Mickey Hart

Grace Slick, Paul Kantner, Barry Melton, David Freiberg, Jerry Garcia, Steven Stills, John Cipollina and others all played on this magnificent album of Mickey Hart's from 1972, Rolling Thunder. This song, which reminds me of Traffic or Fairport Convention, never got its just due. It was written by Peter Monk and C.J. Stetson. Monk (1937-1992), born Peter Zimels, was an ordained buddhist monk.

I always loved this Alton Kelley cover illustration, one of his and Stanley's best.
