@ Almost Dead Debut
# With an ìAbduction Poseî (Benevento Russo Duo) Tease & a short King Solomonís Marbles Jam
$ Scott on Pedal Steel
& With a Duo Jam
* Dave On Trumpet
+ Terrapin Station Teases (SM)
## Finishes the version from 10.3.15 which included the first 3 verses & left off at the bridge, which was not sung last night (The ìLady Finger, dipped in moonlightî part). This version started with the bridge, which tonight included the lyrics, and the bridge was played in 11/8 time (Same time signature as The Eleven). Once they went back into the verses, (beginning with the ì Did he doubt or did he try?î line), the tune reverted to its conventional time signature of 4/4.
$$ Multiple Terrapin Station Teases
%% Multiple Dark Star Teases. Also included a short Jam based on the cord progression of ìThe National Anthemî by Radiohead, although it was played in a different key
^^ First time played, Stevie Wonder Cover, no lyrics
