I think I would like to hear them do some AC/DC, like Problem Child. That would be smokin'.

I think Joseph "Blind Willie" Johnson is credited with this song that has also been covered by the Grateful Dead, Widespread Panic and others. Certainly Led Zeppelins version is unique.

I'd like to see them cover just about any of John Campbell's work. Campbell played in front of ABB at the Jazz Fest the year he died and played a searing "When the Levee Breaks". He was enjoying some hard earned and well deserved success when his body gave out. Some people speculate it was because he made a deal at the crossroads. I don't know, but I do know his songs have some powerful lyrics.

I would love to see Govt Mule go from "Bad Little Doggie" into "Wild Steak". I also think Govt Mule is the only band that can provide the sinister sound a song like "Tiny Coffin" needs to be properly interpreted.

To find out more about John Campbell (1952-1993) go here:

http://www.devilinmycloset.net/john_campbell_home.htm

quote:
Wild Streak (D. Walker/J. Campbell) 4:58

My Baby’s got a wild streak,
She loves a midnight ride.
My Baby’s got a wild streak,
She loves a midnight ride.
She likes to cruise the city,
On the back street nasty side.

The moon’s peepin up on the east side,
My baby’s stepping into her gown,
It’s short at the top and the bottom,
It’s magic when she stoops down.
She ain’t afraid of no alley,
She’s too cool to be scared,
Streetlight shines off her earrings,
She got a razor hid up in her hair.

Park my Harley on a side street,
Wait for her in the dark,
When she turns the corner struttin’,
Every dog in the alley starts to bark.


quote:
Tiny Coffin (D. Walker/J. Campbell) 4:42

It takes a tiny coffin for a six year old,
It takes a small hole in the ground.
It takes a tiny coffin for a six year old,
It takes a small hole in the ground.
You could fill it up with my tears and rage,
As they lowered Billy down.

Shotgun blast from a moving car,
It just don’t make no sense.
Shotgun blast from a moving car,
It just don’t make no sense.
They say they were aiming for someone else,
But they put Billy in the past tense.

I knelt by his mama as she weeped in pain.
I asked her what could I do?
I knelt by his mama as she weeped in pain.
I asked her what could I do?
She said, “Pray for me and the neighborhood,
And pray the next time it ain’t you.”

They piled in the Chevy – five angry young men,
It’s the law of the jungle for them.
They piled in the Chevy – five angry young men,
It’s the law of the jungle for them.
They know where to find the gunman,
And Billy has to be revenged.

The Beatles' I, Me, Mine, I Dig a Pony, and Here Comes the Sun, since they did such a fantastic job covering She Said, She Said.

Really liked "Goin' Down" on the DVD so along that line I'll suggest

"Alright Now" by Free, and for fun how about Funk 49?

In a Gadda Da Vidda

Turn Matt loose on the drums.

On the Zeppelin theme, I could suggest many, but How Many More Times jumps out at me right now.

AC/DC - Hells Bells

20th Century Man by the Kinks

How about an entire rendition of Tommy or Quadrophenia, and bring up Daltrey and Townsend periodically to jam with them.

Mule already performs the song that became How Many More Times, "How Many More Years" by Howlin' Wolf. I would love to see the Mule bring back Kind of Bird.

Is the version of How Many More Years/How Many More Times on any available Mule CD's? I bet that kicks ass.

Kind of Bird would be cool.

I thought we were discussing non ABB type covers.

Well Kind of Bird is a song the Mule has done in the past with Woody on the thundering bass, and their version kills the ABB version, so I'd like to see that one resurface (it is a cover, after all). I'd like to see what it would be like with Andy on bass and Danny playing some keys solos.
In response to your question, no, How Many More Years is not on any Mule official CD that I know of. However, the kind people on this board would be happy to provide you with some tasty versions of it being played live. One of my favorite versions is 9/20/01 from the Warfield. And yes, any version you find of this song will kick ass.

Now that'd be cool!

How about some Barnstorm stuff, too...like "Mother Says," "Meadows," or "Turn to Stone?"

Mule's How Many More Years is awesome. Usually it comes out of Bad Little Doggie, but I saw them go to it from Mother Earth once. THAT was heavy.

Always wanted to hear Warren cook the acoustic intro to VH's "Take Your Whiskey Home" then break into the heavier part on the Les Paul.

Good thread, lots of good song selections.
Two covers I wouldn't mind hearing are David Allen Coe's (Warren's old boss) - The Ride
and also the Beatles - Helter Skelter

Thought of another one... I'd be very interested to hear what Warren could do with Marley's "Sun is Shining". Also, Neil Young's "Hurricane"

On Warren's forum there's a "New Mule Covers" (I think that's the title) that's been running for a long time. Lot's of good stuff there. I think Warren and Danny could smoke up a great "Frankenstein."
