March 25, 1977
Finished the new "Terrapin" lyrics last week after a good month
of 8-12 hour days at the typewriter plus dreaming it when I rested - only
to find it possibly won't be required and in any event part of the tune
has been changed...well, that's rock & roll. Over 40 versions of one
of the lyrics -
The first part was performed as an encore the 3rd night at Winterland last
week. Bill Graham told me he had never before seen an audience respond to
an unfamiliar tune in such a fashion. They did indeed seem taken with it.
Took my bicycle to Woodside last Tuesday and rode around Alpine Road &
Los Trancos Woods all afternoon. Riding every day I can and pulling back
into shape slowly but surely.
Much question of what to do next. Acacia blossoms now dingey and Summer
is coming early.
