Mountain Jam
Composer: Donovan / Grateful Dead / Allman Brothers Band

Mountain Jam is a jam based on the Donovan song There Is A Mountain which was performed a number of times by the Grateful Dead. The initial use of tune within a jam is thought to have been in the early part of 1968. Lengthy jams based on the tune were played in 1970 and once in 1973, the latter with members of the Allman Brothers and The Band.

The Allman Brothers Band also developed an instrumental piece based on the Donovan song which was called Mountain Jam. It is thought that they introduced this piece into their repertoire after hearing the Grateful Dead incorporate the song into a jam.

The Allman Brothers Band played their version of Mountain Jam with Jerry Garcia sitting in, on December 31, 1973 and also with Jerry Garcia and Bob Weir sitting in on July 17, 1972 at Gaelic Park, Bronx, NY.
