Grateful Dead’s “Sunshine Daydream” Offers Sought-After Live Show on CD, DVD, Blu-Ray
The Dead will rise in September with a new set from Rhino.
Sunshine Daydream takes Deadheads back to one of the most sought-after shows in the band’s history – a blistering set in Veneta, Oregon in the dead of summer 1972 – on CD and video for the first time.
Having just returned from a now-legendary tour of Europe (painstakingly chronicled by Rhino in one of the biggest box sets in recent memory), The Grateful Dead were in top form when they traveled to the Olde Renaissance Fairgrounds in Veneta, Oregon, to put on a show to benefit the Springfield Creamery, a local dairy run by the parents of Ken Kesey, the famed novelist and countercultural hero. Kesey’s Merry Pranksters were on hand for what was their final “acid test,” and the Dead – at the time, consisting of Jerry Garcia, Donna and Keith Goodcheaux, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh and Bob Weir – put on a rollicking show on one of the hottest days on record in state history.
Sunshine Daydream will be available in a number of physical formats:
- Standard retail edition: contains the entire show on three HDCDs and one DVD featuring newly remixed 5.1 surround sound
- Deluxe Dead.net edition: contains the content of the standard edition with an expanded 40-page booklet and Grateful Days, a new documentary about the classic show. 12,500 copies of this edition will be available with a DVD, and another 12,500 with a Blu-Ray.
- Vinyl edition: the entire show on four LPs, limited to 5,000 copies
