Widespread Panic busted out Allman Brother Band’s “Mountain Jam” for the first time in, wait for it, 2,744 shows ago. Widespread last played the ABB epic tune back on April 27, 1988.
After nearly 30 years, Widespread Panic followed Jimmy Herring’s Mountain Jam tease in the middle of “The Last Straw” and busted into a full-on 10 minute Mountain Jam.
Jimmy is no stranger to the Allman Brothers catalogue. The Allman Brothers Band’s Summer Tour 2000 featured Jimmy Herring as part of the ABB lineup where he would jam with Derek Trucks on 30+ minute “Mountain Jams.”
