Biography

Everybody loves surprises, that feeling of not knowing what might be around the next corner -- and that’s exactly the vibe that Widespread Panic gives off every time they unleash a new album. Sometimes that means taking listeners on a nice, smooth ride, and sometimes it means making ‘em hold on tight, but either way, it means the trip is gonna be worth it.

Editorial Reviews

Widespread Panic's Wood combines fan favorites and first time played songs from the band's 11-date, four-city dubbed ''2012 Wood Tour'' which was Panic's first-ever fully acoustic tour. The Sold out tour began on January 24 with two nights at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD, followed by three nights at The Tabernacle in Atlanta, GA, January 27-29, then to CO for three nights at The Fillmore -Denver, February 10-12 and wrapped up with three shows at the intimate Belly Up-Aspen in Aspen, CO, February 17-19.

Versatility is the name of this band. Their instruments range from mandolin and dobro to mystifying percussion. Their genres range from bebop jazz and blues to ballads. This singular album is a well-executed sampler of their road capabilities captured from their performances in Aspen, Atlanta, Denver and DC during their recent WOOD tour.

As one reviewer has already mentioned, SELL, SELL is angry and hypnotic, with virtuosic performances from all sides of the ensemble. But the covers work, too. THE BALLAD OF JOHN AND YOKO is a song filled with universals, and that's the stuff on which the band chooses to focus.

While the packaging is spare, the discs arrive in pristine condition along with a coupon code to download an mp3 version of the album with a more extensive booklet. The sonics are just fine for live outings, particularly with cuts drawn from so many locales, dates and performance spaces.

As this band emerged, they evolved from a bluesy jam band to an ensemble rooted in jazz and classic rock. In the process, they have demonstrated on these two generously-timed discs, a virtuosity, drive and quiet rage that will appeal to fans of Tedeschi-Trucks, Warren Haynes, Little Feat (retro) and the Allman Brothers.

The only caveat, perhaps, is that some vocalists are stronger than others, but ain't it true?

Purchase without fear, and enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Way better than I thought it would be! December 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I had not seen any ads for this CD so when I was notified on Amazon via their "ads" I was curious. My son and I saw them open for Allman Bros. in 2009 and Jimmy Herring made our jaws hit the floor. I have always been a fan of Panic way before that concert.I thought the CD was recorded better than their electric concerts that they have out. Being a bassist, I really liked the sound of Dave School's bass (and of course, his playing is amazing!).I even thought John Bell's singing was great on the CD. ( No offense, I just never cared for his vocals) Great songs (every one!), fantastic performances(really tight and all had moments to shine) I buy a lot of music and this is definitely one of my favorites of 2012.More people should check these guys out (along with early Wishbone Ash!)

Until about late 2011 or so I was pretty much unaware of Widespread Panic as a band. Guitar Player magazine highlighted Jimmy Herring, their lead guitar guy, in a feature article and it really caught my attention. My good friend here in Helena, MT, had been banging on me to give these guys a listen and so we set up a 'pizza & tunes' night at his house and he played their studio album, Dirty Side Down, in its entirety for me. (He sort of cheated as we were listening to it on vinyl and the sound was naturally rich and thick with tone.) I was dumbstruck by how good they were and sort of confused as to why I hadn't heard anything about these guys prior to recent events - the article and the listening session.

This band started in 1986, so it isn't like they're 'new' or anything like that. They play a certain style that seems to be all their own - something akin to that of the Grateful Dead. I would say they're sort of a Jam Band in their overall execution - lots of fairly long, extended songs based on a catchy, infectious groove. The more I listen to them, the more I like them - nice to be able to say that.

Mr. Herring was brought in to replace their original lead guitarist who died young from pancreatic cancer. I'm not overly familiar with their earlier work so I can't say anything as to a comparison between the two. However when Guitar Player magazine does a feature article on you, you've got some chops.

One cool aspect of the band is that no one person is ever put up as the MAIN GUY. All musicians get their place in the sun, and every one is definitely a master of his instruments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wood August 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Widespread Panic a live acoustic show. God what's not to love about this latest release. I am a die hard fan and was introduced to them at Back Door Records in Johnson City T.N. in late 1994. This band is noted for being in the Jam Band community. Their live shows are amazing. For this album they did a few of their well known songs such as Tall Boy, What impressed me was the covers they played - Jimmy Cliff's Many Rivers To Cross. I totaly loved the John Lennon cover of The Ballad Of John & Yoko. Over all a fantastic album. Enjoy - Richard Glenn

This is nice collection and another example of Panic never getting stale. I'm just not a huge fan of unplugged Panic.
