The origins of the song Blood Stained Banders is not at all unknown. The artist is Jimme Strothers. He was recorded at Goochland Prison Farm in Virginia by Al Lomax, who wrote about it in his 1941 book "Our Singing Country". The song derived from a hymn written by Rev. John Granade around 1800, "Let Thy Kingdom Blessed Savior". Strothers' version was played by Roger Perkins and Tom Hobson in San Francisco, where it was picked up by a young Jorma Kaukonen. A few years later, after becoming the lead guitarist for Jefferson Airplane, Kaukonen's recording of his own version, "O Good Shepherd", was released on their album Volunteers. This version remains a favorite of audiences and fans of Kaukonen's (and Airplane's bassist Jack Cassady's) post-Airplane effort, Hot Tuna. Full details are available in the Wikipedia article "Good Shepherd (song)".
