Stoop So Low

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Govt Mule's tenth album Shout!, which comprises two discs: one of new material and the other featuring a group of notable artists interpreting those songs. This song features Dr. John. "That was in honor of Sly & the Family Stone's Fresh, the 40th anniversary," said frontman Warren Haynes. "When I listened back to my vocal performance, it started reminding me more of Dr. John, and we were about to be on tour with Dr. John and I thought, 'Well, maybe I should ask Mac to sing the low verses or something."
  • Like most of the songs on Shout!, the guest artist version differs significantly from the Gov't Mule treatment. "In almost every case, we specifically, intentionally changed the arrangement -- sometimes before the sang the song and sometimes after they sang the song. We were consciously not wanting to offer the same arrangement twice," Haynes told Billboard magazine. "I think everybody delivered above and beyond what was expected, but that's what you would expect of these people. These are great singers that I genuinely love and respect, and so it's only appropriate that each of them would take the song somewhere that I would never think of."
