i remember experimentin g back in 74. what a great song.i must be an ol hippie.

A shining tribute to the band. 1974 would not be the same without it. been there I should know. It is a shame that modern musicians do not have the abilities of this band. Now I know why my parents hated my music....the new stuff cannot TOUCH the greatness of the Grateful Dead or others. more is the shame of it. Very fortunate to be an old Hippy that was there.
I heard them play this at one of their last shows at Giants Stadium. It was a spiritual moment.
There's something about it that I just find so magical, beautiful and comforting. That was my last show. Jerry passed soon after and closed a chapter of my life. I hear that song and it brings me back to that hot summer day where the beer was cold, the crowd was kind and the band played......





Hey spiralformat t , I was at that Philly show, and couldn't believe my hears. I still get chills when I think about it. This is one of my favorites; the transitions throughout this song are unreal. Jerry's guitar solo is one of his best. I haven't seen any of the "shows" since Jerry passed away and don't plan on it. I want to remember the Dead I grew up listening to and have loved for over thirty years.
The Mars Hotel casette tape was in the tape deck of my car almost all the throughout my graduation summer, 1978, and this song is the one that got played a lot. It was a summer of driving around the cascades and to the Oregon coast continually. That's what I think of every time I hear it. This song has so much packed into it. Great singing from Phil Lesh, nice transitions from a ballad state to a hard rocking bridge/jam segment and a nicely drawn out, trance-like ending.
i have three songs to be played at my funeral Box of Rain, Unbroken Chain and Contrary to Ordinary by Jerry Jeff Walker. My favorite Grateful Dead. Saw that Charlotte '95 show when they played it. I could not believe it, at that time, I did not know they had played it a few nights earlier in Philly or Chicago first.
This has always been one of my absolute favorites! Jerry's solo is one of his all time best. Plus it's always great to here Phil sing. Some people don't realize how talented he is.
My first psycheldic experience was listening to this song & watching colorful shooting stars! A goooood night :)
