Grateful Dead ‘Spring 1990 · So Glad You Made It’ gets vinyl reissue

Friday Music is releasing the Grateful Dead’s Spring 1990 – So Glad You Made It on 180-gram Audiophile 4 LP on February 20th. This super limited edition treasure trove highlights selections from five of their finest shows from this legendary tour. Filled with twenty unreleased stellar performances, The Grateful Dead’s Jerry Garcia, Bob Weir, Phil Lesh, Brent Mydland, Mickey Hart and Bill Kruetzmann truly radiate with some of their finest playing and singing ever, making this a wonderful listen and collectible album for years to come.

Mastered for audiophile vinyl by Jeffery Norman with Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records, Hollywood, CA, this boxed set is truly a welcomed addition to any fan’s Dead collection. The set will be packaged in a stunning box set, with Wes Lang’s artwork detailed beautifully, with a poly lined LP sleeve to preserve the rich details of each of the four 180-gram vinyl albums, including custom LP label artwork provided for each vinyl album. The set also includes an LP art insert suitable for framing.

For those familiar with the Grateful Dead’s live performance history, the spring 1990 tour represents an important zenith, one fully equal to the golden ages of Europe ’72 and spring ’77. During this truly epic three-week spring fling, the band played as good as it ever had, with energy, sophistication and joy.

Recorded during the Grateful Dead’s 25th anniversary, the band played as though it was on a mission to prove something. The pieces just fell into place that spring – impassioned vocals, the Brent/Jerry mind-meld, the MIDI expansion of the band’s sonic vocabulary, and a bunch of new tunes and choice revivals.
