This song took a whole side of an LP! The album cover really matches the song, Trippy as f*ck!! Also a great smoking song -_-

With one song they gave birth to experimental , heavy metal, trance, acid rock, southern rock, jam band, and many other elements of what became rock in the 70's. I know it's debatable but this song represents a total transition in music history along with other pivotal songs of the most creative period in rock history.

The single is all right but the full version is ridiculous.

Saw them live in Hawaii don't remember exactly when. But do remember a cloud of smoke drifting over the room. Good times.

Wow, talk about flashbacks. Had to create a station around this sound for my youngest to hear. All the other music that comes with it are so fantastic. You didn't need to be stoned to get into this one. It just took you away. Fave ever.

A classic from a halcyon time...a mythical bird, usually identified with the kingfisher, said to breed about the time of the winter solstice in a nest floating on the sea, and to have the power of charming winds and waves into calmness.

I read the song was really the guys doing a sound check.
of course it was re-mixed by the producer. brings back good mem's.

SLAYER does a kick a** version of this song. Not saying it's better, just kick a**. :)

Great jam song. The very first song I learned in the very first band I played keys in. I never get tired of it. All the solos are great--the drum solo is iconic!

In a gadda da amazing....t h e live version has an even richer sound. I'd like to see people dancing and jamming to it at my funeral.

You know, everyone says a lot about this song, but the truth is that this is just one really cool jam. All the bs about it is jealousy. I love this song and always have. I learned the drum solo at 15 in 1971, as best I could, cuz Wipeout just didnt' cut it any more. Awesome stuff.
Report as inappropriate
Yes, the drums are great!
I don't know why the breakdown after the drum solo that continues thru the organ solo has not been sampled over and over. That is a good groove. It goes on for several minutes, you can't miss it!

this was not a hacked down version. it was still 17 minutes, and I loved every drum beat to it.

Yeah, I like the song. But I am rarely in the mood for several minutes of drum solo so I had to thumbs-down it.

When you find five notes and put them together to create the best five-notes bass riff ever, I say: "stick with it, my psychedelic friend, just stick with it, it's O.K., other notes just don't matter..."
