Here is the setlist from last night. Looks great. Jerry would be smiling with a China Doll, Road Runner & That's What Love Will Make You Do included. I talked to Ron Holloway on Facebook last week about how sweet is the twin of harmony of his sax and Warren's guitar is. I told him that it reminded me of the twin harmony of Jerry Garcia & Martin Fierro on the song Roadrunner off the Pure Jerry 4 cd - Garcia/Saunders Keystone 1974. Well the band played Roadrunner. I need to hear this. Here is the setlist:

Set 1:
Tear Me Down
River's Gonna Rise
Sick of My Shadow
From A Whisper To A Screan

Although i really dig the setlist itself i also am a bit surprised. It looks like they more and more steer away from the "Soul Music" theme of his current CD and more and more start to look like a Gov't Mule setlist "heavy on cover songs".

Does anyone know if "whisper to a scream" is the 80s new wave song?

From a Whisper to A Scream is an Allen Toussaint penned tune. He also wrote Sneakin Sally Through the Alley which the Warren Haynes Band plays too. Both of these songs are on Robert Palmer's 1st album, Sneakin Salley Through the Alley. Palmer is backed by several musicians including the Meters, Lowell George, Cornel Dupree, Bernard Purdie, Steve Winwood & others. Defintiely different than Palmer's later work.

Was the song I Wish, the Stevie Wonder song? I happen to love that song.

Warren did a song last night in Denver called "Working Class Hero," and there was a serious amount against laden lyrics in that song the likes of which is more Mule that anything else but what a performance.

Working Class Hero is a John Lennon song so I am not sure what you mean that is more Mule like than anything else but I sure would have enjoyed seeing it!

Yep, it was the Stevie Wonder song. Man was it funky. Nigel Hall sang one of the choruses, and he just nailed it. Alfreda Gerald also nailed that song. Highlights for me were "What is Hip," "Blue Radio," and "I'll Be The One." He closed the first set with I'll Be The One, and he did a total Blue Sky thing in it. It was beautiful. In the second set, they did "I'd Rather Go Blind," where Alfreda just left it all on the floor, tremendous vocal performance. I thought that was maybe an Otis Redding tune (did he ever sing it?), but googling it, I saw that Etta James co-wrote it with someone? Anyway, the Tuesday night show was just great, and it's actually available for download on bt.etree.org. I didn't make last night's show, bummer, but boy I'm glad I made one night.

While I'm here, I should add that Terence Higgins and Ron Johnson were a superb rhythm section, totally dialed into one another and locked into the groove all night long. Ron Holloway sounded just great, and really went off from time to time.

As soon as your born they make you feel small,
By giving you no time instead of it all,
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
They hurt you at home and they hit you at school,
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool,
Till you're so f*&^%^g crazy you can't follow their rules,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years,
Then they expect you to pick a career,
When you can't really function you're so full of fear,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV,
And you think you're so clever and classless and free,
But you're still **** ing peasents as far as I can see,
A working class hero is something to be,
A working class hero is something to be.
There's room at the top they are telling you still,
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill,
If you want to be like the folks on the hill,
A working class hero is something to be.
A working class hero is something to be.
If you want to be a hero well just follow me,
If you want to be a hero well just follow me.

Didn't know it John Lennon but was awesome nonetheless.

It seems that Warren had a point of of not including covers on the album so that they wouldn't be judged against the originals. However, in some of the early shows (like the Christmas Jam) he included several cover such as "Sneaking Sally Through the Alley". So, I expected that he would include covers in the shows that sounded like the songs on the album (which I guess sound like the songs he is covering).

On the flip side, he seems to be including more Mule songs, so I wonder if that is in response to some people coming to see Warren and expecting the Mule. I was at a Gregg show in January and the people around me expected Blue Sky and Ramblin' Man.

Bottom line is the the album is awesome, the shows sound fabulous and i hope I get to catch one this tour.

The only Mule song I see is "Frozen Fear" which was recorded for man In Motion but became a Mule song. One of the "bonus" editions at Best Buy or iTunes etc has it included.

Some covers overlap, but they are different arrangements. Most of the tunes are from "Tales Of Ordinary Madness" and "Man In Motion." I saw the band in Philly and every song has a "soul/R&B" sound, even tunes like "Fire In The Kitchen" and "Power And The Glory." Excellent stuff. It's not the Mule so don't go with that expectation. the rhythm section is tight but they're not Matt Abts & Jorgen Carlsson, but they're not supposed to be. Warren's solo acoustic mini-sets are pretty sweet too. he knows a **** load of songs. It's crazy.

From the setlists I have seen, he's sticking close to his catalogue and covers. I saw the Chicago show and if memory serves, the only Mule song he did was What Is Hip? > Mule > What is Hip?, meaning Mule not the What is Hip? part.


Well, that and the obligatory Soulshine if you want to consider that a Mule song.

I'm pretty sure "Soulshine" is a Larry McCray song

Larry playes it at every one of his shows, sometimes twice but Warren did indeed write it.

Frozen Fear was originally released on Gov't Mule's By A Thread, their last album.
