What a Long Strange Trip It’s Been, subtitled The Best of the Grateful Dead, is a compilation album by the Grateful Dead. It was initially a two-record LP released September 1, 1977 by Warner Bros. Records. Even though the band left Warner Bros. after their contract was up in order to form their own label, Grateful Dead Records, Warner Bros. continued to release older material from during the contract period.
The title of the compilation comes from one of Robert Hunter’s most famous lyrics, the line from “Truckin’”: Lately it occurs to me: What a long, strange trip it’s been.
The album was reissued as both a 2-CD set and on cassette tape, by Warner Bros. in 1989 when the band was revitalized by their latest albums In the Dark and Built to Last.
