Grateful Dead Philly 89' DVD/CD set to be released in April

From the deep, dark depths of the Grateful Dead archives comes a new DVD/3-CD set called "Crimson White & Indigo," that captures the legendary band's July 7, 1989 performance at Philadelphia's JFK stadium.

The show was the final rock concert at JFK stadium and is the follow-up show to the band's July 4, 1989, performance that was released under the 2005 DVD/CD set "Truckin' up to Buffalo". The DVD/CD set includes 19 tracks mixed from the original 24-track analog tapes in both Dolby Digital stereo and 5.1 surround (for the DVD), and mastered in HDCD (for the CD). The DVD/CD set's packaging includes loads of great photos by Bob Minkin and an essay from veteran Grateful Dead observer Steve Silberman.

According to Rhinio, “The Philadelphia concert offers a snapshot of the Dead’s 1989 tour, where the band played to some of its biggest audiences ever, a result of the group’s only Top 40 hit, “Touch Of Grey” from 1987’s In The Dark. During this tour, the band was recording the follow-up to that album, Built To Last, which is an important reason why the jamming heard here is particularly fluid and concise. In fact, the band played a pair of songs from the upcoming album, the aching ballad “Standing On The Moon” and the poignant “Blow Away,” a song cowritten by keyboardist Brent Mydland, who sadly died a year later.”

Crimson White & Indigo is scheduled for release on April 20.
