There’s an interesting side story about that song “Florida”. My copy of the Tonight’s The Night LP is one of the earlier copies with an (almost) lustrously-flocked textured cover. But it’s missing one of the original inserts, which has on it a rather disturbing story that I hadn’t had a chance to read. I found an image online of that panel of the insert, took a screenshot of it, and saved it for later. A week later, I’m streaming Homegrown off the NYArchives website, and heard the haunting “Florida”, mentally filed it away. Then FINALLY I read the disturbing story on the TTN insert.

Sure enough, the text is the same as Neil’s spoken words of “Florida”. Weird, huh?

Thanks for the reminder, Murph. I totally have that original insert but haven't looked at it in years!
