Gov’t Mule, as a part of their ongoing 20th anniversary series of archival live recordings, is releasing an album documenting their famed 2006 New Year’s Eve show at New York’s Beacon Theatre, featuring guest Toots Hibbert of Toots & the Maytals. The album, which is available as either a single CD, a 3CD+DVD special edition, and a double LP, is titled Dub Side of the Mule and, unsurprisingly, features the band’s takes on a number of classic reggae tunes.
The single disc and double LP versions center on the band’s reggae tunes and features Hibbert on nearly every song. The special edition covers the entire concert and, in addition to the set with Hibbert, features guest appearances from Greg Allman & Friends and John Popper of Blues Traveler.
Dub Side of the Mule will be released on April 6. Check out the band and Toots performing the Maytals classic “Pressure Drop” below:
