Blair Jackson's review: ****

A limited edition three-CD set put out in 1997 to raise funds for the Dead's prospective Terrapin Station museum/performance space, this beautiful package features the entire 3/15/90 show from the Capitol Centre in Landover, Maryland, which fell on Phil's 50th birthday. It's a rip-roaring good time from beginning to end: The first disc contains fine versions of "Jack Straw," "Sugaree," "Althea," "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" and "Cassidy." The second set, which is spread over two discs, offers "China Cat Sunflower" > "I Know You Rider," a majestic "Terrapin" worthy of naming the CD after, and "Wharf Rat," among other delights.

It's one of those shows where you can hear that the band is having a great time onstage, and their joy and playfulness is infectious. Garcia even plays a few notes of "Happy Birthday" to his bandmate at the close of "Just like Tom Thumb's Blues." The recording by John Cutler is flawless. If I had to choose just one of the four 1990 live CD sets available, I'd take this one.
