This reminds me of high school days playing the reel to reel blasting grand funk with the windows open at my house. ! A most impressive time in my life and loving this music from way back then !

GFR fully over-packed concerts from southern tip of Texas all thru Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado & damn near the entire state of California, I followed them for 2 1/2 weeks tripping on 25 the whole time.

This song lives up to the word EPIC. I never turn this one of when it comes on and have been known to finish it out in the car. To me, it is an introspectiv e song about all the journeys we engage in life from a personal journey, to an emotional journey, to a spiritual journey, and the various realizations we find along the way. Life has friend and foe. We our our own captain. Chase your dreams and destiny. Peace.

The bass riff is great. I've seen a ton of cover bands play the bass riff incorrectly.
