Reviews

The Grateful Dead Movie is the legendary documentary and live concert directed by Jerry Garcia. Capturing the band at the height of their success at San Francisco s Winter Ballroom in 1974, this end-of-tour run marked the beginning of an extended hiatus for the band, successfully portraying the burgeoning Deadhead scene. Transferred from the original 35mm film negative in high definition and presented in 1.78:1 widescreen aspect ratio, this Blu-Ray special edition contains a bonus DVD disc packed full of extras.

Two disc Special Edition includes:-

Restored picture from the original negative masters

5.1 DTS HD audio from original theatrical mix, plus master multi track tapes.

Feature length commentary with supervising editor Susan Crutcher and film editor John Nutt.

95 minutes of never-seen-before footage

Bonus songs in 5.1 stereo

Visible lyrics options on all bonus songs

A Look Back documentary

Making of Animated Sequence documentary

Making of the DVD documentary film

TV Spots, multi angle cameras, lyrics, productions notes, photos galleries.

Format: Blu-ray
This BluRay and bonus DVD is what the Grateful Dead was all about in the mid 1970s. The weird animation, the dancing hippies, the long jams and excellent musicianship is what the legendary Grateful Dead were all about. This BluRay version has superior sound compared the the original DVD, however the picture quality is not much on an improvement in my opinion. Still quite grainy considering its filmed mostly in dark conditions.
As a film this has sone great music and a genuine insight into the workings of a band that was an American icon.
I have enjoyed this on BluRay and the extra DVD has some edited songs of missing performances that are very enjoyable but not essential. The doco's are well done and even show us how the movie was filmed and recorded.
The audience really are with it, the band is performing brilliantly and its a fun film with some great music as well.
Worth the trip, man.

The film is fun, interesting, and the music good. The live performances on the second DVD are mind blowing, especially The Other One.

The best music/concert recording of all time. Technically excellent recording, showing the way things should be done, and then there is the music. Amazing music, they are a band beyond description.

Just to balance out the other review.

This has to be the definitive Dead movie which is unsurprising since it was painstakingly put together by Garcia himself. Every minute is great and there are a host of extras included that aren't part of the movie itself. If you don't already have a copy it's an absolute steal at this price. What are you waiting for?!

Well, what to say? I suppose all Deadheads enjoy this movie and I could watch the opening animation for ever (perhaps) ...
