    There are a couple very cool bass releases this week.....Gov't Mule double C.D. plus three hour DVD is great!!....Victor Wooten, Will Lee, George Porter, Les Claypool, Jack casady, Paul Jackson and a bunch of others just kickin' booty with the Mule.......Victor's solo is worth the price of admission:bassist:
    Dave Weckl has a double live C.D. with Tom Kennedy soloing on almost every song....standout song is 'Rhythm-A-ling' with a outstanding solo from Tom!!! He also walks his ass off on this album!!! Too much cool stuff this week, I'm still waiting for the new Primus DVD:bassist:

    gov't Mule's the deepest end package arrived today--6 hours of material! I've only made it through the DVD so far--it's awesome! what a great opportunity to see many different basses, bassists and styles of playing and music.

    Warren Haynes scares me! He is such a great vocalist, guitaist, songwriter and is the new hardest working man in show business--as evidenced by this 6 hour show, his work with the Allman brothers and throw in Phil Lesh and friends!

    Victor & Bernie Worrell cook on Sco-Mule! Paul Jackson and the dirty dozen horns jam Chamaeleon. Warren and Les (playing a Ric w/ the price tag hanging on it?!) get freaky. Pleanty of good blues tunes too w/ sonny landreth and a real nice version of hendrix's voodo chile w/ jack casady on bass(also on the orginal)

    This is a new classic

    The Bernie Worrell solo on Sco-mule is one of the many highlights for me......I just love his playing! Special mention of many to Matt Abts too....he plays great for the whole six hours!!!

    Well, i ordered the Deepest end package a couple days ago right after i read this thread. It came yesterday. Now i previously never even hear about Gov't Mule. But DAMN!!!! The guys are FREAKIN' amazing :eek: . I was so happy that i just risked it and ordered the Pack. The DVD alone is worth more than i paid for the whole thing. And the Guitarist, Warren Haynes, was simply amazing. The whole band was! I love the drummers playing style and the band as a whole is just crazy. Thanks alot jerry for bringing this to my attention. Its a really good DVD and i enjoyed it thoroughly. What an amazing concert. Truly a lesson in musicianship. :D

    As always, thanks for the updatesd

    (in case you are wondering, the audiofile imports thread is about my order with that new Dave Weckl CD and the New/Old ARU album - just released)

    guys, don't forget the MeShell N'Degeocello (sp?) was released this week as well.

    i need to go get the new Mule CD.

    BTW, I got the Tower of Power DVD in the mail last night (not for AImports) and it was OK. I also got the Allman Bros Live at the Beacon - THAT ROCKED!!!!!!!!!!

    ;) :D

    I bought it last week, and you're right. Oteil was amazing, and Warren and Derek are great guitar players. What a great band! I've been a fan since the '70s, and this is the best lineup since Duane died, IMO.

    It's great to see more and more people groovin' to the Mule!
    I've been a fan from the beginning and even though I was extremely bummed when Woody died, they just seem to keep getting better.
