For those who haven't visited Mule's site lately, they have started offering some older shows in MP3 and FLAC, not just new ones anymore. The first show they are offering was one of my first Mule shows (I think it was show #3 for me!) and it was one of my favorites. They are offering the Dose CD release party in Atlanta on 2.27.98. I actually was lucky enough to have a meet and greet with the band before the show next door at Sushi Rock Cafe. Check it out, it was a great show. http://www.muletracks.com/

If Warren and the Mule aren't careful, they will be forced to start headlining arenas and summer sheds. I know I was hooked when I finally saw them for the first time back in spring '02. Sure wish I could've seen them with Woody. The setlist of this show is pretty bad-ass with some great guest appearances. I didn't realize Woody played mandolin, dulcimer, and guitar at Mule shows in addition to his bass duties! Oh wait, he was best buddies with the hardest working man in show business.

Too bad you missed Woody, he was one of the very best as I'm sure you've read recently. you're right, the setlist was killer and Woody's change-ups made the show fun. I'd strongly suggest these shows. Warren himself has selected these shows. Here's a quote from Warren rgarding the shows: "I've personally gone through and selected some of my favorite shows based first and foremost on performance, but also on sonic fidelity as well. In most cases we are doing additional treatment to these sound board mixes, be it E.Q., compression, etc., to make them sound as good as possible. Some of this is taking longer than expected, but once it launches, approximately one show per week will be made available when Gov't Mule is not on tour."

Woody was amazing. I've been to so many Mule shows it's crazy! You felt a deep vibe when Woody played. Warren was talking about these Mule tracks coming out soon when I spoke with him in July in Maine. He had such a gleam in his eye just talking about Woody. These tracks should be part of every MULE fans collection.

10/2/56 - 8/26/2000 we should all pause and think about good ol' Woody for a monent.

BTW, Warren said he doesn't like being called the hardest working man in show business.

He said, housewives work harder than he does. He said work is missing your family.

I hope that doesn't happen.
I first saw them with Woody at a small venue in Philly in 99 and that was one of my alltime favorite concerts.

I know there's been a lot of Woody talk lately but I have to comment: After listening to the show, I was reminded how huge Woody's sound was. It just permeated and popped and buzzed thru everything! He was so powerful, but so gentle at times too. Great musician!

I'm 14. I never caught Woody with the band, but yes, I have heard recordings. Saw Mule on 6-23 this summer at The Scene in Cleveland, traveled 4 hours (8 round trip). I'm impatient too. Anyway, it's this simple.

All Mule rocks.

There is no such thing as bad Gov't Mule.

I love the fact that the younger generation is into Mule. It's great. 8hr road trip!! That's pretty darn good.

That trip only happened because I have the best mom in creation. Or one darn well close to it! She likes Warren but isn't very into Mule. But she knew what it meant to me. My dad's an old hippie, he's seen the Brothers a couple dozen times. I was born at a natural childbirth center in NYC NY, so both my parents were present, and the first thing I ever saw was a big ol' mushroom and 'the Allman Brothers Band' on my dad's t shirt. Music really and truely is the best, and awesome forums like this one hook me up with greak folks who share that persuasion.

Thanks for being nifty!

While I didn't get to see Woody with the Mule, I did see him several times with the late 80's to mid-90's version of ABB. In addition to any Woody era Mule, just revisit An Evening with....vol. 1 and 2. Hot damn! I had no idea there was any such thing as an 18-string bass until I saw the ABB for the very first time while in high school. And that 18-string bass meant....Whipping Post. Basically that instrument was a six-string bass except each 'string' was tripled with the ultimate effect being a natural chorusing or 'tone-fattening' effect, similar to that achieved with a 12-string guitar. Check out the WP on 'live at great woods' to see some behemoth bass!
