The best song ever I can listen to it all day long
Played this version in Nam a lot
Great drum solo.
I am a 66 year old retired Hippie, Brings back a lot of smoke filled memories !!!
Dangerously beautiful from a great late 60s band. Wow Pandora!!
Takes me back in my childhood
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.
The Number ONE1. Song of the late 60's Psychodelic Generation! I KNOW! I WAS THERE!
@annette: In the Garden of Eden by I. Ron Butterfly. I loved that too.
rogerblocke
One of my all time favorite songs! I was an 8 year old drummer when this came out.
Really awesome and long song but not the longest the longest one I know of its mountain jam by the allman brothers it's about 33 minutes long.
Brilliant!- To the Original Player!!Not reduced to Cartoon!!!
LOVE THIS ON THE SIMPSONS!!(t h e church lady!!!!! on the organ!!!)-Gr e a t ! ! !
This is my valentine Day song! lol
Yes the 17 minute version !!!!!!!!!
This song is amazing
I remember rocking out to this song in class. Ron Bushy's drum solo rocks
I play the melody of this song all thine on the Marimba. I'm gald pandora has the 17 minute version . I love the drum it is awesome . RIP Lee Dorman
Love the Simpsons ep where Bart had the church sing this.
RIP Dorman.
Takes me back to Colorado Springs, junior high 1970........ m a n I feel old!
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.

Total talent when it takes you to a different place, if only for 17 minutes! I don't know about you, but i'd go back in heart beat!
It was 68,Nov,on a friday nite ,my friend Art Steinbeck,an d my self staying at a friends apt in So.Calif Stoned on Whites listening to this song and Chambers Bros,until the we hrs. of the morn.
Hey Pandora Wheres the Drums on this song?
14 hour drum solo!
drwarthsr
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.
one of the best jams of all time!

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.
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.
this is a classic song and sound you can never get enough
A classic. the record oozez psyhedelia!
Geez Rob...geez!
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.
this is the chopped down hacked off short radio version where is the long version ?

They don't make 'em like they used to.
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..."
limogypsy1
my first born was conceived to this song what a great way to start a life
F**king trippy.
WOW, the whole album side, that was very cool then! The drum solo, the organ solo, the "elephants", the memories!!!!
mdelisle
First acid trip 1969. This song always takes me back, even now.
cprofito
Every time i'm in a bar with aone, two, or three piece band I always request the song in its the long version!
@Graybeard: AMEN!!! This song is... wow. Its just one of those you want to listen to over, and over, and over, and... well, you get the point already. Awesome song.
