Listen to Two Tracks from Drive-By Truckers “It’s Great To Be Alive!” 35 track live box set

The Drive-By Truckers are thrilled to announce a massive, career-spanning live box set comprised of 35 tracks recorded last fall at The Fillmore in San Francisco. “It’s Great To Be Alive!” will be in stores October 30th in a variety of formats. The deluxe box set include: 5 LPs, 3 CDs, a 16 page LP sized booklet with liner notes from Patterson Hood and 6 mini concerts posters with artwork from Wes Freed. A lighter 3 CD version is also available (with all of the track from the box), then a shorter deluxe 2xLP highlights edition entitled “This Weekend’s The Night” will also be released. All editions are available to preorder from the Drive-By Truckers and iTunes.

As Patterson Hood tells NPR Music: “We sequenced it to be like kind of an ultimate DBT set list. We never use a set list from night to night so the show is ever evolving, but for this it was like, what would be the ultimate three hour show we could play right now?” Hear the live take of “Birthday Boy” below and pre-order the album HERE:
