Highlights to the Official Motion Picture Soundtrack to the unprecedented four-hour rock documentary, Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead. The film, executive produced by Martin Scorsese and directed by Amir Bar-Lev, probes the creative forces, subversive ambitions, and interpersonal dynamics that drove the band in their 30-year career. Features unreleased tracks and Dead covers.
"Rock's longest, strangest trip, Grateful Dead, was the psychedelic era's most beloved musical ambassadors as well as its most enduring survivors. They spread their message of peace, love, and mind-expansion across the globe throughout three decades. The group had popular music's most fervent and celebrated fan following - the Dead Heads, whose numbers and devotion were legendary in their own right. Grateful Dead was the ultimate cult band, creating a self-styled universe all their own. The Dead became superstars solely on their own terms as tie-dyed pied pipers whose epic, free-form live shows were rites of passage for an extended family of listeners who knew no cultural boundaries." - allmusic.com
"Long Strange Trip expertly captures the story of the Grateful Dead and at the center of it all is the true star of the film: the music," says producer Alex Blavatnik. "This soundtrack gives you a taste of everything that makes the band magical, from their uniquely crafted studio recordings to their unparalleled live performances."
