Brilliant concept. Record an album, and then re-record it with guest vocalists, which may involve adding a little difference to the original album. I stumbled over this due to an advert in a magazine that highlighted that Myles Kennedy is one of the guests. Great singer...and this alone tweeked my curiosity. Glad it did.

This is a fine, fine record with great guitar work, sublime playing as a band and some stunning songwriting. A classic Southern blues base feel mixed in with a variety of styles. There are albums you know immediately that you only listen to for a short period of time....and then there are albums like this that you know you will still be listening to in 10, 20 years time.

The beauty of Ipods etc is that I now have 3 versions of this album, CD1 (original band version) CD2 (with guests) and a playlist that has my favourite versions regardless of singer. The guests include Myles Kennedy, Grace Potter, Stevie Winwood, Elvis Costello, but the real star is Warren Haynes, whom's band you are listening to.

My Favourites?? Captured, Whisper In Your Soul and When The World Gets Small......you guess which version.

If your fingers hovering over the "add to cart" button....press it...buy it. A supremely worthy surprise.

I've invested in the 4-LP vinyl box-set of the "SHOUT!" album and it's a mighty chunk of music!

It's very good value on vinyl - most single LP issues cost £12-£20 nowadays, so £22 for this big set is a great price.

It's beautifully presented in heavyweight black vinyl, two 180gm discs for the 'regular' (Gov't Mule) version of the set, and two 180gm discs in red vinyl for the 'guest' version of the set.

They're housed in thick card LP sleeves with an attractive radial design, and the LPs slide into their own hefty gatefold sleeves, which are different for each 2-LP set, not just a repeat gatefold for the 'guest' LPs.

There's an outer sleeve to house the whole lot (that perhaps could have been a little thicker and it must be one of the most impressive 4-LP issues you're ever likely to come across. There's a huge poster of the front cover graphic included in the package.

As others have already said, the music is hefty too, with tough bluesy wedges of guitar-driven blues-rock in the inimitable forceful Gov't Mule style, a very satisfying collection and it's clear that Warren Haynes' musical mission is still well on track.

This chunky LP set will take up substantial space in your shelving, and the music will take up substantial space in your brain, too - play often, and LOUD!

I have been a fan of the Mule for well over a decade. Seen them live twice (sadly they rarely visit the UK shores).

Over the past years they have become very much my favourite band of all, and this latest album does not in any way let them down in my estimation, indeed quite the opposite.

While it doesn't quite have the instant catchy jaw-dropping 'wow' factor that 'High and Mighty' evinced, after a few listens one becomes very aware of the sheer quality and creativity of these guys. They have no peers in the blues-rock field, in my humble opinion.

And the second CD is a revelation in itself.

Well done and thank you, Warren, Matt, Jørgen and Danny. You give a lot of pleasure to a lot of people. This is blues/southern rock at its very best. Seven stars out of five.

But PLEASE come to play in London more than once a year!!!???

I love the Mule. I discovered them back on their third album, LBI, and never looked back. I think Warren Haynes is a master songwriter and definitely one of the best singer/guitarist of our generation.

It may be just me, but I feel the song writing has become a bit less original since 2006 High and Mighty. Great songs nevertheless, but I long for those anthems that all their previous albums delivered.

In any case, I recommend this album for anyone looking for a great record made by world class musicians. It won't disappoint.

Long live The Mule!

I'm pretty new to Gov't Mule, Shout was the second new vinyl record I have bought since getting back into the vinyl scene and I honestly haven't regretted it. There are enough 5 star reviews here from fans with I'm sure are far more knowledgeable about the band so I won't try to compare them with any other but I will just to say that I haven't found a single track that I dislike. Looking forward to breaking the seal on Dark Side of the Mule later.

If you're one of those 'elder' folk like me who are depressed by all the 'twerking' and rapping going on these days and might just think that REAL music is a relic of a lost golden age which us elder folk (I'm 54 btw) refer to with dewy eyes when chastising the modern image and bling, bling obsessed soft porn that passes for music today, I'd advise you to take a listen to this. The music is a varied mixture of styles, from Blues (Captured) through Soul (Stoop So Low) through Reggae (Scared To Live) through Rock (World Boss, Funny Little Tragedy, Bring on The Music) and through Country (Forsaken Savior) all done with taste, skill and above all genuine 'passion'. All the tracks are excellent but for me Captured, Scared to LIve, Forsaken Savior and Funny Little Tragedy are the stand outs. Sound quality is excellent for audiophiles and Warren Haynes' voice and particularly his guitar improvisions are first rate. This is a reaffirmation of modern music by going back to its roots - buy it!

Got this as a Christmas present. The best piece of guitar based rock/blues I've heard and enjoyed in years!! The second CD is a great bonus, but, the CD done by the band is the best. Have been listening to it since I got it and still haven't tired of ot yet. LOVE IT!!!!!!

Very good Govt Mule album - the second album where they reprise the first with the help of guests provides some interesting perspectives. Not their greatest work for that I would like more of Warren's great guitar playing.

A very good blues album by a highly rated American group made up of Allman Brothers members and friends. Worth watching on Youtube live.

As usual, a real diversity of musical styles and tracks on this album and then to add to that, a second disc with guest artist performing the songs. This is a really fine album ranging from the musical talent to the production and mixing. A real gem for any one who loves guitar, blues or just fine music.
