Overall, The Tel-Star Sessions presents an intriguing snapshot of where Gov’t Mule began and offer further documentation of the early years with Woody, who died in 2000. The nine recordings also provide an interesting point of comparison when looking at how the band has evolved over 22 years and how Haynes has developed as a singer. And then when I heard them recently, I thought, ‘There’s a lot of energy and ferocity coming from those performances that people deserve to hear. When I hear those recordings now, I have a smile on my face. Gov’t Mule have a busy schedule ahead, starting with dates next week with Blackberry Smoke, which will carry them through the beginning of October. In the middle of the run, the band will also play some dates with ZZ Top. I’ve played with Billy and Dusty a few times," Haynes says. Gov't Mule was originally a "project" with no clear goal other than that of exploration. They learned how to interact through covers and originals, and worked up a repertoire to play live. Seven of these demos - including covers of Free's "Mr. Big" and Memphis Slim's "Mother Earth" - were re-recorded for the band's self-titled debut.
