I'm sitting here listening to Mountain Jam from 8/9/03 and got to thinking about the song a little bit. It's probably my favorite ABB song because it can take on such a life of it's own (as do a lot of the other songs of course).

So what is your favorite version of this song? I'm always searching for more recordings of this song from any era of the band.

I've never been a huge fan of the tune, but the version on the Ludlow Garage set is incredible.

The one from 9-23-00 with Derek and Jimmy is a little different but one of my favorites. Especially the last 10 mins. Just very uplifting and melodic.

Very good so far. Keep them coming.

There is a section in the Fillmore East recording that is just amazing for me. From about the 27:20 to the 31:00 mark Duane does such a beautiful solo. You can hear him developing it on the Atlanta International Pop Festival cd. I think it's the version with Johnny Winter.

That solo just blows me away every time.

The version on Eat a Peach is the one I'm talking about. That's the one from the Fillmore.

That is a great version. I really like the newer versions a lot too. The one I was listening to from Charlotte earlier when I originally posted this is really good. It has a bit of a different flavor than the older versions. Derek and Warren really play well together.

I love the mountain jam from the Atlanta Pop Festival (disc 2) for several reasons. Most of all, Barry plays a bass solo that just pounds your brain. Amazing stuff.

3/13/71 Fillmore

5/1/73 Nassau Col.

8/21/04 Tweeter, Mansfield

Those are the ones that come immediately to mind -- so do

2/11/70 Fillmore, 7/26/70 Stonybrook, 3/20/71 Warehouse, 9/16/71 Warehouse

also 1/25/72 Atlanta -- wish I had a good copy of this -- BO outdoes even himself

have never heard 3/18/06 Beacon but so many love this version -- it's gotta be transcendent

None but none however will top the EAP version -- music in its purest most brilliant & unaffected form

The Fillmore version is by many people- the definitive version of Mountain Jam. It is one of my personal favorite versions too.

6-17-00 (Aberdeen, MD), first time I heard Derek play it, was told by the guy I was sitting next to that it was one of the first times they played it since Duane died (the 2nd Set doesn't count in my head, because it's in the coda ending of Jessica).

8-20-06 (Atlanta, GA), They did You Don't Love Me> Mountain Jam much like it was done on LAFE. Kofi came out during Oteil's bass solo & played along with him, which was awesome. Warren & Derek blazed equally during all of it.

The Chuck/Lamar era had them palying it. There's a ver. on the vol.4 archive release.

The one on Eat A Peach, recorded at The Fillmore East, on CD, not the LP version...

It's tattooed on my brain.

Yep, it was a great day when this came out in uninterrupted fashion for the whole 33 min
I gotta say though, I always loved the way the drums came thundering from out of nowhere to kick off Side IV & Berry's solo!

I've heard some great ones, both live and recorded. But I have been raving over the rendition on Ludlow Garage ever since I bought the CD a month or so ago. The interplay between Dickey and Duane is phenomenal to me.

Too many good ones to picks, but here are a couple that stand out to me....

Old school - Fillmore or EAP (both were extraordinary)

New school - Beacon Theatre 3/25/01 (the work they did after drums was simply amazing)
