Dead to Release All of Europe ’72

This September, will release a limited-edition, individually-numbered, Europe ’72: The Complete Recordings boxed set which will feature more than 60 discs and over 70 hours of music – every single note recorded on the legendary 22-show Europe ’72 tour. Each disc will be mixed by Jeffery Norman, primary mixer of Dead archival multi-track material, and mastered to HDCD specs by two-time Grammy-winning engineer David Glasser. While many of the recordings heard on Europe ’72 were sweetened in the studio after the tour, those tracks will be included in this collection without overdubs, where possible.

Every show will include its own liner notes by top Dead scholars (including David Gans, Steve Silberman, Blair Jackson and Nicholas Meriwether) and concert-goers, as well as many never-before-seen photos. This magnificent, unprecedented collection will also feature memorabilia and ephemera from the tour, and a coffee table-worthy book with a comprehensive tour essay by Blair Jackson and hundreds of never-before-seen photos – all housed in a groovy replica steamer trunk.

As a special bonus, the first 3,000 boxed sets issued will be personalized editions. This unprecedented release will be limited to orders placed, with a maximum of 7,200 boxes produced.

Additionally, to reward those loyal fans who have to wait until September to receive the final box set, will offer several exclusive goodies over the coming months.

    Man, it would take FOREVER to burn all 60 cds to MP3 – Why exactly are they releasing this on CDs btw? How about a USB stick? I personally don’t care about the “inferior sound quality,” but for the snobs, do something higher-res. Maybe just a pre-loaded ipod…
