GREAT STUFF!!!

I discovered Gov't Mule while listening to XM radio when I was driving long haul. This album,along with Volume 2,is what they're all about.

Blues Rock at it's best

Warren Haynes shines in Government Mule. Best bluesy-rock album in a long time.

Bluesy rock with a jam band influence

EMUSIC-00907EFE

Warren Haynes not only toured with the Allman Brothers, he's also touring with the Dead. This strikes me as a band with a lot of influences across hard rock, blues and jam bands like the Dead and Allman Brothers--and it all works wonderfully. Check out their cover of "Soulshine." FANTASTIC.

Effigy. Drool.

Mule cover one of CCR's less-well-known and greatest tracks on this one, and it's not to be missed. "Banks of the Deep End" is also stellar. If you like this, check out the more recent "High and Mighty" as well as "Live With A Little Help From Our Friends" which is an unbelievable live 4-disc set from further back when they had Allen Woody playing with them. It features 30 Days In the Hole, War Pigs, and some other goodness. A band this good that is not afraid to play this many covers, and often surpass the originals, is a great thing. See them live and you won't regret it. See also http://muletracks.com

Cream's legendary jack bruce plays his ass off! this took me back to Wheels of Fire cream's classic 2 lp set. the whole set is good but hearing Bruce again was special. If you never heard Cream down load this just so you'll know why most people consider Jack Bruce the best rock bassist ever.

Part of the trilogy

If you get this album, gotta get vol 2 and the live one. They go well together. Vol 1 is my favorite though. Good southern blues/rock.

One of my all-time favorites

Bluefist

A fantastic album. I defy anyone who loves ballsy rock not to make this a staple in their listening collection. Anyone who is a fan of blues-rock or jam bands will quickly grow to love this. A phenomenally talented band & a great tribute to their fallen brother. Not one bad song on it. Warren Haynes is a prolific writer/performer. Standouts include: the title track, the cover of CCR's 'Effigy', 'Worried Down with the Blues' & many more.

This is a great disc. If you like great blues/rock you will love this. I saw the Mule in the spring in a club setting and they were fantastic. I also saw Warren Haynes with the Allman Brothers this summer. He is one of the best singer/guitarists out there today. If you get the chance check them out!!

They Say All Music Guide

With the death of bassist Allen Woody, the surviving members of Gov’t Mule faced that familiar question of how to carry on. Their answer is this sprawling set, on which a cavalcade of bassists and other visitors fly through the Mule tracks, each fitting into the groove in his own way. Drummer Matt Abts is especially adept at accommodating these guests, shifting from a medium-tempo plod behind the clean-picked lines and world-weary vocals of Jack Bruce on “Fool’s Moon” to a four-beat slam-out, reminiscent of “Dance to the Music,” to accommodate former Sly Stone side monster Larry Graham during “Life on the Outside.” And on “Same Price” he hammers fills behind Who alumnus John Entwistle with an energy that recalls Kenny Jones, if not quite Keith Moon, while Warren Haynes approximates Pete Townshend’s harmony-driven style. With the band’s rugged sound providing common reference, the styles of each bassist prove easy to discern. Those who play inside the groove make their presence known through stealthy insinuation, like Flea on a catlike prowl through “Down and Out in New York City.” On “Tear Me Down,” Bootsy Collins follows a different tack, by flitting against the band’s heavy tread with nimble lines that dance in and out of wah-wah effects, thumb-slap funk, and sly interactions with former P-Funk colleague Bernie Worrell’s Minimoog. Allen Woody himself makes a posthumous appearance, on a previously unreleased cover of Grand Funk Railroad’s “Sin’s a Good Man’s Brother.” Here, the band stretches into a comfortable, loose, Hendrix-like feel, as all three members jam with intuitive interaction and raw passion; no other performance here feels quite so natural. – Robert L. Doerschuk
