Do you mean "The Same Thing"? They've played that Willie Dixon tune a few times. Never heard of "The Real Thing"

The Real Thing is a song by Warren Haynes recorded with Phil Lesh and Friends and now a regular part of his acoustic solo repotoire. The Same Thing was played at Jones Beach this year I believe.

You have to hear this song it is one of Warrens best!! I love The Same thing also, but I have seen them play it. They have never played "The Real Thing" and I think they should since it is such a great song...Sorry bout the duplicate post ..I screwed up.

Oh, if Warren puts The Real Thing into rotation with ABB....oh my....

It surely is a beautifully played song. When Warren toured with PLF, oh, those days were glorious. His harmony AND melody during that period really showed me what that man is made of. He has true grit for so many Mule songs (and some ABB songs / covers), so to hear him do something so soft like this song....well it just blows me away. I have heard The Real Thing acoustic once (maybe twice), and it is a tear-jerker, for me anyway. Even the recorded version gets the ole' eyes a brimmin'.

But The Same Thing is also an awesome tune, and the Brothers do a great job with that. They have played it several times in the last few years, as far as I know.

I have seen Warren play it with Phil and Friends and acoustic and it was great..I really think it would fit well with how the Allmans have been playing lately, I would not have suggested this 2 years ago.

The Real Thing

He wore a song around his neck
Like some medal of honor
He carried his wisdom like a knife
An empty pocket was a temporary chain
Knowing you've got it coming
Ain't no crime

Every blue note that rolled off his tongue
You could feel his soul twisting right in two
Nobody knew where he came from
Ah but everybody knew, everybody knew

He was the real thing
No doubt about it
The kind that you remember when they're gone
The real thing
Put here for a reason
We knew someday the whole world
Was going to know his name
He was the real thing

She whispered in his ear, and he heard the thunder
Singing 'bout a world he never knew
Head spinning round, he began to wonder
Was he made to love her, or born to sing the blues

He searched inside him for an answer
But all he found was a troubled mind
He left her somewhere on the blue highway
Oh it wasn't just another love that he left behind

It was the real thing
No doubt about it
The kind that you remember when it's gone
The real thing
Not like passion's fire
But a burning, smoldering, eternal flame
It was the real thing

And sometimes at night he longs for her whisper
But he hides from the dawn, 'cause he always wakes to find her gone

In some broken down dressing room in some major city
The thunder plays an old familiar tune
He spies a face of a distant angel
Outside, beneath the halo moon

Finger on the trigger, needle in the vein
One more bullet, it might be your last ride
This is ain't no no-show, this ain't no nervous breakdown
And it sure as hell ain't the time to let the fool decide

This is the real thing
No doubt about it
Who cares if they love you and you're gone
This is the real thing
So you were put here for a reason
But what gives you the right to quit when you're tired
Anyway boy, this ain't no game
This is the real thing

He wore a song around his neck
Like some medal of honor
He carried his wisdom like a knife

Anything off the album they made together would be great to hear again. I, too, would hate to have those great songs just be put on a shelf somewhere...

...although I play that album very often. And my copy of the Burlington VT show they did where Warren made me cry during Into The Mystic......

Oh man.

Ah, ok, I'm not a big Mule fan, so that explains that. I love Warren, but I'm glad they leave Mule tunes for Mule shows and ABB material for ABB shows - it doesn't translate well. "Rockin' Horse" is enough of a dose of Mule for ABB sets in my opinion.

great tune. I'd love to hear the ABB or the Mule play this.

I was lucky enough to be at this show:
http://www.phillesh.net/philzonepages/friends_stuff/setlists/020521.html

It was killer getting to see that band in such a small venue.

That Phil Lesh album had some good tunes on it. Would love to hear The Real Thing too. Also, Night of The Thousand Stars is definitely an Allman Brothers sounding song. Would love to hear the Mule perform Welcome to the Underground.

Although it is not factually direct, you can't help thinking of Allen Woody when you hear the Real Thing. Along with Banks of the Deep End it is a sorrowful tribute to a life needlessly lost. Note my signature.

The Real Thing is an awesome song. I would love to here them play it, BUT since they are playing with PL&F in Charlotte, Phil would probably or hopefully have it in his set list.


Got my tickets to charlotte yesterday!!!!!!

Phil would not play it without Warren and even when Warren was part of his band at Mt. Jam they did not play it. I would like to see Mule do it because as much as I like Warren's solo version, I really like the electric version with the organ as well.

Your right, without Warrens vocals, it would not be the same.
