    Steve, what did you think of the new songs?

    Here is a pretty good youtube vid from the show. Whoever took this was standing a few feet behind me as you can see the back of my head (in black Tigers hat) bopping around during much of the shot.

    Thanks for the vids Steve, especially Thorazine Shuffle, my favorite Mule tune.

    I love Warren/Mule and sorry I missed them in Ct a couple weeks ago.

    From Yahoo...

    Bonnaroo Hosted a "Joker"-Off
    On Saturday afternoon, jam band Gov't Mule played a crowd-pleasing version of the Steve Miller Band's "The Joker." Only a few hours later, on the same stage, headliner Jack Johnson covered the same song, oddly. Who sang it best? That is up for debate. But this "Joker" double-header indicated one thing: Steve Miller should really be invited to headline Bonnaroo next year. No joke.

    Wow!

    That War Pigs killed!

    Warren's got Fat Time.

    Everything he plays is just a hair behind, making the sound heavy & thick.

    And that Les Paul tone..., to die for!

    To be honest I am not sure which ones were new. The only two that I did not recognize were “Scared To Live” and “Larger Than Life”. Are those new? I don't think I have them on any albums.

    Of course, now that I think about it.....I have "Dose", but for some reason I didn't remember it when they did it.

    What’s the best Gov’t Mule album, guitar-solo wise? I’ve listened to a bit of them over the years and like them. I like the song “Down and Out in NYC”

    First two albums: S/T and Dose. Highly recommended.

    That's a James Brown cover. It's great.

    Tough to say as they have so many good albums. I might go with "The Deep End Vol I" for studio or the live "With A Little Help From Our Friends.."

    The first two are their "power trio" albums and Warren is blazing on guitar. Later on they added keys, lost their bass player, did two albums of covers/originals with a host of bass players (including Chris Squire), and then added a new thundering bass player. I think the songwriting is better as they went on but there's a primal fury to those early efforts. These guys live to play live and about any live album is worth a listen.

    I always figured it was a cover, but didn’t know the song. I love the line “Well I was born in New York City on a Monday, by Tuesday I was outside shining shoes.” Just like me! Except I was born on a Sunday.
