FZ is not known to have ever played "Blessed Relief" live.

There is one circulating Petit Wazoo tape including "Waka/Jawaka," from Passaic NJ on Halloween 72.

Could have been nice. Probably too "easy listening" to play for audiences hungry for rock, though.

just heard the descending opening bar for blessed relief in a live performance,
1974 10 29 Harrisburg, PA about the 23 minute mark in what I'd say was a mislabeled 26:48
Dupree's Paradise. But just that intro bar, a couple times, not the melody or even the horn line that comes in over the top of that intro bar on the GW record version. This improvisation with fz on guitar is more like the end of zoot allures, playful, quieter. Though the pace does not step up as other instruments join in .. and the power on frank's guitar gets cut.
