Dead: Rocking the Cradle, Egypt 1978
- 2-CD set + DVD
In the fall of 1978, the Grateful Dead embarked on an unprecedented journey to rock the Cradle of Civilization. Thirty years later, we commemorate this legendary trip with a 2-CD / 1-DVD set brimming with unreleased audio and video. Recorded September 15-16, 1978 at the Gizah Sound and Light Theater, the original 24-track recordings have been remastered in HDCD for superior sound quality.
The DVD features more than 100 minutes of footage including 13 songs from the final Egypt show, as well as a featurette titled The Vacation Tapes containing never-before-seen candid footage from the trip. Special pyramid-inspired pop-up packaging includes rare photos and liner notes by longtime Dead associate Alan Trist.
