Ya learn something new every day.
Anyone else hear the theme for PeeWee's Playhouse in the beginning? I asked my wife what she heard and that is what she said also.
As a fellow percussionist, I love everything Mickey has ever done. Thanks RP, Been a while since I heard this.
Thanks for the info Dave. I guess that's how they "get off with a different song title." :lol: :lol:
Haven't heard this one in quite awhile and I own it! Thanks for bringing back to my frontal lobes. Reminds me of many a spleef.

Indeed it is. Read this from AllMusicGuide:
During a lull in activities with the Grateful Dead, percussionist and ethnomusicologist Mickey Hart joined with tabla player, Zakir Hussain, son of longtime Ravi Shankar accompanist, Alla Rakha, and students of the Ali Akbar College of Music to form the heavily percussive Diga Rhythm Band in 1975. Recording their sole album, Diga, in Hart's barn/studio in Novata, California, the 11-piece group was augmented by Jerry Garcia on guitar and Jim McPherson, Kathy McDonald and David Freiberg on vocals. One tune on the album, "Happiness Is Drumming (Fire on the Mountain) went on to be a staple at concerts by the Grateful Dead, the Other Ones and Hart's Planet Drum.

Hey, this is the Dead's Fire on the Mountain...EXACTLY. Where do they get off with a different song title? I'm confused.
