Well known as an extended jam played by the Allman Brothers Band, based on a theme from Donovan's "First There Is A Mountain." But the idea of using this theme seems to have originated with the Grateful Dead, who started using it in the late 60's - see, for example, the passage at about 9:00 into the version of "Alligator" on "Anthem Of The Sun."
