Harry Hood: Did you know?
The music for the song was written during Trey Anastasio and Jon Fishman’s 1985 travels in Europe. While on Pelekas Beach in Greece, they took LSD and decided to swim out to a raft just offshore. A violent storm came in and almost drowned Anastasio. After the near-death experience, Trey sat on the beach and wrote the music to “Harry Hood”

First listening, already hooked !
Trippy as hell and pretty awesome from beginning to end.
Maybe my favorite off the new album. Love how it segues right into the title track too.
