GratefulDeadMovieSoundtrackCD-01

The Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack is a five CD live album by the Grateful Dead. It was recorded from October 16 to October 20, 1974, and was released on Grateful Dead Records on November 9, 2004 at the same time the Movie was released on DVD. It was rereleased on March 15, 2005 on Rhino/Warner Bros. Records.

In 1974, the Grateful Dead were exhausted from touring, and their sound system, the "Wall of Sound", had proven too expensive to continue with. In response, the group decided to stop touring for an indefinite period of time. In October they played five nights at the Winterland Ballroom in San Francisco, California. As they were the last concerts before the hiatus, the Grateful Dead wanted them to be properly recorded and documented by a film crew.

The results were a rather unsuccessful live album, Steal Your Face, and a film, The Grateful Dead Movie. The movie was released in theaters in 1977, and on videotape in 1981. In 2004 it was expanded to a double DVD with bonus cuts and documentaries along with a five CD album which was released as The Grateful Dead Movie Soundtrack. According to GD vault archivist Daivd Lemieux on an interview filmed for PBS broadcast of the Movie, the original Soundtrack was going to be seven discs but the higher up's thought five was enough. As a result, some songs were edited with Eyes Of The World having over 5 minutes removed. The album included even more previously unreleased tracks, including a rare "Tomorrow Is Forever". The DVD contains one track not released on the soundtrack ("Sugaree" from October 18 which was released on Steal Your Face).
