On April 7, Gov’t Mule will issue Dub Side Of The Mule, the group’s fourth new live archival release in the last six months. Dub Side Of The Mule was recorded at the Beacon Theatre in New York City on December 31, 2006. Warren Haynes and Co. were joined by a bevy of guests that night including John Popper, Gregg Allman and reggae legend Toots Hibbert.

Gov’t Mule’s NYE ’06-’07 featured a reggae-themed second set as part of a marathon three-hour plus performance documented on the new release. Dub Side Of The Mule is available for pre-order via Music Today in a variety of formats including a deluxe edition that includes a bonus DVD. Today, we’ve got our first taste of the new release as Ultimate Classic Rock has premiered video of “Pressure Drop” from Dub Side Of The Mule’s bonus DVD.

Watch as Toots leads an extended version of Gov’t Mule that includes Haynes, drummer Matt Abts, bassist Andy Hess, keyboardist Danny Louis, guitarist Gordie Johnson, vocalists Machan and Elain Caswell, percussionist Sean Pelton and a horn section featuring Buford O’Sullivan, Pam Fleming and Jenny Hill through one of his most beloved songs:

UPDATE 2/26 8:45 a.m.: Gov’t Mule has just announced yet another live archival release. The band will release Stoned Side of the Mule Volume 2 for Record Store Day as a six song, limited edition vinyl only available only at select independent record stores on April 18. Due to the success of last year’s Volume 1, double the quantity will be made available for Volume 2. Stoned Side of the Mule Volume 2 is said to feature six Rolling Stones covers recorded on Halloween 2009 at the Tower Theatre in Philadelphia. The release has been newly-edited and mastered with the vinyl lacquers cut from the old Stax Records lathe in Memphis.
