Archival album showcases never-before-released demos

The Tel-Star Sessions — Gov't Mule's original 1994 recordings featuring Warren Haynes, Allen Woody and Matt Abts, are available on the Evil Teen Records label. The first single is a take on ZZ Top's "Just Got Paid".

The original leaders of Gov't Mule — Warren Haynes and Allen Woody — were well known to Allman Brothers fans for their stint in Southern rock's most famous native sons band. In 1989, Haynes became the second replacement for Duane Allman, providing a good foil for Gregg Allman and Dickey Betts on guitar and vocals; Woody filled out the Allman sound on bass. Five years after their debut, the duo joined drummer Matt Abts in the side project Gov't Mule, a band in which the Allman Brothers' influence was apparent.

Their 12 track debut had a very blues-based, southern rock vibe to it, containing many of the classic sounds Mule fans have grown to love over the past two decades. What happened before finding that sound is now coming to light with the release of a new archival album titled The Tel-Star Sessions, the band's very first, and never-before-released, demos that were made in 1994.
