Long Strange Trip is one of the best documentaries on Amazon Prime, and some previously unseen archival footage left on the cutting room floor will be featured in a new deluxe DVD set to be released Friday.
Directed by Amir Bar-Lev (The Tillman Story) and overseen by executive producer Martin Scorsese, Long Strange Trip is a fittingly epic yet intimate look at the Grateful Dead, culling more than five hours’ worth of archival live footage and interviews from the band’s legendary vaults. (The Amazon Original version breaks the doc into six bingeable episodes.)
The previously unreleased material on the deluxe DVD release includes six full songs from the Grateful Dead’s first show in England at the Hollywood Festival on May 24, 1970. The Daily Dot is exclusively premiering the 16mm clip below, which captures the band’s arrival at the airport for the gig.
I’m not going to oversell it: It’s not the most compelling footage, but it helps round out the historic trip, and it’s merely a taste of what’s to come. Bonus points if you spot the fishing pole.
Long Strange Trip: The Untold Story of the Grateful Dead will be released on Nov. 16 as a two-disc DVD ($24.98) and Blu-ray ($27.98). The Deluxe Edition, released as three DVDs ($26.98) and two Blu-rays ($30.98), is limited to 6,500 copies and will only be available via Dead.net.
