Blues for Allah Versions


Inspired by jerlouvis on archive.org, I was curious about the various version of Blues for Allah attempted by the band members after the first three shows in 1975.

It appears there were two Allah-like jams in 1981 in London and 1984 in Marin, you can judge for yourselves those versions.

I was lucky to see this version with the great Phil Q on June 27, 2001 at the Greek in LA (which I drove by less than one hour ago, haha)

All the 2001 versions including the first in Charlotte  https://archive.org/details/2001-04-20.paf.sbd.philleshnet.4230.sbefail.flacf  are worth it with Jimmy and Warren ripping them up.  I was expecting another on New Year's Eve, but the ship had sailed on these in November.

furthur later did four versions including one in 2010 at the Blues for Allah album recreation in Angel's Camp.
