Legendary jam band Gov’t Mule will release their latest live album, Dub Side of The Mule, on April 7th through Evil Teen Records.
The 12-track album continues the band’s extensive live archival project begun with last year’s Pink Floyd tribute, Dark Side Of The Mule, and the instrumental jazz odyssey Sco-Mule, released earlier this year. Dub Side captures a 2006 New Year’s Eve concert at New York’s Beacon Theatre. Amidst the three hour long set, Gov’t Mule took an hour to perform an all-reggae set with Jamaican icon Toots Hibbert (Toots & The Maytals) as a special guest.
Together, they covered Hibbert’s classic dub material like “Pressure Drop”, “54-46 Was My Number”, and even his take on Radiohead’s “Let Down”. They also delivered one of the earliest live performances of their joint rendition of Otis Redding’s “Hard To Handle”, released on Mile High a year later.
