Editorial Reviews

Those of you that have followed the Mule's history know that our connection with the state of Georgia is a deep one. Our first rehearsals were at the one-time living quarters of the Allman Brothers Band known as The Big House (now the ABB museum) in Macon, GA. Some later rehearsals took place at what used to be the legendary Capricorn Recording Studio in Macon while recording the song GONNA SEND YOU BACK TO GEORGIA for the HOUND DOG TAYLOR Tribute CD. A lot of our earliest shows were in Georgia as well so a lot of our growth as a band took place in front of Georgia audiences. Having recently been reminded of these 3 shows from '96, and of the fact that they had been recorded and mixed by Doug Oade back in the day, I found myself listening to these recordings for the first time in fifteen years. I was instantly taken with the visceral nature of the music along with the rawness of the way that it was captured. The Mule was barely two years old at this time and what we hear here, along with many songs from our first CD, are the works in progress of many songs that would later wind up on DOSE and in some cases LIFE BEFORE INSANITY. This was at a time in our career when our repertoire was small but constantly growing, not unlike our fan base.

In my old age I've grown jaded. I don't award 5 stars lightly, but this set has earned it. This is the definition of a power trio, in the tradition of Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience and ZZ-Top. Three virtuosos executing songs bubbling over with solos from each member simultaneously, yet it sounds perfectly complimentary. What we have here is three shows recorded over three consecutive nights during the first couple of years of Gov't Mule's existence. The second studio album, Dose, was soon to be released, and the sets are built around selections from that album along with ones from their debut release. There's even a couple of early versions of No Need To Suffer, which wouldn't appear until their third album as well as Rocking Horse, which originally appeared on an Allman's release before Warren claimed it for the Mule. At only 4 and 1/2 minutes, it's much shorter than it would eventually become, but the playing is so tight, so inspired and so energetic, you won't mind a bit. And that goes for the rest of the collection. The playing on everyone's part is absolutely superb, occasionally flat-out stunning, as during the second night, 4/12/96, when they launch into Trane, from the first studio album, and over the next 20 minutes, pass through many different instrumental jams, some officially named and some not, with Warren quoting everything from Hendrix to Zappa, eventually peaking with the Dead's St. Stephen, so smoothly crafted that it'll leave a big ole grin on your face from ear to ear! Now, looking at the set lists on this box, you may be a bit concerned at first because of the repeats for all three nights, but on paper is where the similarities end. Each night has its' own unique vibe and all three members do their best to take the songs in a different direction every night.Read more ›

As a long fan of the Mule, I tend to buy just about everything from these guys. This is a really great box featuring tons of unreleased live music. It's very cool to hear Warren say things like "Here's a New Song" when it's now a total mule classic. Derek Trucks is also on about 1/2 of this, so you get a nice Allman type vibe. HIGHly recommended.

I've been a life long Allman Brothers Band fan, who has only in recent years, warmed up completely to Warren Haynes. Only recently have I found myself in a state of not imagining The Brothers without him. I have always known he had this band. I travel to the Allman Brothers shows at The Beacon in NYC, I buy up their live shows on their website, and always hear people talking about this "other" band that Warren is in. I see their CDs for sale on The Brothers website. I had an Amazon gift card from Christmas and decided I'd buy a couple Gov't Mule CDs and give them a listen. This set was the latest and showed up 1st in the listings.

Wow!!! What an idiot I've been! I'm 47 years old, a huge music fan, but very resistant to change. How foolish I've been to not check these guys out 20 years earlier. This band is what, 3 guys on this set? 4 when Derek joins them late in the set? How could I have passed up seeing them live, they've performed so many times here in small clubs around Portland? This set is, like someone else said, "face melting". I bought 2 others, their debut and Deja Voodoo. I cannot stop listening to them, and especially this live bootleg set. This sounds like 5 players, the vibe is incredible. The music reminds me of......well, nothing to compare. Allman Brothers, Cream, Zep, all type of influences. Woody, RIP, and also an ex Brother, is insane, those bass lines are crazy. I recommend this set to any rock and roll music fan, at 6 discs its a bargain! The energy, guitars, vocals, drums are explosive, the live vibe is awesome! Govt Mule fans already know all this. I hope someone like me reads this somehow and pulls the trigger, what a set!

This is the hard core trio in true form, pure Mule. I knew I was loving this CD set into the first show. The music simply kick ass. The sound quality is really pristine. Warren, Woody and Matt simply jam their asses off. The music flows and really is great. I have Live In The Roseland Ballroom, this in on the same level. Really glad to add this to my collection. Derek Trucks joining in to jam is a real bonus. I played Spanish Moon 3 times in a row before moving on. Any fan will love this box. I hope there will be more. Sure bet if your looking for some fresh jams.

Very good material, typical from the earlier Mule concerts, bass line is incredible, and while Derek joins the set a real eargasm!!! Well actually as I write this review, all I could say is that I've really enjoyed "whatever I was able to save and could heard", as I have several issues with the pack glue and defects (as many others here).

Update: Well in the first order the third CD was damaged, and the fifth defective, and not from the glue, it made an scratchy noise, on the second, the CDs were better, but still a few scuffs in one of them, unacceptable for a brand new item, and the fifth still defective, now on the third order, the fifth CD was defective as well, you can listen to it, but it makes noises like static or scratchy noises (tested in two players, a 555ES Sony and an Oppo). Thanks God Amazon refunded and the third will be on the way back as well, I still have one clean, but still not fully functional set, the other two are on the way back...Yeah I know, perseverance is a virtue...But in this case it was simply not worthy...Well finally second time playing them now...Still same noise!!!

After some inspection, it seems that the glue problem was not that they applied too much, it was all the opposite, the glue was supposed to be applied at the end of the sleeve, as a full line, to seal the back and to avoid the CDs from slipping though the back, a pretty bad design if you asked, with a simple cardboard ear the problem would be solved completely...but they just applied a drop or two of the glue, and inserted the CDs right away, without letting the glue to dry properly, and seal the cardboard sleeve, so the disks slipped all the way, and the glue got on top and bottom the disks instead of the cardboard!!!
