Another memorable night with the Mule. I have to admit, it wasnt as solid as the first night but still a great evening and no real complaints. When you see a band 2 nights in a row and they play for 3 hours each night, there are going to be a couple of moments that dont always give you the goose bump factor. It was only the last 2 songs ( like flies and blind man in the dark) where I was a little disconnected. I like the songs...just nothing really new added to them. The first set just picked up where the previous night left off. Streamline Woman and Lola gave us the taste of Zep that How Many More Years delivered in full. From there on...look at the jukebox of nasty that got played after that. Stevie, Sly,Traffic, Pearl Jam/Soundgarden and ending it off my fave....Al Greens Take Me To The River.
Set 2 closed off with Patterson Hood from another of my faves, The Drive By Truckers sitting in for a great guitar jam with Warren on Neil Youngs "Cortez The Killer". Great way to close the show.
I loved the two nights with the Mule very much. A musical buffet that left me full and wanting more ( man is that corny...)
Dec 10th is the Black Crowes @ First Ave. Looking forward to that, but will need time to recharge!
