Whistle This

American Rural Records

Although there's nothing quite like standing there in the front row, this album offers a hardy serving of Mark's roots- based, energy- charged Americana. The songs are real and honest. The band is tight and happy. You can almost hear everybody smiling.

Honest and good country music

Not all bands are able to capture the magic of their work live, but the Texas country outfit Mark Jungers And The Whistling Mules pass the test with flying colours.

Recorded in the main at the states’ famed Gruene Hall in 2006 with additional tracks from a show in 2001 at the Cheatham Street Warehouse in San Marcos, TX Jungers and the boys work up a head of steam. With both venues steeped in history of having many great acts play there, the former famed hall is especially is noted as place where people appreciate real country music.

While Jungers is no Jerry Jeff Walker or Chris Wall or for that matter Robert Earl Keen, Texans who shoot straight from the hip and revel in surroundings of the likes of Gruene Hall but, through the nine songs from there he does enough to suggest he may one day bring crowds equal to the above.

Maurice Hope, Americana UK

Whistle This is a new release of rather old live recordings — from 2006 at Gruene Hall and 2001 at Cheatham Street Warehouse. Make no mistake, though: This is the good stuff! Jungers and his Whistling Mules sound great singing and playing many of their best songs, like "Conviction," "We Talk," "It Ain't Funny," and their better-than-the-original cover of Jason Ringenberg's "Price of Progress." Wes Green's mandolin is always a pleasure, Adrian Schoolar's lead guitar is a skillful, Josh Flowers's bass is clean and on time. I really dig that Jungers plays without a drummer — the sound is full enough. The tracks from 2001 are interesting, because you can detect the relative youth in Jungers's voice, however many beers and cigarettes ago. Plus, it's nice to hear Dave Ray playing bass on those older tracks, but then, maybe I'm just a "Sentimental Guy.
