Gov't Mule Streaming Full Tel-Star Sessions Online

Gov't Mule

(The Blues) Gov't Mule have made their archival release The Tel-Star Sessions available to stream in full. The record features the band's first demo recordings from 1994. It was meant to be a one-off project for Allman Brothers Band singer and guitarist Warren Haynes and bassist Allen Woody, but it quickly spawned a big audience.

Haynes tells UCR: "We had no designs on being a real band that stays together and makes a second record and a fifth record and a 10th record and tours year after year. We were just doing something for the fun of it.

"Our intention was to put out a really inexpensive, experimental low-budget record. We went into the studio with our own money and recorded these nine songs, which were virtually the only songs we knew at that time.

"There was starting to be an audience and more of a demand for what we were doing, and the feeling within the band was really strong. We were creating all of the time and I was writing more and more new material.

"It just felt like we were growing so quickly that we decided to not limit the repertoire to just those handful of songs and have the first record include a bunch of the newer stuff that I was writing as well." Read more and check out the stream here.
