Report | Grateful Dead Live At The Coliseum Vinyl Details

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 format.

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
Side A
01 Loser
02 New Minglewood Blues
03 Don't Ease Me In
