On other Happy The Man releases, Track 2 is spelt, "New York Dream's Suite". Both the CD and the back cover of this release spell it as "Dreams' "
Death's Crown and New York Dreams' Suite were recorded in the rehersal room at the band house on New York Ave., Harrisonburg, VA during the last half of 1974. Merlin Of The High Places was recorded in the rehersal room at the band house on Kenmore St., Arlington, VA in early 1976.
From the Cuneiform web site:
"Composed & performed in late 1974, Death's Crown was written as a collaborative work with dancers, actors, lighting & coordinated slide shows - a multi-media event staged at a local dinner theatre in their original hometown of Harrisonburg, VA. The piece was performed several times, but was not a regular part of their repertoire, although parts of the work were regularly performed by the band in concert. Rehearsal tapes of the band performing Death's Crown were recently found & this release marks the first time that any of this material has ever been heard on record."
