Grateful Dead Studio and Live Album Collections Now Available on iTunes
The Grateful Dead are now offering four new digital collections exclusively on iTunes.
Fans can now download The Complete Studio Albums Collection, which contains all of the band’s studio albums from Anthem in the Sun to Built to Last. There is also a Live Albums Collection that features seven live albums recorded between 1969 and 1990: Live/Dead, Grateful Dead, Europe ’72, History of The Dead Vol. 1 (Bear’s Choice), Reckoning, Dead Set and Without A Net.
In addition to the above releases, iTunes has released Complete Studio Rarities Collection and Complete Live Rarities Collection, which contain bonus material taken from the expanded versions of the albums that were reissued as part of the Golden Road and Beyond Description box sets. Those box sets also provide the foundation for a new e-book, The Golden Road and Beyond: A Grateful Dead Primer, which was written by Dennis McNally and can be downloaded for free on iBooks.
