Grateful Dead
30 Trips Around The Sun (Music Only Edition)

When we began discussing audio projects to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Grateful Dead back in 2012, we knew we wanted to do something completely unprecedented. We could think of nothing more exciting or ambitious than a career-spanning overview of the band's live legacy focused on what best tells the story: complete concerts. Our first criterion was the very best live music to represent any given year in the band’s history. We wanted to make sure that there were not only the tent-pole shows that fans have been demanding for decades but also ones that are slightly more under the radar, but equally excellent. For those who listen to the entire box straight through, chronologically, the narrative of the Grateful Dead's live legacy will be seen as second to none in the pantheon of music history." - David Lemieux


Please note, this is the Music Only edition of 30 Trips Around The Sun, which includes all of the music from the boxed set, with each show in its own individual digipak. You'll get a total of 80 CDs and over 70 hours of prime Grateful Dead.
