Ben Harper & The Blind Boys of Alabama Setlist 1969-12-31 - Apollo Theater - Harlem, NY
Ben Harper and The Blind Boys of Alabama played a sold out show at the legendary Apollo Theater in Harlem. Ben started the show with the instrumental "11th Commandment", during which the Blind Boys took the stage. They started into "Well Well Well" and played a whole set together. Then for the encore, BHIC came out and played "Where Could I Go", and were again joined by the Blind Boys for "There Will Be A Light" and "Satisfied Mind." Finally after a solo acoustic number from Ben, The Innocent Criminals re-emerged and played for another hour, sans the Blind Boys! "If I Could Hear My Mother Pray Again" was replayed after a false start. The event was recorded and the portion with the Blind Boys is available on the "Live at the Apollo" DVD and international CD.
