I love this record, especially the Terrapin Suite. I wish Garcia had set the whole thing to music and played it with the Dead.

I still play "Prodigal Town" on guitar after all these years. The second verse is so great:

The seasonal change, you can tell by the rain
Though the leaves never flame, it is Fall
I hear Vivaldi come drifting on by
From a ladies' quartet down the hall
Give it its due
It's where I met you
And you were my reason to stay
In a Prodigal Town

Thanks for posting this.
