It took an extra load of exotic matter to pry open the door into the 4th dimension, but 1974 was worth every erg. We enjoyed some 'heyday of Southern Rock' tunes, including a tribute song to the genre, a little bit of metaphysical boogie and stuff that was impossible to classify despite my best efforts. We relived the beginning of mind twists that the Cube of Rubik and Dungeons and Dragons started and remembered again the helicopter ride that took Nixon into resignation sunset after Watergate.
