The Seven And Only Seven Terrapin Encores, 1977-1991

After opening show one, and closing the  first set with a medley in show two, Terrapin returns as an encore on the last night

I always liked Steely Dan records, as far back as the Dead.  They rarely played live, but I like this little set from March 1974 in Los Angeles.  Give it a listen here

RIP Walter

Donna Jean Returns: Bonnaroo 2016
