Grateful Dead Documentary “Long Strange Trip” on Blu-ray in November

The 2017 Documentary Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of The Grateful Dead is coming to Blu-ray Disc on November 9th via Rhino Entertainment. The documentary, produced by Amazon Studios, has been available to stream on Amazon Prime Video for a good while (even in higher 4K resolution). Sadly, I hate to report that there is no sign that this will receive a 4K UHD Blu-ray release, yet it will receive a DVD release?! I cannot understand that logic one bit, but I digress, and now back to the news.

Tech specs for the release and any indication of bonus materials set to be included have not at all been detailed. The documentary is split up into 6 chapters and spans over 4 hours in length, proving to be a must-see for anyone who is a fan of The Grateful Dead (a Deadhead). This includes new interviews and archival interviews with the members of the band like Bob Weir, songwriter Robert Hunter, and countless others close to the group. You also get lots of never-before-seen live performance footage from concerts. This is one trip definitely worth the price of admission. Speaking of which, the title is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon.

“The Us Festival: 1982 The Us Generation” Concert is coming to Blu-ray August 10th

The Us Festival: 1982 The Us Generation is coming out in the form of the 2017 documentary later this week (Friday) August 10th, via MVD Entertainment Group. The US Festival was created by Steve Wozniak (co-founder of Apple) with the help of concert promoter Bill Graham. The first one was a three-day event that included performances from the following musicians:

  • The B-52’s
  • The Cars
  • The Police
  • Eddie Money
  • Fleetwood Mac
  • Ramones
  • Santana
  • Talking Heads
  • Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Tech specs for the release have not been detailed yet. It is known that the release will come in the form of a “combo pack” with a DVD of the documentary included. The press release includes no mention of bonus materials either. This title is now available for PRE-ORDER over at Amazon and Best Buy, but you’ll have to be Prime or “Elite Plus” at retailers to get it by release date. More on that a bit further below. First though, enjoy the trailer for the documentary about the concert and press release below, after the break.
