DARK SIDE OF THE MULE - GOV'T MULE

Dark Side of the Mule, recorded during a Halloween 2008 show at the Orpheum Theatre in Boston, features all the well-known Pink Floyd tracks you’d expect — with a few lesser-known ones for color. Particularly effective is “Fearless,” originally from Pink Floyd’s Meddle. Here, Haynes wistfully captures the essence of the Gilmour/Roger Waters original, while the crowd noise almost mirrors the sound effects of the original Floyd recording. On “Pigs on the Wing Pt. 2,” Haynes appears solo with his electric guitar and builds a track arguably more powerful than the original Waters performance on Animals. “Shine on You Crazy Diamond” finds Gov’t Mule flirting with disaster. Carlsson doesn’t try to duplicate the keyboard textures constructed by late, underrated Floyd keyboardist Richard Wright, yet his passage is just a mesmerizing. Warren Haynes seems challenged and inspired by the keyboardist, which results in a blistering collection of blues licks — and a vocal which matches that intensity. Abts almost seems to restrain himself to copy the original drum track of Nick Mason.
