(Classic Rock) Eight previously-unreleased Grateful Dead shows from 1990 are to be released in a 23-disc box set next month. Spring 1990 (The Other One) is a companion to their sold-out Spring 1990 box set and contains their highly-regarded appearance at the Nassau Coliseum with Branford Marsalis.
The tour saw Jerry Garcia, Mickey Hart, Bill Kreutzmann, Phil Lesh, Brent Mydland and Bob Weir delivering standard tracks, Bob Dylan and Beatles covers and rare renditions of older material, along with pieces from the previous year's album Built To Last - their final studio outing.
Archivist David Lemieux says: "When we produced the first box in 2012 there were a lot of tough choices to make - however, we knew we'd do this second box some day. Now we're able to complete the picture with music that's every bit as good. more on this story
