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).
