Author Notes

GUITAR: nsw1-6
 
The guitar solo was extracted from a live recording and pasted over the loose 3/4 spacy vamp performed by bass, drums, and keyboards. The drumming is my favorite performance from Vinnie Colaiuta.
In the story, "He Used to Cut the Grass" is a transitional between "Outside Now" and "Packard Goose." Joe is now out of jail and finds the world pretty boring now that music has been made illegal. He drifts more and more into a semi-catatonic state, dreaming the guitar notes he cannot play anymore.

No prob. Vinnie's drumming on this album is considered one of the all time great performances. It's was a bitch to chart believe me.

Woohoo, thank you!
