Gov't Mule: 65-track Georgia Bootleg Box Set

GOV'T MULE'S 'BOOTLEG SERIES' LAUNCHES WITH
6-DISC SET OF SEMINAL EARLY LIVE SHOWS

Gov't Mule
On October 16, 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 below.

The Georgia Bootleg Box’ features over 7 hours of gritty, driving blues, soaring jams and wicked guitar work. It's a unique look back at the trio, just two years old in '96, locked in and ripping through songs that have become classics of Mule's live set. 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."
