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).

Among the dates they played a show at Nassau Coliseum on March 29, 1990 where they were joined by Branford 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.

You can listen to a recording of “Bird Song” by the Dead and Marsalis from the Nassau show by scrolling down the page.

“When I agreed to sit in with the Dead in 1990, I didn’t know what to expect, aurally or visually,” says Marsalis. “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. It’s an experience I will always remember with great fondness.”

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.
