The Grateful Dead are set to release the biggest boxset ever
The Grateful Dead are going to release the largest boxset ever. Grateful Dead: 30 Trips Around the Sun is an 80-disc box set commemorating the band’s 50th anniversary; it’s filled with 30 unreleased concert recordings spanning the band’s entire career. It will also be available as a USB drive.
The collection will include one show from each year of the band’s existence, starting in 1966 and ending in 1995. From start to finish, the box set will be 73 hours long. There’s also going to be a four-CD version, 30 Trips Around the Sun: The Live Story, with one song from each concert. That box will cost $45. The 80-CD version? Oh, that will run you $699.98. Both collections will be released on Sept. 18.
