The Grateful Dead's "Truckin' Up To Buffalo" To Be Released As 5LP Vinyl Boxset

Posted September 10, 2014 by MusicDish

A classic July 4th Grateful Dead concert is brought to life with a limited edition 5LP set on 180gram vinyl. Available for pre-order now.

Drawn from arguably the band's strongest tour of their last 15 years on the road, “Truckin' Up To Buffalo” contains the Grateful Dead’s entire 1989 Independence Day performance. The concert, set at Rich Stadium in Orchard Park, NY, was the second of their summer East Coast tour. Song favorites include "Bertha," "Touch Of Grey," "Man Smart, Woman Smarter," "Morning Dew," and "U.S. Blues."

This classic performance is now receiving its first ever vinyl release, set for January 2015 and available for pre-order now. Spread out over tens sides of audiophile-grade 180gram vinyl, the 157 minute concert has never sounded so good. David Glasser at Airshow Mastering meticulously remastered the audio for vinyl, and lacquers were cut by Grammy Award-winner Bernie Grundman at his Hollywood studio.

Limited to 5,000 copies worldwide, this deluxe release is housed in a unique, hardbound vinyl folio-book. Each copy is individually numbered with a gold-foil stamp. It’s a must-have for any Deadhead audiophile, or any serious Grateful Dead collector.
