Terrapin Station (Suite) (12in Vinyl)
Not yet reviewed.
'Day Of The Dead' - a celebration of the Grateful Dead's music - is currently available as a 5CD set. Now 4AD will release a special limited edition 12" vinyl of the four song 'Terrapin Station (Suite).'
Featuring members of Grizzly Bear, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and Bryce Dessner of The National. The album cover was designed and donated by acclaimed visual artist and Pioneer Works founder, Dustin Yellin.
The Grateful Dead's 'Terrapin Station', found on the album bearing the same name, was the first time the Dead unveiled a more symphonic and progressive sound. In addition to the featured vocalists, Aaron and Bryce Dessner recreated 1977's entire Terrapin Station with the help of Josh Kaufman, Conrad Doucette, S? Percussion, and the Brooklyn Youth Chorus. To compliment the full recreation of the 'Terrapin Flyer' section, Bryce Dessner expanded the piece with an additional two minutes of original composition.
A Day of the Dead live performance will take place this summer at the second annual Eaux Claires Festival (12th - 13th August) featuring Jenny Lewis, Matthew Houck (Phosphorescent), Lucius, Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, Sam Amidon, Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Matt Berninger, Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Bruce Hornsby, Ruban Nielson (Unknown Mortal Orchestra) and The National, who all appear on the record.
