Gov't Mule is the debut studio album by the American band Gov't Mule. The album was produced and mostly recorded live by Michael Barbiero at Bearsville Sound Studios, with many tracks running into each other. "Mule" is still a concert favorite, and "Rockin' Horse" was later recorded by the Allman Brothers Band when Warren Haynes rejoined the group for the album Hittin' the Note.

Rolling Stone wrote that "the Mule kick with punishing metal force... Woody and drummer Matt Abts hammer out a bottom-heavy platform from which Haynes can grandstand."[3]
