This week the third half of Grateful Dead recorded live at the Oklahoma City Music Hall, November 15th, 1972. This segment includes a Playing In The Band that clocks in at over a half an hour, and it’s 1972 Grateful Dead, you know it can’t be bad…
Then we jump back to the present, with Government Mule’s New Year’s Eve show form the Beacon Theater in New York City. Not only was this the last Government Mule show of 2010, it may be the last Mule show we hear for a while. The Mule has announced it’s going to take a break in 2011, only playing a handful of dates.
They also put out a request to their fans for NYE:
We’re asking you to vote for your favorite songs of ours, your favorite songs that we cover, and a few that you always wanted to hear us cover. We’ll take all this feedback, and use it to help craft the 3 sets on New Year’s Eve. We appreciate your help, and thanks again for all your support over the years.
We are looking for
* Your 10 Favorite Gov’t Mule songs
* Your 5 Favorite Songs that Gov’t Mule covers
* 5 Cover Songs you always wanted to hear Gov’t Mule play
See you in a few weeks.
-Warren, Matt, Danny, and Jorgen
So, we’ll be playing the “Songs you’ve always wanted to hear” part of the show, from Led Zeppelin to Bad Company, and including sit-ins with Corky Laing from Mountain, Jon Herington from Steely Dan, and sax player Bill Evans.
