Grateful Dead's 1977 Box Set Due In June

The Grateful Dead will be releasing a box set of their 1977 tour. The set includes concert performances from their shows in St. Paul, Chicago, St. Louis and Tuscaloosa in May 1977, with a 14-disc set of songs including "Brown-Eyed Women," "Uncle John's Band," "Terrapin Station," "Estimated Prophet," "Jack-A-Roe" and "Passenger."

Other special features of the set include a booklet of stories and anecdotes from each show, photographs, notes and an essay by historian Steve Silberman.

The limited-edition box set, of which only 15,000 individually numbered copies will be printed, will cost $139.98. It follows on the success of previously-issued limited-edition Dead projects, including Europe '72: the Complete Recordings and Spring 1990, both of which sold out as pre-orders.

The set will be available for purchase on June 11 and can be pre-ordered on the band's website.
