hophead turned me on to the long version of Statesboro Blues that the original band ocassionally played. The Ludlow Garage version is the only one I've heard. Do other recordings exist? If so, I want them! Statesboro Blues has been my favorite ABB song for as far back as I can remember. Now to hear a version with even more is so cool. I'm ready to trade if anyone has a show with this version.[Edited on 11/21/2002 by SantaCruzBluz]

If I'm not mistaken I believe one of the Atlanta Pop shows, 7/3/70 I think, opens with Stateboro blues and they play the version we are accustomed to but then where it normally ends they start back up and Duane takes another solo which adds another few minutes to the song. I may be wrong about the date but I know I just listened to one like that recently and it was the first time I had heard the song extended that way. Took me by surprise.

I just checked and Indeed I was right but it only adds 2 minutes making it about 6 minutes where the normal ending spot would have been at 4 minutes. If you don't have it let me know.

To the best of my knowledge, Duane played the extended version only during about a 3-month period in 1970. The tapes that survive from that period are 4-4-70 Ludlow, 4-28-70 Stony Brook, 5-2-70 Swarthmore, and 7-3-70 Atlanta Pop.

My memory may be faulty and I have not gone back to verify this info, but these four shows are certainly a good place to start.

I also heard Derek play the extended version of Stateboro Blues once in 1991 when he was 12 years old.

If anyone hasn't heard one of these versions, it is well worth seeking. It is a real eye-opener hearing Duane stretch out on what later became one of his trademark songs.
