The late Grateful Dead musician will be honored on Blu-ray in October.

In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock Entertainment is preparing 'Move Me Brightly: Celebrating Jerry Garcia's 70th Birthday' for Blu-ray on October 29.

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.

Specs have not been detailed yet, but supplements will include bonus performances of "Friend Of The Devil," "Bird Song," and "New Speedway Boogie."
