With news of the 23rd annual Warren Haynes
Christmas Jam
still fresh – this year’s installment, Dec. 10, features Gov’t
Mule, Phil Lesh & Friends, Los Lobos and a ton of other killer bands – Haynes’
label Evil Teen has just announced the impending release of Warren Haynes Presents: The Benefit Volume



 The 2-disc live
benefit release drops Dec. 6 and features Gov’t Mule, Bob Weir & Friends,
John Hiatt & The Goners, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, moe. and
more, recorded at the 14th annual Warren Haynes Christmas Jam in Asheville, NC
on December 21, 2002. Yours truly was there and can personally testify to the
potency of the evening – there were moments when the entire joint was
levitating, like during Randolph & Haynes’ duel during Slim Harpo’s “Shake
Your Hips,” when moe. Was joined onstage by Bob Weir and during the Mule’s
extended version of signature track “Sco-Mule.”


Proceeds from the album will Benefit the Asheville Chapter
of Habitat for Humanity. Now let’s listen to some Mule:
