    I love Gov't Mule!!!

    The first one you gotta buy is their first one 'Gov't Mule'.......Awesome blues/hard rock mix. They have 3 studio albums & 2 live albums. It's all about the live show that's when they would kick your ass........ Unfortunately on Aug. 26 of this year the bass player Allen Woody passed away The band may still continue but the band was basically built on this dudes big, fat, noisy bass. Woody was incredible, he was basically a Southern Rock version of Billy Sheehan but BETTER. They may have been the best 3 piece since Rush. I highly suggest picking up some Mule, you won't be disappointed. The guitarist Warren Haynes will blow your mind, this guy can play, also the drummer Matt Abts is incredible. There hasn't been this much talent in one band since..........VH

    Here's a couple of reviews for a couple of Gov't Mule c.d.'s

    'Gov't Mule' 1995

    Simply put, Gov't Mule -- featuring guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody of the Allman Brothers -- is the most exciting major-group offshoot since Hot Tuna evolved out of Jefferson Airplane in the early '70s. Taking a further cue from the glory days of the power trio, the Mule kick with punishing metal force. Woody and drummer Matt Abts hammer out a bottom-heavy platform from which Haynes can grandstand.
    As formidable as Haynes is with the Allman Brothers Band, he soars in this sparser setting. He pits an astonishing slide solo against John Popper's guest harmonica on "Mule" and then bridges the not-too-distant gap between Jimi Hendrix and Miles Davis on the modal jam "Trane." Gov't Mule gallop through a gamut of power-trio tropes from the steel-spinning ecstasy of Cream to the otherworldly effects of ZZ Top, from the light-heavy dichotomy of Led Zeppelin to the sonic taffy pull of Mountain. All the while, Haynes focuses these elements through his own distinct personality -- the true mark of a guitar genius.

    Gov't Mule - Dose (Capricorn) 1998

    What's this? Gov't Mule has a new release on the legendary Capricorn label? Now if that isn't a marriage made in southern rock heaven, then I don't know what is. Guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody spent the last several years playing in the Allman Brothers Band, and Capricorn Records shall forever be known as the house that Duane built. As the second (and most prolific) successor to Duane Allman in the ABB, Warren Haynes was quickly acknowledged as a superb slide guitarist as well as a convincing singer who could write a decent tune. After years of sharing the spotlight with (Allman) brother Gregg and Dickey Betts, Haynes and Woody left the world famous band to devote their energy to Gov't Mule.
    On their third album, Gov't Mule has broadened their sound and direction, further embracing the sonic possibilities of a power trio format. Echoing the accomplishments of classic threesomes like the Jimi Hendrix Experience and Cream, Haynes, Woody, and Matt Abts play with exuberance and style. While Gov't Mule may be wholly steeped in blues-rock, Warren Haynes' majestic proficiency on the electric guitar allows for explorations in a variety of musical idioms. Nodding to many of the influential musicians that have come before them (as conveyed by the title of the song "Thelonius Beck"), Gov't Mule has still carved out a fairly distinctive sound. Warren Haynes not only plays guitar with fire and precision, but his soulful voice is immediately identifiable. Whether it is the gospel, country-blues of "John The Revelator" (written by Son House), or the ambitious reworking of the Beatles' "She Said She Said," this record always ends up sounding like nothing but Gov't Mule.
    No matter how well the rhythm section of bassist Allen Woody and drummer Matt Abts play together, Dose often ends up as an instrumental showcase for Mr. Warren Haynes. His sterling guitar work contains all the burning vocabulary of Hendrix, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, to name only a few easy rock references. Be forewarned, if you don't like lots of extended guitar solos and the flashy excess of psychedelic blues, stay away from this disc. With intricate interplay on pounding instrumentals like "Birth Of The Mule," this Gov't Mule carries a very heavy load. So get out your bic lighters, kids, southern rock is back and better than ever. 'Nuff said.

    Gov't Mule - Live ... With A Little Help From Our Friends (Capricorn) 1999

    It's no surprise that Gov't Mule is a great live band, considering it includes two former members of the Allman Brothers Band, and it tours with both Blues Traveler and the H.O.R.D.E. festival.
    Yet on this two-disc live album, recorded on New Year's Eve '98-'99, it's not until they're joined by such friends as former Allmans (and Rolling Stones) sideman Chuck Leavell, Funkadelic's Bernie Worrell and Marc Ford of Black Crowes fame that things really get smoking.
    Once the threesome finishes slogging its way through "Thorazine Shuffle" and Black Sabbath's "War Pigs," Ford gives them a swift, fiery kick on "30 Days in the Hole" that keeps up until the closer, a Santana-like jam on John Coltrane's "Afro-Blue" that includes sax, organ and percussion.
    Of course, the Mule's resumé guarantees such lengthy improvs, but for fans of southern-fried, bar-burnin' boogie blues, most of this night is worth repeating.

    Gov’t Mule - Life Before Insanity (Capricorn) 2000

    By touring incessantly, Southern blues-rock trio Gov’t Mule have spread plenty of jam in this nasty metal-rap marketplace. But their third studio effort cuts back on noodling in favor of somewhat crisper song structures. Don’t worry, no three-minute doses of slick pop here. “Wandering Child” still features erratic, jazzy time signatures, while the stomping title track sounds like an Allman Brothers-Soundgarden summit. And on “Lay Your Burden Down,” guitarist Warren Haynes and guest Ben Harper provide chords that are meatier than your favorite rib joint. Dig in.
