Warren Haynes may love playing music more than anyone. How else can you explain his innumerable appearances on the summer festival circuit, from his own Mountain Jam, to others such as Gathering of the Vibes, where once again he played two lengthy sets in one day? This one, with Railroad Earth as his backing band, showed off some of Warren’s solo material, which is of a piece with his Gov’t Mule work — blues-inflected rock with an eye toward tradition, freshened for the modern audience. Also in line with Warren’s Mule sets, after kicking off with his own songs like “Company Man,” Warren and RRE headed into cover territory, firing off Grateful Dead’s “China Doll” (joined by Bill Kreutzmann) and Fleetwood Mac’s “Gold Dust Woman,” among others. As always, nobody was having a better time than Warren, who shredded through the songs with a vigor that would impress someone half his age. I can’t imagine a music festival without him.
I recorded this set with Schoeps MK4V microphones in the official taper’s section. The sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!
