Here's the ultimate "for completists only" studio outtake from the "Blues For Allah" album sessions. It's Jerry Garcia and Mickey Hart creating sound effects intended as background for the title track. My tape had it notated as "Sound FX for Allah", so I used that to name the actual track. You'll clearly hear a little verbal exchange between Jerry and Mickey at the beginning (and again at the end). Otherwise, I may have doubted the validity of this recording.
Jerry: It's weird.
Mickey: It certainly is.
As far as I know, this track is new to circulation as of January 2021. - Alan Bershaw

As a stand-alone piece of avant-garde, it absolutely works. As a companion piece to your myriad other compilations from the Ace sessions in ‘75, it’s an essential. Jerry and Mickey = amazing innovators.
