At A Siding - The Grateful Dead - Terrapin Station (Vinyl, LP, Album)

I got this album years ago on vinyl, but packed away my record player a while back. The first half will please any existing Dead Heads, but the second half is really their masterpiece, with a medley that picks up the gauntlet thrown by The Beatles on Abbey Road.

The poetry of Robert Hunter particularly shines through in the "Lady with a Fan" opening sequence. For anyone keen on quality experimental songwriting, this album's well worth a listen. Report abuse. Another one for completionists? Like the notion of "a man is a man for all of that" and "save your tears for the Day" the greater glory of Christ's return. In , romance was very much a walk in and walk out affair, as young people struggled to establish themselves in the world.

In the same year, there was a bit of a reduction in selection of good music; so this album both musically and lyrically can seem like a redemptive choice for that year.

Reviewer: c-freedom - - December 25, Subject: Equinox is a tune without a home. To tell the story of Terrapin Station had to require more effort from Jerry then let's say a song like "Don't Ease Me In" Equinox is a part of the Terrapin time period but everything Jerry had to say musically is captured in the Terrapin Suite at that time.

And then some Hey, I have no problem with the song Equinox but by the time Shakedown comes down in 78 it no longer fits with the Dead's flow. If Jerry wanted to tinker with the song he could have played it with JGB Also I am pretty sure Phil had a hand in the writing of Equinox and much of what Phil does is complex AKA-Unbroken Chain it may have been something that just required more effort to bring along than could be spared at the time.

That is my main point also lyrically -From my perspective as a singer I have to be into what I am singing. Maybe Jerry just did not have any deep interest in the tune. I know many people despised DAY JOB yet it held Garcia's interest regularly for a few years and I would have to say he liked exploring those lyrics even if many heads did not.

Worth a listen! Reviewer: njpg - favorite favorite favorite favorite - February 20, Subject: Some good stuff. Nice to check out on a rainy day. Reviewer: Sedula - favorite favorite favorite favorite - June 12, Subject: Performing Equinox Chris Freedom Said: "If Terrapin was not such a demanding tune lyrically perhaps Garcia would have taken Equinox out on the road. What does performing Terrapin have to do with performing another song? If they wanted to play Equinox they would have. Why would the lyrics of another tune have any impact on performing a different tune?

That makes no sense to me, as a musician by trade.

Gotta hear Terrapin. Reviewer: jdesrochers - favorite favorite favorite favorite - December 19, Subject: thank you this is a great recording that i have not heard in a long time. Thanks for posting. Reviewer: Chris Freedom - - March 30, Subject: Equinox If Terrapin was not such a demanding tune lyrically perhaps Garcia would have taken Equinox out on the road. It is a nice enough tune and "the mercy of a fool line" evokes classic dead imagery, but if you listen to the 'Fire' you can hear that Garcia has not even settled on which of Hunters lyrics to use on Fire on the Mountain.

Equinox gets eclipsed by Fire and Terrapin. Reviewer: garp - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - November 16, Subject: Fire worth a DL!
