Gov’t Mule’s first live album, LIVE AT ROSELAND BALLROOM, has been out of print for nearly a decade and is highly sought after by fans and collectors. Evil Teen Records will reissue this definitive recording Tuesday, May 16, 2007.
Originally released October 22, 1996, the concert was recorded on December 31, 1995, and is an early hint of what has become Gov’t Mule’s New Year’s Eve perennial run at New York’s famed Beacon Theatre.
LIVE AT ROSELAND BALLROOM features Gov’t Mule¹s founding lineup: Warren Haynes (guitar/vocals), Allen Woody (bass) and Matt Abts (drums). The recording rocks with original classics "Trane" and "Mule"; and a majestic cover of Steppenwolf’s "Don¹t Step on the Grass, Sam". A bonus track, "Voodoo Chile," will be included from Gov’t Mule’s Roseland Ballroom concert October 18, 2001.
LIVE AT ROSELAND BALLROOM demonstrates Gov’t Mule’s prowess, ambition and importance, as well as why Warren Haynes has been heralded by his contemporaries and Rolling Stone as one of rock’s greatest guitarists ever.
LIVE AT ROSELAND BALLROOM is a multi-track recording, but is presented as it was performed with no overdubs. It is the precursor to the two track recordings available at MuleTracks.com, which since 2004 has delivered 1,000,000 tracks downloaded. Gov’t Mule’s HIGH & MIGHTY worldwide tour continues in 2007 through the US, Europe, Japan and Canada.
