Lyrics to "Blues For Allah" song by Grateful Dead: Arabian wind, The needle's eye is thin, The ships of state sail on mirage, And drown in sand, Out i. .It will not grow a thing; Taste eternity the swords sing: Blues of Allah In 'sh'Allah. The thousand stories have come round to one again, Arabian night, Our Gods pursue their fight, What fatal flowers of darkness bloom from seeds of light

Blues For Allah: Sand Castles & Glass Camels/Unusual Occurrences In The Desert. 8. Groove (Instrumental Studio Outtake). 9. Right after achieving their finest achievement with the highly praised album From The Mars Hotel in 1974, The Grateful Dead would take their creative improvisational step even further a year later when they released this excellent first rate masterwork that again proved that The Dead could still showcase creative ideas for there wall of sound

Album · 1975 · 7 Songs. The mid-'70s were a time of great creativity for the members of The Grateful Dead, both within the group and on solo ventures. They enjoyed a brief hiatus from the road as they assembled this fine album, which also benefitted from the return of second drummer Mickey Hart and his exotic rhythms and techniques. The break from touring meant the players were hungry to get their kicks playing together once again.

Blues for Allah was the final studio album on the Grateful Dead's original independent label. Grateful Dead Records' distribution partner United Artists Records had greater involvement in the rights and publication for this album than previously (. releasing the album in foreign markets on the UAR label). This was an attempt to combat counterfeiting and because UAR was helping fund the completion of the Grateful Dead Movie in return for further distribution rights and the completion of a soundtrack album.
