Exclusive! Hear the Grateful Dead perform "The Wheel" live from 1990

Following our exclusive stream last week of the Grateful Dead and Branford Marsalis playing "Bird Song" live at Nassau Coliseum in 1990, we're delighted to be able to present another track from that show.

Scroll down to hear the Dead - once again joined by Marsalis - perform "The Wheel".

In 1990, the Grateful Dead began their 25th anniversary celebrations with a three-week tour through North America’s east coast.

The tour has already been partly documented in the 2012 box set, Spring 1990.

Now the band are releasing a 23-disc boxed set that covers eight complete shows, all previously unreleased, from this historic tour, titled Spring 1990 (The Other One).

The tour also included the show at Nassau Coliseum on March 29, 1990 where they were joined by Marsalis. The show will be included in the Spring 1990 (The Other One) box set and as a stand-alone 3CD release, Wake Up To Find Out: Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY 3/29/1990.

Both the Spring 1990 (The Other One) box set and Wake Up To Find Out: Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY 3/29/1990 will be available through Rhino Records from September 8.

You can pre-order Wake Up To Find Out: Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY 3/29/1990 here.

The 43rd Uncut Playlist Of 2014


Very taken with Africa Express' version of "In C", by Terry Riley, this week. I have a few takes on the piece (50 years old this month, incidentally), the latest being one by Portishead's Adrian Utley from a couple of years back, though I still probably default to what I think is the original...
