I searched high and low, and the only thread for these guys was in the pit, and I figure they belong here.

so to start off:


I really want to listen to more than just the couple tracks I already have

what are some good albums?

I'm thinking about getting "Fire In the Kitchen" by Warren Haynes

and "Dose" by Gov't Mule


are these good?

I just got some good tunes, like their cover of Smokestack Lightning
#3
the deepend its great so it daja voodoo and warren has a live album out
#4
deja voodoo is great. My favorites from that album are 'Bad Man Walking' 'About to Rage' 'Perfect Shelter' 'Slackjaw Jezebel' 'Lola Leave Your Light On' and 'Mr. Man'

All great tracks, i could listen to them for hours,

I have High and Mighty, Mighty High, Deja Voodoo and Life Before Insanity and every song on every album is a good song. Their live stuff blows their studio material out of the water though

Gov't Mule Live>Studio
#12
I ended up getting dose, i really like it

their version of "John the Revelator" is absolutely amazing

All of their stuff is good. They do a lot of cover songs too like war pigs, catfish blues, and "she said"

My two favorite songs they do are probably soulshine (which I think was an allman brothers song) and catfish blues.

Oh yeah and gonna send you back to georgia, a cover of a houndog taylor song. It's BA

They do war pigs!?



that is ****ing awesome

Warren Haynes wrote "Soulshine" while he was playing with the Allman bros

Peace Pipe, Brighter Days, and Soulshine are good songs by Gov't Mule.
Check out Black Crowes if you like Gov't Mule.
I love Foxy Shazam more than you.

John the Revelator=epic.
#23
I don't know how Gov't mule isn't more well known.

BTW, if you're a metallica fan check out the gov't mule song "drivin rain".

Haynes and Hetfield collaberated on vocals.

Gov't Mules is reportedly hetfield's favorite band.

Really? I was unaware of that. Quite interesting...

Sadly, I do not own any albums by Gov't Mule, though I have listened to several of them in full, as well as songs from various albums and live covers. I plan on changing my status as a non-Mule album owner soon, though.

I do, however, own several albums (both studio and live) by The Allman Brothers Band that feature the great Warren Haynes, who is undoubtedly among my favorite guitarists. I've also had the pleasure to see him live three times, and each time he has completely awed me. Not only are his abilities with the guitar matched by only a very select few, but his voice is beautiful.
#25
^ Exactly. I love Warren's voice. He's a great guitar player also, but I love his vocals.

Check out Black Crowes regardless of what you think about Gov't Mule.

Fixed.

(I don't think Matt [BrainDamage] reads the blues forum, but if he did he'd be proud of me right now.)


But anyway, I don't know any Gov't Mule yet, but I think I'm going to download a show of theirs right now to get a taste as I've been meaning to listen to them.
Hey, I'm Mike.

The point is, Warren could be either a guitarist or a vocalist (as in only one), and still outshine the majority of others who either play the instrument or sing.

The fact that he does both, and so so well, is mind-blowing.

John the Revelator is epic. So is their cover of No Quarter.
#29
I finally own a Gov't Mule album. In a very tough decision, I chose Live at the Roseland Ballroom over The Flaming Lips album Transmissions from the Satellite Heart. However, I feel very justified in my decision, because this show is smoking.

I was listening to it in the car on the way home, and the first track is a sixteen minute instrumental entitled "Trane". About halfway through the song there was a brief conversation with my mother:

Mom: "Jeffrey, does this music have any words?"

Me: "Not this track."

Mom: "Oh."

And with that the conversation ended.

Just downloaded a three night stand of solo acoustic sets from 2004. I think acoustic Warren is particularly awesome because his voice is sooo powerful.

Sounds like several conversations I've had about music.

I'm stoked, they're playing here in a couple months!


I actually missed Gov't Mule the last time they were in town because they were playing at a smaller venue (so I wasn't aware of their show until the night they were playing) and they played on a school night.

I'm going to try to be more aware of when they're coming again so I can catch them then.
#34
^ That sucks man. But you missed it cause it was on a school night? Thats kinda weak.

Yes, but to elaborate further I had track practice immediately after school, followed by homework.

That's still weak. I should have went.

Gov't Mule covered Maybe I'm a Leo? That's my favorite Deep Purple song!
