"30 Trips Around the Sun is an 80-CD live album, packaged as a box set,
by the rock band the Grateful Dead. Announced for the celebration of
their 50th anniversary, it consists of 30 complete, previously
unreleased concerts — 73 hours of music — with one show per year
from 1966 through 1995. The box set is individually numbered and
limited to 6,500 copies. It was released on October 7, 2015."
"The package also includes a gold-colored vinyl 7-inch single which
bookends the band's career. The A-side is "Caution (Do Not Stop on
Tracks)" from the band's earliest recording session in 1965, with
a B-side of the last song the band ever performed together live,
"Box of Rain" recorded during their final encore at Soldier Field
in Chicago on July 9, 1995. Also contained in the box set is
a 288-page book that includes an extensive essay about the history
of the Grateful Dead by band archivist Nicholas Meriwether, and
a scroll that has "a visual representation of how the band's live
repertoire has evolved through the years"."

"On AllMusic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote, "Initially released
as a limited-edition box set so lavish it was on the verge of being
absurd, 30 Trips Around the Sun is a deep exploration of a simple
idea: tell the Grateful Dead's story through unreleased live
performances taken from every year of their life.... Casual
listening this is not but there are considerable rewards lying
within a monthlong immersion, even for fans who are not
dyed-in-the-wool Deadheads. Certainly, any listener drawn to an
album that runs over 72 hours is by definition dedicated but
30 Trips holds appeal to a fan who hasn't spent time diligently
keeping up with the picks of Dick and Dave because it is indeed
a narrative, showcasing the progression (and occasional stagnation)
of the Dead as no other compilation could."
