One Way Out: The Inside History of the Allman Brothers Band (paperback edition) Alan Paul 496 Pages ISBN: #9781250040503 St. Martin's Press 2015 Though Alan Paul may not have intended it as such, his truncated addition to the paperback edition of One Way Out acts as an implicit explanation of why the Allman Brothers' final (sic) performance in October of 2014 was more of an anti-climax rather than a triumphant close to their ...

Gov't Mule: Dub Side of the Mule (Deluxe Edition)

Read "Gov't Mule: Dub Side of the Mule (Deluxe Edition)" reviewed by

If there are any groups out there who have, for their 20th anniversary, celebrated with a year-long series of as many live releases as Gov't Mule they'd be a challenge to find. As the year-long festivities wind down for the group--beginning as a side project for then- Allman Brothers Band guitarist/vocalist Warren Haynes and (now-sadly deceased) bassist Allen Woody, but which has since taken on a serious life all its own--Mule has released two multi-disc sets, each demonstrating a different ...

The Allman Brothers Band: Live - Beacon Theatre New York City 10-28-14

Read "The Allman Brothers Band: Live - Beacon Theatre New York City 10-28-14" reviewed by

The most stirring moments of the Allman Brothers Band's concert recording from New York City's Beacon Theatre on October 28, 2014 occur near the end of its nearly four-hour performance--not surprisingly, within a rendition of the group's signature instrumental, “Mountain Jam"--that are as emphatic as they are mellifluous. The patient but rabid audience offers instant recognition of the instrumental introduction to “Will the Circle Be Unbroken," after which the intonation in Gregg Allman's voice, as he begins to sing, triggers ...

Year of the Mule - Gov't Mule and the Future Past

Read "Year of the Mule - Gov't Mule and the Future Past" reviewed by

What has previously been relegated to Gov't Mule's live downloads have now been released on CD and LP. But first, a little back ground. Gov't Mule adopted a concert practice of Phish, who began (approximately) yearly coverage of a famous “classic" rock album in concert, typically on Halloween. Phish began this practice in 1994 with The Beatles' White Album (Apple, 1968). Gov't Mule began their similar tradition on Halloween and/or New Year's Eve with a covers from ...

Gov't Mule with John Scofield at the Ogden Theatre

Read "Gov't Mule with John Scofield at the Ogden Theatre" reviewed by

Gov't Mule with John Scofield Ogden Theatre Denver, CO February 24, 2015 A jazz guy plays with a heavy rock band? That would be the superficial description of Sco-Mule. A deeper examination shows that John Scofield and Gov't Mule's Warren Haynes are twin brothers of different mothers. Each possesses a yearning, restless soul, constantly seeking new musical forms and combinations. Each is fearless behind his guitar. And each is possessed of a virtuoso talent and, ...

Warren Haynes: The Timeline of Sco-Mule and Beyond

Read "Warren Haynes: The Timeline of Sco-Mule and Beyond" reviewed by

By all accounts, Warren Haynes is known to be an upbeat forward-thinking individual. In this recent conversation however, he is borderline ebullient. And why not? Last October he aided immeasurably in bringing the forty-five year career of the Allman Brothers Band to a spectacular close. By the time of that historic appearance at New York's Beacon Theatre, the band Haynes founded with drummer Matt Abts and the late bassist Allen Woody, Gov't Mule, had begun the celebration of its twentieth ...

Soulive at Higher Ground, South Burlington, Vermont

Read "Soulive at Higher Ground, South Burlington, Vermont" reviewed by

Soulive Higher Ground Ballroom South Burlington, Vermont December 13, 2014 Strikingly reminiscent of the Lettuce show October 25 2014, Soulive's extended single set at Higher Ground this night took flight during a blazing solo by guitarist Eric Krasno. It wasn't the only such instance that occurred during the two-hours plus the trio occupied the stage--another cam shortly after when Krasno and keyboardist Neal Evans engaged in some extremely intense interplay--but it was evidence of how ...

Allman Brothers Band: Lockn’ Festival, Arlington, VA - September 7, 2014

Read "Lockn’ Festival, Arlington, VA - September 7, 2014" reviewed by

For the better part of the new millennium, the Allman Brothers Band has made available a majority of their live shows, first using Instant Live and then through Munckmusic. There are hundreds of shows available, so why select Allman Brothers Band--Lockn' Festival--Arlington, VA, September 7, 2014? The answer is manifold. First, guitarists Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks announced earlier this year that they would be leaving the band to focus on their own bands and solo careers. ...
