Set 1
Madman Across The Water
Slackjaw Jezebel
All Along The Watchtower
Temporary Saint
Trane->
Eternity's Breath Jam->
St. Stephen Jam
Sugaree
Bad Little Doggie
How Many More Years

Set 2
Stay With Me
Time To Confess
Brighter Days-> In My Time of Dying intro tease
Like Flies
Drums
Child Of The Earth
No Need To Suffer
Rockin' In The Free World with Davy Knowles

Encore
Little Red Rooster Intro->
Mule Little Red Rooster vocal tease and Angel is a Centerfold tease in Danny's solo.

Madman as an opener was wonderful. It kinda started out with a spacey jam that sounded like it could have easily gone right into Fallen Down, but instead(and no complaining here) we got Madman Across the Water and the amount of screaming from people in the audience was quite nice.
I don't think I like how they have been beginning Trane much slower than written and then picking up into the normal tempo of the song. To me it sounds like the band never really grabs ahold of the attack of the song when they start it out slow and work into it fast. Kind of like when they do the jazzy solo in Blind Man. To me, when they do the jazzy interlude the remainder of the song lacks what it is supposed to have.
Not to mention this show was quite long...Mule went on around 8:30 I believe and the show was over at exactly midnight. I don't think I've seen them play 3 and a half hours(other than new years) in quite some time.
And does anyone else think that the volume in Wallingford is a little too low all around? I feel it took away from the show in a way because the full attack wasn't conveyed to the audience due the volume being low...I mean, I could have a conversation with the person next to me while they were playing and we weren't fighting to hear each other speak.

I really enjoyed the show. What a rowdy crowd. I had one guy to my right screaming and another behind me so it took away from me wanting to get video. This is what I got.

Drum solo...

Rockin' In The Free World...

I had thought the opener and How Many More Years were major highlights for me. Also really liked the Red Rooster/Mule thang that was happening!! That Davy Knowles is quite a talent! Man that boy tore it up! Was glad to catch most of his set!!

Heath, sorry we didn't hang more. I was so all over the place due to so many people I knew there. Wonderful meeting Doug and Mulegirl!!! She is an absolute doll!!! Luvthemule from Mule Army and of coarse always enjoy seeing Debi and Pete! Thanks for those pictures from the Peacheaters Parking Lot Jam. You were so kind to take the time and bring them along for me! Never met up with Barb and Bob but did hang with Ang a while of coarse!

All Along The Watchtower was the slower version which was very cool. Like Flies is a great grooving tune also! I had seen them do Stay With Me in Burlington so that's when I was surprised but glad they are putting it in rotation cause it really gets the crowd roaring!

Here's some pictures off mule.net

Hey suk0, I didn't think the volume was low but rather wonderful acoustics all around! I had really nice seats back about 16 rows and thought the sound was excellent from there. Where were your seats?

Also, the band came on just about 8:50 took about a 15 min break just after 10 then played till midnight... boy did we get our $$$ worth!

I agree with Susea. The madman opener and How many more years were
my favs too. I love when waren sings Sugaree also.
The Madman gave me chills up and down my spine!!

I thought last nights show was great. One of the best this year. Madman opener was just breath taking and the rest of the show was wonderful. The guys were just jamming all night. I loved the acoustics of the place. Best sound maybe all year. But the acoustics do allow for people to speak to each other. That is part of the great acoustics of the place though if someone doesn't ever let up with the yapping, it can detract from the show. I had to remind this couple in front of me that yes, I did hear everything they were saying. They left their second row seats after the 3rd song in the first set and never returned. They must have given their tickets to another couple because in the second set, maybe about 3 songs in another couple came to get the seats. But they watched the show so it was great all around. I don't understand how anyone can talk but to say a few words here and there at a Mule how. I just don't understand it. Every year since the first at this venue I found the place to be very formal and rigid, but last night everything was chill all around. It was the best time I ever had at that place.

It was a grueling drive in. White knuckle at times. But it was absolutely well worth it. Especially to see so many friends and to meet so many new people.

Good show, not great, IMO. I wasn't crazy about the setlist, but there were some highlights for me. Loved the Madman opener. Stay With Me was pretty good, not a favorite of mine, but Warren did a great job with it. Rockin In The Free World was a killer with Davey from Back Door Slam taking a ripping solo. I definitely note a great difference in the sound with Jorgen, will take some getting used to for me.

Nice venue, great sound. Had a great time sitting with Doug and the lovely Mulegirl. Nice to see Ang, Deb and Pete, and dinner with Greg and his newly converted Mule friend made for a great evening.

Sorry I missed you, Sue! I did spot Jen in the lobby, but she was too far away for me to get to her.

I love the venue, too, but I have to agree with Barb somewhat -not crazy with the setlist for the 1st set. I thought Madman was an odd choice, tho Warren's take on it beautiful. And I thought his playing & especially his singing was better than ever!
I was so looking forward to this show, since my last Mule show was the Bergen Pac, & I had been drooling over the setlists for the last few weeks. But I loved the 2nd set, Stay With me a great choice for Warren!!
Yes, Ang, the drive coming in from NJ was a little hairy, too. I did see you walking around from afar, but never got close enough to say HI. Same for Doug & Mulegirl By the way, did she like the show?
After a show even tho I'm exhausted I can never sleep, so today I am totally out of it!

Interesting comments from last night.I'd have to agree with ANG while only my 4th show this year including 2 from last years nye run,the set list smoked from start to finish.The reason i love this band so much is that you never know what you are going to here,or how there going to play any one song.Slow start on trane,extended time to confess,madman was one 1 of many high lites for me 1st time i heard them play that just GREAT.Thanks for the down load NYC BARB, have a great sunday everyone & keep on posting.Also thanks for the philly down load ANG

I thought the show was really great. I do not love the songs from High and Mighty and would like to see them start to be diminished in exchange for some lesser played gems from the original era or Deep End era such as I Shall Return or Drivin Rain. The jamming was great and Warren was full of energy and his singing was top notch. I love those unique Mule covers like Madman and Stay with Me is a great great edition to the rotation. I would like to see it extended because that is a raucous song that Warren and Jorgen could really cut loose on.

My first time in Wallingford. I like the Theater and the acoustics are good but it is of course no Beacon.

It was great meeting Susea and sitting with Barb and Bob (and thanks for use of the flashlight!) Also seeing Angela again and everyone else. I look forward to seeing you all in December.

Hey Doug, I would like to hear your take on Jorgen and how you think he fits in. It looks like a pretty solid setlist to me. Some of us are pickier than others I guess. Very rarely do I dislike a Mule setlist although as Doug said I would like to see more of the old rarities. I do like the 'High and Mighty' album, but they seem to play the same three or four songs from it. I would rather start hearing stuff like 'Nothing Again' and 'Endless Parade'. I love 'Streamline Woman' and 'Brand New Angel' but it seems like they get too much play at the expense of the rest of the album.

I like Jorgen and think he fits in well. He seems a little louder and heavier than Andy. I also like High and Mighty but it's a little played out for me over the last two years. I have heard ever single song on the album numerous times. I'm not saying they should drop it but there is no reason there cannot be a show with only one or two songs from H & M or even without a song from that album in exchange for other songs.

To the band's defense (not that I think anyone is bashing them), I think it's kinda like starting over, now with Jorgen on board. He comes with experience, for sure, but he's only been playing with Mule for about 7-8 months, tops. They are probably giving him bits and pieces (man, over 400 songs to learn is a bit much for anyone!!!) and seeing his strengths.

It will take a bit of time, probably, for Jorgen to get it all. I'm a patient woman, and he hasn't disappointed yet! I think we will continue to get those dusty gems from the 90's. I like how they are working their way back into the main Mule playlist. I used to feel the same that some of you do about H & M with Soulshine. Then I just decided that I really did like the song a lot, and how fortunate I was to get to the shows to be hearing it so much.

GET BEHIND THE MULE!!

It's been a long time since I heard Soulshine either by the Mule or by the ABB. I always seem to miss it.

What got me back into Soulshine was all of the fans. They just love this song! The 'peace fingers' up all over the place. My husband got a lighter going recently when we heard it! Warren looks out over the crowd and relishes in what he has created ~ a major Mule fanbase.

My post show discussions with some of us led me to believe that I may have had a few too many...but I am glad to read that others agree that the show was top notch. I felt it was by far the best show I have seen in '08, including Mnt Jam. There was little noticeable dropoff with the loss (and a huge loss it is) of Andy. Jorgen was fine, and will certainly improve. His perfomance Trane was less than impressive. However, his lead on No Need To Suffer, IMO the signiture bass song of the classic Mule catalog, was right on, and even better than some of what Andy has done. There were too many covers, I could live without Madman, and the Dead stuff (even though I love them). But Watchtower, slowed waaaaay down, was very strong, as was How Many More Years, which was dripping with soul. Stay with Me was fun, and a highlight for sure. Child of the Earth is always a highlight for me, and this was no exception.
I agree with Ang about the venue acoustics. It was loud enough to groove, but you could converse if necessary. I thought it was a really good vibe all night long. I was seated towards the back, and just moved further back so that I could dance. Early in the 2nd set, two guys who were leaving offered us their seats dead center, row M. I chalk that up to good karma and a big smile. I think they realized that I would appreciate the upgrade. Thanks guys!!!!
My buddy, a first timer, was very impressed and has already asked me to get him a ticket for 12/30. HUGE thanks to Barb and Mario Andretti (a/k/a Bob) for driving me back and forth, safe and sound, and in exceptional time. The whole night was a really positive experience, no negatives at all.

I absolutely felt that way. I had heard Jorgen do Suffer once before and this one was totally unbelievable. I was never moved to tears with that song in the all the 7 years I've heard it till the CT show.

There is no doubt in my mind that Jorgen is a strong player and see how he fits with the band right from the start. I can feel him at times pushing through; moving beyond what he is used to and being totally willing to allow that transformation. I've seen a lot of bass players with this band and Jorgen definitely has the most aggressive energy of them all. Andy was melodic and bouncy and nuanced. Jorgen has both subtly and power to his playing so I can see why Warren says that Jorgen is between both Allen and Andy. It is a totally accurate assessment.

I agree with everything you said except I LOVE Madman. Warren kills those Elton songs. I wish he would do more. Take Me to the Pilot would rock.
