With bassist Allen Woody and drummer Matt Abts fulfilling the "power trio" quota for any blues-rock outfit, Haynes and Gov't Mule evolved from a bluesy Southern rock-influenced party jam-band into a scary, slow-driving-but-lead-footed blues-rock leviathan. By the time of the band's legitimate studio debut, 's Dose , they had blown up into a blimp-sized live performance monster; Hayne's take on Son House's traditional "John the Revelator" will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck.
They were originally known as the "New Yardbirds," as guitarist Jimmy Page's pick-up band scrambled to fulfill his former band's performance obligations, and maybe pick up a few dollars. By the time that Page, bassist John Paul Jones, drummer John "Bonzo" Bonham, and banshee vocalist Robert Plant finished up the tour, changed their name to Led Zeppelin , and entered the studio to record their debut album, they had developed their titanic new sound.

Clearly this album is more bassist Bill Gagnon's with his excellent funky playing he's also the producer , even if his closing track, the aptly titled Guess Who's Coming To Jam is relatively hard to integrate. The album is a bit schizophrenic sharing some pure acoustic songs on half the tracks and some hard jazz-rock on the other half.
Needless to say that for the proghead's interest those last ones are the most interesting, but compared to their first live album, their fusion is harder-driven, more extreme and if well recorded, not always easy on the brains.
Some of the album's highlights are the superb and dramatic brass section Walter's Van and the highly intricate Machine Infernale where one of the riffs resembles strongly The Who's Who Are You track some three years before the time , both Gagnon pieces. So this live album shows a fairly different side of the group , but at the same time, it confirms the group's direction of a jazz-rock inferno that was rivalling and being as innovative as Mahavishnu or early Weather Report social review comments Review Permalink Posted Wednesday, February 7, Review this album Report Review Recorded in one night at the Theatre St Jean in January 74, this double vinyl presented a weird sideways artwork and the music that went along this gatefold was just as puzzling.
While the majority of the tracks present an excellent fusion-jazz, some tracks were not always that well inspired either and the succession was sometimes chaotic.
Some of the singing especially the female ones may even appear a bit weak or out of place, but nothing shocking and this is a bit of a minor flaw that is quickly offset by the many spontaneous nature of the evening. Shop by category. Electric Blues.
