"I have an old CD player that has a feature that I have not seen since. It's called "index" and indicates which portion of a subdivided track (such as Terrapin Station) you are listening to. By watching this "index" number along with the track timings, I came up with the following:This makes a lot of sense. And it is consistent with the timings given for the individual tracks in Ihor Slabicky's Compleat Grateful Dead Discography. Ihor also refers to a "Specially Banded For Airplay" version with the "Terrapin" side pressed with bands separating the songs."I know this is somewhat different from what is commonly accepted, but I'm quite sure this is accurate. Terrapin is the main theme, Terrapin Transit is the spacey transition (makes sense), and At a Siding includes both the instrumental part (which is the music for L'Alhambra, thought to be Terrapin Transit) and the lyrical part. Terrapin Station does not include the main instrumental portion that follows."
