Info for Wake Up To Find Out: Nassau Coliseum, Uniondale, NY 3/29/1990

Ihr 25-jähriges Bandjubiläum feierten Grateful Dead im Jahre 1990 mit einer dreiwöchigen Tour an der Ostküste der USA, die von allen „Deadheads“ bis heute als eine der besten Touren der Band bezeichnet wird. Jetzt erscheint in Form eines 3-CD-Sets mit dem Titel „Wake Up To Find Out“ erstmals das komplette Konzert vom 29.03. des Jahres aus dem legendären Nassau Coliseum, bei dem der mehrfach Grammy-ausgezeichnete Saxophonist Brandon Marsalis die Band begleitete.

Das gesamte zweite Set der Show ist ein einziges großes Highlight, insbesondere die atemberaubende Version von Dark Star. Blair Jackson fasst den Moment im Booklet zusammen, in dem er schreibt: „Von allen Gastmusikern, die die Bühne in all den Jahren mit den Deads geteilt haben – und das waren viele und sehr unterschiedliche – hat niemand ihren forschenden Abenteurergeist und ihre Obsession mit wunderbaren Melodien und zugänglichen Strukturen so perfekt verkörpert wie Branford es getan hat.“ Die Performance von „Eyes Of The World“ erschien erstmals auf der 1990er Live-Sammlung „Without A Net“, doch die gesamte Zusammenarbeit in Nassau erblickt nun zum ersten Mal das Licht der Öffentlichkeit.

„Als ich zustimmte, 1990 mit den Deads zu spielen, wusste ich nicht, was mich sowohl klanglich als auch visuell erwartete“, so Marsalis. „Was ich dann erlebte, war wie eine Erinnerung an meine jungen Jahre, etwas, von dem ich das Gefühl hatte, dass es lange her sein musste. Prozess geht über Produkt. Keine Setlist, keine Lightshow und keine Kostüme, aber Musik an erster Stelle. Es ist eine Erfahrung gewesen, an die ich mich immer mit größter Freude erinnern werde.“

„Dabei bestand die Besonderheit dieses Gigs darin, dass als Special Guest erstmals der Sopransaxofonist Branford Marsalis mit von der Partie war, der laut einem aktuellen Interview mit dem amerikanischen Rolling Stone mit dem Songmaterial der Band keineswegs vertraut war. Was Marsalis als Jazzer hingegen beherrschte, war die Kunst der Improvisation, und dies traf sich wiederum mit dem Live- Ansatz der Dead, wie nicht zuletzt die über 18-minütige Dead Go Free Jazz-Version von Dark Star unterstreicht.“ (Good Times)

„Eines der spielfreudig-verschmitzten Dokumente der späten Deads.“ (stereoplay)

From the 1960s until the 1995 death of guitarist, singer-songwriter Jerry Garcia, the Grateful Dead played roughly 2,300 long, freeform concerts that touched down on their own country-, blues and folk –tinged songs, and on a similarly wide range of cover versions. Along the way, they popularized the concept of the jam band, influencing thousands of songwriters and basement improvisers and earning themselves maybe the most loyal fans a rock band have ever had.

Nearly as famous as the band itself were its legions of "Deadheads" — predominantly white men who have lovingly preserved the era that spawned the Dead by emulating their Summer of Love predecessors' philosophy and that period's accoutrements: tie-dye clothing, hallucinogenic drugs, and the Dead's music. These fans supported the band with an almost religious fervor, following the group around the country, trading tapes of live concerts (something the band allowed as long as it wasn't for profit, providing prime spots for tapers at shows), and providing a synergy between band and audience that was unique in rock. In true psychedelic style, the Grateful Dead preferred the moment to the artifact — but to keep those moments coming, the Dead evolved into a far-flung and smoothly run corporate enterprise that, for all its hippie trimmings, drew admiring profiles in the financial and mainstream press.

Lead guitarist Jerry Garcia took up guitar at 15, spent nine months in the Army in 1959, then moved to Palo Alto, where he began his long-standing friendship with Robert Hunter, who late became the Dead's lyricist. In 1962 he bought a banjo and began playing in folk and bluegrass bands, and by 1964 he was a member of Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions, along with Bob Weir, Ron "Pigpen" McKernan, and longtime associates Bob Matthews (who engineered Dead albums and formed the Alembic Electronics equipment company) and John Dawson (later of New Riders of the Purple Sage).

In 1965 the band became the Warlocks: Garcia, Weir, Pigpen, Bill Kreutzmann, and Phil Lesh, a former electronic-music composer. With electric instruments, the Warlocks debuted in July 1965 and soon became the house band at Ken Kesey's Acid Tests, a series of public LSD parties and multimedia events held before the drug had been outlawed. LSD chemist Owsley Stanley bankrolled the Grateful Dead — a name from an Egyptian prayer that Garcia spotted in a dictionary — and later supervised construction of the band's massive, state-of-the-art sound system. The Dead lived communally at 710 Ashbury Street in San Francisco in 1966–67 and played numerous free concerts; by 1967's Summer of Love, they were regulars at the Avalon and Carousel ballrooms and the Fillmore West. MGM signed the band in 1966, and it made some mediocre recordings. The Dead's legitimate recording career began when Warner Bros. signed the band. While its self-titled 1967 debut album featured zippy three-minute songs, Anthem of the Sun (Number 87, 1968) and Aoxomoxoa (Number 73, 1969) featured extended suites and studio experiments that left the band $100,000 in debt to Warner Bros., mostly for studio time, by the end of the 1960s. Meanwhile, the Dead's reputation had spread, and they appeared at the Monterey Pop Festival in 1967 and Woodstock in 1969.

As the Seventies began, the Dead recouped its Warner debt with three comparatively inexpensive albums — Live/Dead (Number 64, 1969) (recorded in concert at San Francisco's Fillmore West in February and March of 1969), Workingman's Dead (Number 27, 1970), and American Beauty (Number 30, 1970). The former featured extended psychedelic explorations, such as the classic "Dark Star," while in sharp contrast the latter two found the Dead writing concise country-ish songs and working out clear-cut, well-rehearsed arrangements. Workingman's Dead (including "Uncle John's Band" [Number 69, 1970] and "Casey Jones") and American Beauty (including "Truckin'" [Number 64, 1971], "Ripple," and "Box of Rain") received considerable FM radio airplay, sold respectably, and provided much of the Dead's concert repertoire.

With a nationwide following, the Dead expanded its touring schedule and started various solo and side projects (aside from the band members' own works, many Dead members also appeared on the half-dozen-plus albums Dead lyricist Robert Hunter began releasing in 1973). The group worked its way up to a 23-ton sound system and a large traveling entourage of road crew, family, friends, and hangers-on — most of whom would later become staff employees complete with health-insurance and other benefits, as the Dead evolved into an efficient and highly profitable corporation. The Dead finished out its Warners contract with a string of live albums including 1971's Grateful Dead, a.k.a. "Skull and Roses" (Number 25), which introduced more concert staples such as "Bertha" and "Wharf Rat." In 1973 the Dead played for over half a million people in Watkins Glen, New York, on a bill with the Band and the Allman Brothers. By then the group had formed its own Grateful Dead Records and a subsidiary, Round, for non-band efforts. Read more: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/artists/the-grateful-dead/biography
