Hart and Hunter: Opening the Mystery Box

Richard Gehr, Rolling Stone, 31 May 1996

So what's so mysterious about the Mystery Box?
Mickey Hart: The musical mystery is, How do you marry tuned percussion and voice? And on a metaphorical level, everything that's really important � like the clouds, the sky, and the earth � is a giant mystery. Bob came up with the title. It started as Tribal Space, an extension of Planet Drum.
