Mountains Of The Moon
Composer: Jerry Garcia / Robert Hunter

Mountains Of The Moon is one of the few tracks on Aoxomoxoa that was not recorded using the then new 16-track technology. This perhaps explains it sparse compared when compared to some of the denser tracks on the album. Garcia spoke about the song in an interview after remixing the album in 1971;
Mountains Of The Moon is still one of my favorite ones I've ever written. I thought it came off like a little gem. On the record as it is now, I've dropped a lot of the junk off it. It sounds more like I hoped it would when we recorded it.
Mountains Of The Moon was only performed about a dozen times between December 1968 and July 1969.
