The Grateful Dead remain one of the most loved and collected bands on the Rhino stable. Formed in 1965 by Bob Weir and the legendary, but now departed, Jerry Garcia the band created a sound and vibe that Lenny Kaye from The Patti Smith Group said ""touches on ground that most other groups don't even know exists”
The Grateful Dead honoured the start of its 25th anniversary as a band in 1990 with a celebratory three-week jaunt through North America’s east coast that’s still considered by many fans to be one of the group’s finest tours.
This 3CD set is the official debut of one of the most sought-after shows in the Dead canon: the March 29, 1990 show at Nassau Coliseum, where Grammy-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis sat in with the group. The entire second set is one continuous highlight, especially the breathtaking version of “Dark Star.”
