Official Grateful Dead Spotify Playlist
The retrospective 80-disc album Thirty Trips Around The Sun was made available yesterday by Rhino Records featuring one live recording from each of the years the Grateful Dead performed. If the massive career-spanning collection wasn’t enough Dead, the band shared a Spotify Playlist which includes all of Thirty Trips Around the Sun: The Definitive Live Story 1965-1995 – the companion compilation released featuring one song from each show selected for the box-set – as well as many more cuts from the studio and on stage.
Handing the keys to Saturday Stream over to the Dead was an easy decision given the nearly 10-hour, 87-song collection of studio and live recordings the band compiled. Many of the songs, particularly the studio selections, will be familiar to well-versed Deadheads while the live tunes might provide new territory to explore. The playlist begins with Thirty Trips Around the Sun: The Definitive Live Story 1965-1995 moving from the band’s beginnings on stage through their final year playing together. From there the songs are culled from studio LPs such as Aoxomoxoa, Workingman’s Dead and Shakedown Street alongside excerpts from officially issued live releases.
