A bounty of footage from the Grateful Dead’s July 2015 residency at Chicago’s Soldier Field will be captured in a selection of forthcoming box sets. Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead is due Nov. 20, but the official track listing arrived today (Oct. 15).
We said sets -- not set -- so the Fare the Well collections get a little complicated. They’re all culled from the Dead’s final three Chicago shows, bit they’re available in a variety of formats and lengths, depending on your level of Dead dedication.
For retail, footage from the July 5 show will be turned into one option, available in three-CD/two Blu-ray, three/CD-DVD, and two Blu-Ray or two-DVD set. More simply, a “Best Of” edition will feature two CDs worth of highlights from the final three Chicago shows -- July 3,4, and 5. All of these will also be available digitally.
