Each year many acts show their support for independent record stores by putting limited-edition releases up for sale exclusively at those retailers on Record Store Day. Details about a
number of releases set for this year's Record Store Day, April 19th, have already been
unveiled and our friends at Wax Poetic are keeping tabs on expected
releases thought to be announced before or on March 20, when the full list is posted on
Record Store Day's official
website. Wax Poetic has a stellar track record and has shared
details of this year's expected Grateful Dead release with us.
It appears the Dead will issue the 2-LP set Live At The Coliseum, featuring most of
the band's first-ever show at Hampton Coliseum from May 4, 1979, on Record Store Day. The
producers are listed as the Grateful Dead and the band's legacy manager David Lemieux.
Lacquers were cut by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman mastering, the release was
pressed at RTI on 2 180-gram LPs and housed in an old-school style gatefold jacket.
Live At The Coliseum will mark the first release of music from this show in any
The release seems to include the bottom end of the first set and the entire second set.
There was no encore that night. We're especially excited to hear the "Estimated" > "Eyes"
sequence that takes up an entire side of vinyl.
Here's the expected track list for Live At The Coliseum
Full Length Vinyl 1
02 New Minglewood Blues
03 Don't Ease Me In
01 I Need A Miracle
03 Good Lovin'
04 Ship Of Fools
Full Length Vinyl 2
01 Estimated Prophet
02 Eyes Of The World
02 Stella Blue
03 Around and Around
We'll be sure to update this post once an official announcement comes down.
