Gov’t Mule goes into curveball mode for Black Friday and delves into their vaults for a limited run, vinyl-only release of highlights from its fabled Halloween 2009 performance at the Tower Theater outside of Philadelphia. The show featured a long and varied set of impassioned, expertly executed Rolling Stones covers as only the Mule can deliver, with special guests Jackie Greene (Phil Lesh & Friends, Black Crowes, Trigger Hippy) ans saxophonist Steve Elson (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Radiohead, David Bowie). The songs on Vol. 1 are newly edited and mastered, with the vinyl lacquers cut from the old Stax Records lathe in Memphis.
