I was a Woody fan from his days with ABB. I didn't really check Mule out until after his passing, actually, until I joined this forum. I missed out on some good stuff, but I have a lot of their studio and live shows to listen to and appreciate now. Matter of fact, my good sister FarmerMaggie hooked me up with several "Best of Woody" Mule compilations dated chronologically from 1994 thru 2000. I was checking out 1997 while getting ready for dinner last night. Man, he was so "in your face" with the bass....bass balls if you will. I sure do miss him. God bless him.

I remember a show in KC, a few days after the Strugis Rally. Somebody brought up a big home made banner for Sturgis and gave it to Woody. He held it up and jumped around the stage with it like a kid with a new toy showing it off to the crowd.

My first Mule show was at the KC Blues and Jazz Festival, must have been 60000 people there that day , I made it right up front.Over 100 degrees, not a breeze or a cloud in the sky when Mule took the stage. They rocked Kansas City into a frenzy on that 100 degree day! What a band, what a show !! squared.

Banks of the Deep End- This song gets me everytime I hear it.


on the banks of the deep end
where your soul is your best friend
searching for a reason
to go astray
wild dreams turn to nightmares
silver clouds turn to golden stairs
and everything that you used to know
is slipping away

here i've got my puzzle-piece
only got it for a short term lease
no time for asking
no going back to get hurt
i take a little from the mixture
try to fit it into the picture
got a place where you're standing
dig your shoes into the dirt

trying hard to get back
runnin' on the stones
put you on my shoulders
we can be the only one
see the world's still spinning 'round
gettin' dizzy when we look

there's a reason to be home
there's a feeling when you smile
but it feels like it might take over
this feeling deep inside
and there's a distance down the line
far away from the station
we can leave it all behind
on a rolling creation
sit away from the window
and lock the door
can't you learn from the last time
and the time before
see the world's still spinning 'round
gettin' dizzy when we look

got to leave town
to see the yellow flowers bloom
sun going down
it's gonna be rising soon

on the banks of the deep end
twisted as a riverbend
searching for a reason to go astray

you couldn't hire twenty-five men
to do what the man could do

just the sound of his walking
could split the whole damn town in two
into the night full of shadows
he still walks when the thunder rolls
this river ain't shallow
reminds us that the bell still tolls

bears in the kitchen
tigers on tv
the singer's pretending
that this song's for me
see the world's still spinning 'round
gettin' dizzy when we look

you took a wrong turn
down by the waterline
i heard they had to drag you off the sand
find a dune and the wind will miss you
hold on to a piece of dry land
got to hold on to a piece of dry land
got to hold on to a piece of dry land

on the bands of the deep end
where i lost my best friend
searching for a reason to go astray

Allen is wearing a Jewish star and a cross in the picture above.
Can anyone shed some light on that ?

My mothers friend does the same thing.

This Woody thread got me thinking of some of the REAL early Govt Mule shows that I was lucky enough to have seen and I saw quite a few. Most of them were in very small places with only 200-300 people. I was on The Mule Trane right from the very beginning... I took a quick look at MuleBase just to see the setlist of the first Mule show I attended waaaay back in 1995. Man, those shows were something else...Never had I heard a power trio with so much dynamics and improvisation. It was like 3 great players with ONE great mind. The Mule is still a fine band today but those early shows with Woody were clearly something unique and special and Capt Al was quite a character when you got to speak with him up close and personal. With all due respect to Cream, Hendrix etc., Govt Mule with Woody was easily the best power trio of all time.

Here is the setlist from my very first Mule show which was almost eleven years ago - it ended at 2:00 AM!...RIP Woody.


6/1/95
New York, NY
Wetlands


1st Set: Mule > Rocking Horse > Mr. Big, Temporary Saint > Trane, Grinnin' In Your Face > Mother Earth, Monkey Hill > She's So Heavy jam > Blind Man In The Dark

Encore: Just Got Paid > Who Do You Love? > Just Got Paid

Setlist Notes: * Hook Herrera on harmonica


...and my 2nd Mule show was just a few months later and only a 10 minute drive away. This show just RIPPED!

12/30/95
Morristown, NJ
Morristown Community Theater

Recordings
1st Set: Mule, Temporary Saint > Rocking Horse, Mr. Big > Never In My Life riff > Mr. Big, Kind Of Bird, Painted Silver Light, The Same Thing, Goin' Out West, Grinnin' In Your Face > Politician > Pygmy Twylyte > Blind Man In The Dark

lovely, lovely photos.

I first saw the Mule play in my hometown of Binghamton, NY at a balloon rally 'spiediefest' - I think it was the summer of the year Woody passed on, possibly one of his last shows? I loved them although the crowd was somewhat small, they got a good reception and the band gave their all, especially Woody

Warren has lost a lot of weight.




Also, I hear that Allen was a sweet guy. With not a bad ass at all. :-)

First exposure to Woody live was the Seven Turns tour.Looking back I remember thinking,well he sure LOOKS like he could play bass for the Allmans. And play he did.

First exposure to live Mule was a small club show in '99,opening for Big Sugar( my ticket stub doesn't even mention Mule...) and having my ears and intestines rearranged by Capt.Al. Got to chat with him a bit after their set too.

We miss ya Allen,RIP.

My first 'Mule show was in Utica, NY at "Captain Tripps Rainforest Preserve" in December, 1995. My good buddy and fellow ABB fan and member of this site, SmatterMonnat, was also in attendance. The club maybe held 200 people. The very next night 'Mule appeared on The Conan O'Brien show. In fact, Matt Abts mentions it and suggests everyone "stay up late" in order to watch it. Anyway, Smatter located a bootleg of the show which was recorded directly through the sound board. It's a great recording. It still brings back very fond memories every time I listen to it. During the show, between tunes, Woody makes a funny comment about his roadie giving him a pink pick. He really rips on him with the crowd. It's quite funny. I couldn't help but think of this show when we both saw 'Mule this past April 30th in good ole Utica once again. Of course this time, they were playing in the beautiful and majestic Stanley Theater. While I definately dig where the "new" 'Mule is going and the efforts of Andy Hess, there's something about the original 'Mule that just sends chills up my spine when your hear what those three musicians were capable of. RIP, Woody....

Allen Woody was the most underrated bass player in the music buisness. The way he used to rip into Whipping Post was amazing. He was a force!!!!!! Thank God he helped form Gov't Mule before he departed. A great legacy !!!!!

Long Live Woody !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was my first Mule show . I had just moved to Baltimore and did not know anyone . I was standing around after the show by myself and Woody came up and started talking to me like I was a friend (I guess I looked alone and lost ) . He was as nice as he was rocking !



(I would love a copy of that show !)
