The group recorded Robert Hunter's Alligator Moon Suite in 1976 for the Alligator Moon album which was not released. In A Box of Rain: Lyrics 1965-1973 the lyrics for the suite are preceded by Hunter's note;
The Alligator Moon suite was recorded but never released by the band Comfort in 1976. A ballet was choreographed for it and we performed the whole show three times, most notably at the Hooker's Ball - the last occasion of that peculiarly San Francisco annual celebration.
Two tracks by Comfort, Hooker's Ball and Promontory Rider, that were originally intended for the Alligator Moon LP were subsequently included on the 1982 Robert Hunter compilation Promontory Rider: A Retrospective Collection
