Eagle Rock Entertainment has officially announced that it will release on Blu-ray Move Me Brightly: Celebrating Jerry Garcia's 70th Birthday. A must-see for any Deadhead, Move Me Brightly is a film based around a unique musical gathering held to mark what would have been Jerry Garcia's 70th birthday at Bob Weir's TRI Studios in San Rafael, California. Street date is October 29th.
Part insightful documentary and part rousing concert film, Move Me Brightly features contributions from fellow Grateful Dead members Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Bill Kreutzmann, Mickey Hart and Donna Jean Godchaux along with Garcia family members and special guests such as Carlos Santana, Sammy Hagar, Mike Campbell, Perry Farrell and Stephen Perkins from Jane's Addiction, and interviewer Luke Wilson.
The film also features an impressive lineup of musicians representing more recent generations who have been influenced by Jerry Garcia, such as Vampire Weekend's Chris Tomson, Phish's Mike Gordon, The Hold Steady's Craig Finn and Tad Kubler and Furthur's Joe Russo & Jeff Chimenti.
The one-of-a-kind line-up of Move Me Brightly concert performers featured in the film joined together to perform unique interpretations of Garcia classics including "Terrapin Station," "Shakedown Street," "Cumberland Blues," "New Speedway Boogie," "Friend Of The Devil," and many more.
Move Me Brightly was directed by Justin Kreutzmann, the son of Grateful Dead drummer Bill.

Unfortunately, since the nature of this band is extended jam sessions, the concert didn't cover most of the songs that I as a casual fan would want to have heard...Truckin', Casey Jones, Sugar Magnolia, Scarlet Begonias, Ripple, Fire On the Mountain, Box of Rain, etc. (Friend of the Devil is a nice bonus though)
I'm sure true Deadheads that buy BDs will be all over it though.
