Merch: Terrapin Station (Suite) by Various Artists (vinyl LP)


A special limited edition 12" vinyl of the 15+ minute 'Terrapin Station (Suite)' featuring members of Grizzly Bear, The National, and So Percussion with three additional songs by Bonnie 'Prince' Billy, TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe, Sonic Youth's Lee Ranaldo and Bryce Dessner of The National. Full tracklist and credits below. 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, Sō 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.
