Buy New & Used Gov't Mule Vinyl
You can’t spell jam bands without Gov’t Mule. Or… something like that. The group — better known as “The Mule” to fans — has been synonymous with the jam band culture since coming together in the early 90s. It’s the musical expression from guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody, two artists who got their break from playing in the 90s revival of The Allman Brothers. Both established themselves as rightful players in the iconic band, wielding their instruments as swords in a way that only true southern rockers can. Gov’t Mule’s self-titled album arrived in 1995 and immediately felt reminiscent of the Allmans, but Gov’t Mule pushed psychedelia into a bluesier direction.
The impact was felt immediately, and it was followed with Gov’t Mule’s Live at Roseland Ballroom, an iconic live album. The Mule sound — fueled by whiskey and magic mushrooms — evolved further with 1998’s Dose, 11 tracks of fierce garage-y feeling blues that appropriately stole a million faces. Gov’t Mule records continued to come, as the band regularly released live volumes, almost a workingman’s approach to the jam scene. Sadly, Woody died tragically in 2000, but the Mule pressed forward, emulating their Allman Brothers heroes, operating as vehicles for musicians to experiment and explore their own directions of modern psychedelic rock. Their fans remained loyal as well, as Gov’t Mule’s later albums — 2013’s Shout and then 2017’s Revolution Come...Revolution Go —hit significant points on the Billboard Charts. At this point, Gov’t Mule albums have become synonymous with the definition of southern psychedelic rock.
