Get behind the Mule
before the Mule gets past YOU. Listen to sample from the 6-CD box, below.


On October 16th, Gov’t Mule will release the first
installment in their ‘Bootleg Series.’ ‘The
Georgia Bootleg Box’
is a 6-disc set capturing
a 3-night run from Georgia in 1996 recorded live at The Georgia Theater in
Athens on 4/11, The Roxy in Atlanta on 4/12 and Elizabeth Reed Music Hall in
Macon on 4/13. The box features the band’s original trio: Warren Haynes
(vocals/guitar), Matt Abts (drums) and Allen Woody (bass) and guest appearances
by a young Derek Trucks and Tinsley Ellis. The 65-track set will be released by
Evil Teen Records.

Listen to “Blind Man In The Dark” from 4/11:

The Georgia Bootleg Box’ features
over 7 hours of  music from the band’s
early era. Says Haynes: “I was instantly taken with the visceral nature of the
music along with the rawness of the way they were captured,”
when he recently rediscovered the recordings after fifteen years. “This
was at a time in our career when our repertoire was small but constantly
growing, not unlike our fan base.”

Gov’t Mule’s “connection with the state of Georgia is a deep one,” he
says. “Our first rehearsals were at the one-time living quarters of the
Allman Brothers Band known as The Big House in Macon, GA…A
lot of our growth as a band took place in front of Georgia audiences.”
