Turn It Up Tuesday!


October 19, 2010 by esarsea

I had to check myself with this week’s Turn It Up Tuesday before I posted too many videos. There are so many great Gov’t Mule songs, so many Mule personalities. Not to mention the amazing covers Warren Haynes and the band work into their live shows – everything from the Beatles to Black Sabbath. Gov’t Mule is one of my favorites; a sort of rock, power blues and blues-rock jam band, clearly influenced by Warren’s ongoing stint in the Allman Bros Band.

For me it all started with Gov’t Mule’s Live at Roseland Ballroom, one of the greatest live power trio recordings ever made in my opinion. Live at Roseland Ballroom also features some outstanding bass playing by the late great Allen Woody. Shortly after that I picked up Dose, and it was all over. Gov’t Mule rocks my world – take the time to check them out if you haven’t already…and turn it up!

And finally this bonus studio recording from Gov’t Mule’s The Deep End. Written by Warren Haynes with guest appearances by Gregg Allman and Derek Trucks.

Warren also penned the early Bonamassa show-stopper If Heartaches Were Nickels, which appeared on Joe’s debut studio album A New Day Yesterday (and on the follow up release A New Day Yesterday Live).

    For some reason, the second vid is blank for me. But, that’s okay.

    I’m not a fan of JGP, however I LOVE If Heartaches Were Nickels…definitely one of the better songs by either Haynes or Bonamassa. It’s simply a great tune.

      Maybe it was a temporary glitch on youtube? Seems fine here now. I love Warren’s slide playing on JGP, but different strokes as they say… :-)

    Warren is the Man. I really love By a Thread, among so much more. Stepping Lightly, the solo and groove leading up to it really blow my mind

    Warren, Matt, Danny and Jurgen are the best in the business of Rockin Guitar driven Blues. Dose is a classic.
    Got to party with them in Portland at The Roseland Theater. (Different Roseland than album)
    Last Mule show was epic at Red Rocks over Labor Day weekend.
    What an experience!
