Subsequently, Godchaux co-wrote songs with Lowell George (of Little Feat) and Robert Hunter.The cover features the Godchaux's son Zion. Garcia provided drawings representing his [Zion's] thoughts.

I forgot all about this LP. I'm gonna pull it out and give a listen tomorrow. I saw the K&D band with Garcia in August of 1975 at the GAMH (Great American Music Hall). Very good show, if I recall correctly Bill Kreutzmann was on drums.Thanks for keeping the music ALIVE!
