Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Gov't Mule. Rated 7th!
Few bands have a reputation for making music as consistently honest, organic, and daring as Gov't Mule. But in curveball mode, and for the first time in its 20-year career, Gov't Mule has delved into its vaults to create this 180g Double LP of its fabled Halloween 2008 performance at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston. The show featured a long and varied set of impassioned, expertly executed Pink Floyd covers (spanning 80-plus minutes) as only the Mule can deliver, with guest saxophonist Ron Holloway (Dizzy Gillespie, Gil Scott-Heron, Little Feat, Allman Brothers). All tracks have been remixed and mastered.
This 180g Vinyl Double LP is comprised of most of the Floyd covers set and contains a limited time download code for digital download.
Gov't Mule is a Southern rock jam band, formed in 1994 as a side project of The Allman Brothers Band by guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody.

Gov't Mule has become a staple act at music festivals across North America, with both its members and frequent guests boasting members from other notable bands, adding various funk and blues rock elements to the band's sound.
