"Woke up singing a dead man's song..." is the opening line from the Warren Haynes original song / album title, Heavy Load Blues, a line of imagery that feels like the beginning of dirt. Blues. On this album, Gov't Mule plays blues. Haynes is, of course, the leader of Gov't Mule, hailing from a Southern rock tradition of scruffy virtuosity. Gov't Mule is Warren's show and the blues, is the informing foundation, personal and universal.

Blues is a feeling. Something you know when you hear it. Heavy Load Blues has Hayne's originals and reinventions of songs by Bobby Bland, Junior Wells, Elmore James and Tom Waits, to name a few. Haynes makes these songs spring to a new life, while paying an homage to the music and culture of the music that has inspired him and his band. Fantasy is proud to present this Warren Haynes / Gov't Mule contribution to the art form, this American soul treasure.
