much traffic in the shop. Wish I could get the 3 CDs, don't care for the video, except for watching Jerry, Phil and Bob. If you listen closely, you can here a delay , sort of like on the GDM. You put that into a huge hall and it will be more noticeable. This will sell out quick. Looks like "May-77" is at a stall with around 2,500 copies left, the trouble with doing 5 shows in a row, is the sound and setlists are very similar. Bartrum Hall from the 8th should be in there instead of one of the Chicago Shows, other than that, The May,77 has a near audiophile production.

Movie - some GREAT; too much audience

Gee, come on concert camera guys and editors! Show more of Jerry's fingers and less of the t&a in the audience! I just want to see the Dead, and especially Jerry's finger work. Scan the audience once in awhile but OMG don't make HALF the movie of sweaty dirty naked bodies when we could be watching Jerry!

That being said, GREAT Bird Song and Dark Star. Jerry: second to God!

Did not disappoint

The best songs were there, the mix was spot-on, Keith was audible (and laudable...and possibly laudanum), great performance from him, the mix really favored Bill too. Fantastic job all around. Sing Me Back Home was the highlight of the film, can't wait to crank it up at home in the dark on one of our few remaining warm nights!
