Product Description

Product Description

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.”

Format: Audio CD
"Wake Up to Find Out" is a three-CD live album by the Grateful Dead containing the complete concert recorded on March 29, 1990 at Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, New York. With such a long and varied career there are "hot" and "cold" phases when it comes to Grateful Dead concerts and music. In the early 1970s in particular they were untouchable in terms of their stage shows, Yet by 1995 as Jerry Garcia's health declined they were listless and mediocre, sadly burned out after endless touring and management pressures. In this sense the 1990 tour of the US and Canada, is considered by many Deadheads, as their last great tour. There are already plenty of recordings from this period not least a massive 23 CD box set and specific concerts such as "Dozin" at the Knick", "Spring 1990" and selections from the earlier official live release "Without a Net". On that album one track stands head and shoulders above the rest namely "Eyes of the World" which is included here, This sees the great jazz saxophonist Branford Marsalis join the band on stage to exchange solos with Jerry Garcia. It is electrifying and has tantalised Dead fans ever since.

Amazingly this was the first time Marsalis had played with the Dead and it was a revelation. As Marsalis has stated "What I experienced was what I remembered music to be in my younger years, something that I'd felt was lost long ago. Process over product. No set lists, light shows and costumes required, but music first" He had actually come up to play on "Bird Song" and then depart, but the band insisted that Marsalis stay for the whole of the second set which is here in all its glory.

this live recording features branford marsalis on saxaphone on all except the first few tracks and is more jazzy than pretty much anything they had done previously .the saxaphone improvisation is lovely to hear and mr.Marsalis either knew these tunes or is very quick to catch on to what was happening(probably the latter?).when the band get very abstract at the end of Dark star ,the music becomes like freeform jazz so is not easy listening , but when you listen to how the instruments respond to each other it makes sense .the drum solo after dark star leading into the very spacey jam is also interesting and not at all boring as some drum solos can be(although bill the drummer is very rarely boring being one of the best drummers on the planet).
definitely recommended, this is not just another late period live show due to the aforementioned extra band member

Musically I completely agree with the other review: this is pretty much essential. The only downside to the release is it's just the CDs with no booklet. GD releases usually have some sort of an essay with related pictures, and as they've been publishing interviews with Branford online as part of the lead-up promotion I was expecting that to be replicated here. The music's still incredible; it just makes replacing your bootleg a little less essential than it could have been.

A beautiful version of this much sought after show from the Dead's 25th anniversary tour, Towards the end of their illustrious career for sure but nevertheless a superb example of where they were towards the end - not quite as good as ever but still with plenty of substance and creativity.

I won't go into the deeper whys and wherefores with this, yes it's classic later period Dead, and yes Branford Marsalis takes the jamming one stage furthur.
But…….could somebody not just have unplugged Brent Mydland's vocal microphone ? He doesn't sing so much as yell, in every song, and it gets very annoying, very quickly.

That aside it remains pretty much an essential purchase.

If you like the Grateful Dead then you will not be disappointed. One of the better live albums of which there are plenty to 'pick' from.
