After Nürnberg on Wednesday we saw another unbelievable show in Winterbach yesterday.
It´s amazing how their shows always have an individual character every night and how different (in the best possible way) they are from each other: while the show in Nürnberg started out with rather "obscure", unexpected songs (opened with Maggot Brain) that I´ve never heard live before and morphed into an intense jam-song night culminating in a breathtaking "Cortez the Killer", the show in Winterbach seemed to be a "best of Mule" setlist. You just know that nothing can go wrong if they start with Bad little doggie - Lola leave your light on - Any open Window - Inside Outside Woman Blues. To hear that and THEN I´ll be the one (with Blue Sky) and THEN the incredible cover of Levee breaks and if that wasn´t enough -- Into the Mystic on top of that...I was ready to start crying at that point.
This is a band that plays their soul out each and every night - they have what music is all about. You never know what you´re gonna get, but you always know that you will come out of the show feeling like you´ve experienced "soulshine", if you will.....
Can´t wait for Hot August Blues next month!
