Grateful Dead’s 1972 Benefit Concert Set for Release

Subscribe to 101.9 KING-FM on

On Aug. 1, the late Jerry Garcia’s birthday, Dead Heads got a treat: a special one-time theatrical showing of a 1972 benefit concert the Grateful Dead performed in Veneta, Ore., for the Kesey family’s Springfield Creamery. But if you missed it, you’re in luck. The Dead are releasing the whole thing on CD, DVD, LP and via digital download.

The set, called ‘Sunshine Dream,’ will be available on Sept. 17 in several different configurations, including two exclusives that are available for pre-order now.

Three of the sets include a DVD or Blu-ray and three CDs. You can also digitally download just the audio or pick up one of the limited edition LP sets. Prices range from $19.99 (for the digital audio) all the way up to $79.98 (for the vinyl).

The ‘Sunshine Dream’ recordings feature the classic lineup of Jerry Garcia, Donna Jean Godchaux, Keith Godchaux, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir. And the set list, according to a press release, includes “memorable performance of ‘Sugaree,’ ‘Deal,’ ‘Black-Throated Wind,’ ‘Greatest Story Ever Told,’ ‘Bird Song’ and a mind-melting version of ‘Dark Star’ that stretches over 30 minutes.”
