Dark Was The Night, Cold Was The Ground

The legendary and hard-working Gov’t Mule has returned with a special Deluxe 2CD + 2DVD album, Bring On The Music: Live At The Capitol Theater, which was recorded in Port Chester, NY on April 27th and 28th, 2018. Anyone familiar with this band’s live performances will know that this will be an excellent album. If you’ve never had the opportunity to see them live, then this is an album to pop on the headphones and experience as if you’re there in the audience. With superb production values, and crystal clear sound, it truly captures the presence and feel of this incredible band.


Recorded to be released on the band’s 25th anniversary, the band, as always is led by the indomitable Warren Haynes, who’s smooth vocals are the centrepiece of this masterclass in musicianship and live performance. Featuring more than five hours of live music, as well as a full-length concert film, interviews with the band, behind-the-scenes footage, photos shot by Danny Clinch over the years, and more, Bring On The Music: Live At The Capitol Theater doesn’t lend itself well to a track by track commentary.


While a brilliant recording, it is perhaps a touch too long for the average music consumer in our current digital age, however if you are a fan, then this will be the perfect album for you. Taken from the Gov’t Mule song of the same name, title track ‘Bring On The Music’ refers to the band’s treasured relationship with their fans, and touches upon the passing of time and appreciating life’s journey. Assembled like a love-letter to the Mule faithful, the core audience for this album, Bring On the Music: Live At The Capitol Theater delivers in every way.

Ratings: 8/10
