first_imgBack in 1994, Warren Haynes and Allen Woody conceived Gov’t Mule as a fun side project to fill time between Allman Brothers Band tours. Now with thousands of shows under their proverbial belts, the band has cemented its place as one of the greats within the jam scene. It all started with one fateful recording session, with Haynes, Woody, and drummer Matt Abts, held at the Tel-Star Studios in Bradenton, FL in June of 1994. A full 22-years later, it goes without saying that there was some magic in the Mule.After all this time, fans will have an opportunity to relive the magic, as the band has announced The Tel-Star Sessions. Due out on August 5th via Evil Teen Records, The Tel-Star Sessions capture ten glorious tracks that were intended to be the Mule’s debut album. Instead, the studio session will see the light of day in 2016, complete with CD, digital, and 180-gram vinyl release.In celebration of the archival selection, the band has shared the leading single; a cover of ZZ Top’s “Just Got Paid.” Listen to the new single below, courtesy of CoS:The Tel-Star Sessions is due out on August 5th, and the full tracklisting can be seen below.
