From the GM newsletter:

Following a few days off after the New Year's shows, Gov't Mule is returning to the studio to record its follow-up to Deja Voodoo. Warren flew down to Austin, TX yesterday to write with producer Gordie Johnson (Big Sugar) and the band and crew will join him next week and enter Willie Nelson's famed Pedernales Studio to begin recording.

The soon to be launched mule.net/inthestudio will be providing you with "fly on the wall" access to the recording of the new Gov't Mule record. Beginning January 18th with rehearsal, and continuing through the entire recording process, come to mule.net/inthestudio for daily updates including a blog, photos, streaming video, and more.

Deja Voodoo is so great I'm almost afraid the new one won't measure up to it. I assume Warren will also be writing with Gregg Allman since the Brothers are supposed to be recording as well.

When Deja Voodoo came out, Rolling Stones and other reviewers did not give it high marks. If recent live performances are any indication, this album should better than the last one. I am looking forward to seeing what concept they place with this album.

I wouldn't put any money down on a new ABB studio album anytime soon.

That will be cool if they document the recording process on the web site. I have always been curious as to how the Mule records. With Warren's schedule I don't know how the band finds time to write and really work out new tunes. I have always assumed that their music is very spontaneous and the tracks laid down quickly. Then the songs mature and are refined on the road.
I am not a musician so I have no idea, but I am very interested

matt abts talked about this a little on the Bill Walton Show on sirius last weekend...

Deja Voodoo didn't do as much for me as other mule albums, though I do like it... I'm hoping I'll like this one better...

Let me preface this by saying I have been a huge Mule fan since their inception. However, I think the new Mule lacks that gut rumbling hard nosed rock n roll texture that the old Mule had. It shows not only in their latest studio effort but also in concert. Mule still rocks, and their shows are certainly a must see.... But, I think their choice for Woody's full time replacement lacks the balls and hard nosed playing that made the mule great.

Just my humble opinion.

Peace.

I absolutely love 'Mule and Deja Vodoo. However, I know what you're saying about the "bottom end." It's not the same. But, I look at it as just a change. I think Andy Hess is a great player and a nice addition to the line-up. Its simply changed the signature sound of 'Mule. And as we all know, life is about change. I miss "Woody," but the new 'Mule is great in it's own way as well. I can't wait for the new CD!

I agree. I like the shows I've seen and heard since it was released (mixing old and new) but the CD itself doesn't do much for me except for maybe two songs.

This has been brought up before, but I agreed with others at the time of the discussion that Gov't Mule was changing even before Woody died. Life Before Insanity was a good example of that. It was quite a change from their first album and Dose.

Maybe I wokeup after a coma (and the world changed since I fell asleep), but since when is the Rolling Stones or any critic for that matter the gage of good music ? It's all relative to the listener, critics don't mean squat and especially for music.

I totally agree with this statement. I think as a musician and writer Warren is beyond the material from the Gov't Mule and Dose days. They were good cd's but it is like comparing an adolescent (self-titled and Dose) to a young adult (Life Before Insanity) and then to an adult (the Deep End years and Deja Voodoo).

Further, Deja Voodoo was a transitional cd. I think it reflects the state Warren and the band were in at the time. They were a new band. The song writing had strengths and weaknesses. It allowed the guys a platform to develop as a live performing band. A quite satisfying one at that. IMHO, the best adult contemporary American rock band touring today.

I can't wait to hear what Warren, the Mule and Gordie Johnson are going to cook up for us.

As was said: Mule Rules.

The ABB is great, but it is a very different band than Mule. The structure and breath of the ABB has already been written. The Mule can go in so many different directions at this point, that one could get dizzy trying to guess which way they will go. It's an exciting time indeed.

A good review can signal others to buy the CD. When the review came out, Mule posted it on their website. So, I guess you can say Mule does take notice of critics. When ABB released the last CD, critics raved about it. This site is filled with reviews. Does these reviews mean squat?

I think Mule's sound was evolving even before Woody's death, as happens with most great original bands. Life Before Insantiy does not sound similar to Dose or the first album. Many of the Deep End songs were already written before Woody's death and it was Warren and Matt's choice to record them in the manner they did. Andy is a different player than Woody but he and Danny bring a funkier jazzier sensibility to Mule's sound and I listen to the new performances of the old songs and they seem pretty heavy to me. Anyway this is an old story. There are critics who thinkt he Who never did a worthwhile thing after 1968 and the Beatles finest work was "There's a Place" Bands evolve even when the original members stay the same, but especially when those members change.

Doug
