Another rare studio tape from the days of Bob Gurman and Alan Bershaw trading in the 1970s. Nice quality work tapes from Mickey’s barn studio in 1976. Lesh, Hart and Jim McPherson developing the non-Garcia/Hunter parts of the Terrapin Station suite.  Some of these had a jazzier feel than the album versions ended up, but whats really interesting is that McPherson is singing lyrics we never knew existed. I think this is uncirculated but if more or better quality exists please share it. I like these other parts and wish the band had explored them more on stage.  -Rob
