Despite my GF inisting this is some sort of position....I'm fairly new to the band. I've listened to some of the streams at work as background music, and really like it. Is there a CD or something that experienced listeners would recommend as a WSP 101 introduction as prep for the show this Summer for me, and my buddies who don't know them?

Thanks

Greg

Love the Live stuff Vs. the studio stuff. Favorite LIVE cd is "Light Fuse , Get Away " http://www.amazon.com/Light-Fuse-Away-Widespread-Panic/dp/B00005ABJI

In addition to the other CDs mentioned, I like "Ball" and "Don't Tell the Band."

I am psyched to see them!

I've been a fan since the early 90s. I'm not a fanatic but I've seen them with Jimmy Herring now three times. I would listen to some of the free .mp3 live cuts they stream on their website. I'd recommend "Ain't Life Grand" and "Til The Medicine Takes" as two of their most accessible albums. Good songwriting on those two in particular.

I also saw them many times in the 1990s and Jimmy Herring has def re-invigorated my interest. 2 of the 3 shows I have seen with him in the band were great. One was good but they just didn't play enough of the material I would want to hear...but I'll def see them once on this dual ABB/WP tour.

My wife and kids all took a liking to Don't Tell The Band. All of us liking the same disc is rare. Although my 6 year old really only likes Big Woolly Mammoth for obvious reasons.

1st 3 albums are great, my favorite their self-titled 2nd album, their 3rd one "Everyday" is also very good.
Heading down to Florida for vacation with the Family but Monday the 13th I'll be at The House of Blues Orlando for the 1st of a 3 night stand by Widespread Panic.

I would recommend the three CD release "Live in the Classic City."

If we're talking albums, "Everyday" and "Bombs and Butterflies" are must haves as well.

Classic City is, I think, somewhat more accessible to the average new fan than Light Fuse though both are classics.

The place to start with these guys is their first disc - "Space Wrangler" - IMO. A bunch of classic Panic tunes are on here and you still get some of the jamming that the band is known for. You can't go wrong with Porch Song, Coconuts, Driving Song, Chilly Water, Travelin' Light, and the title track. All are Panic staples.

Love Live in Classic City. Pre-Herring but it's got some great tracks (and some very nice guest artists - long haired blonde kid for one )

Everyday is generally considered their best studio album, its got lots of classics on it. LFGA is incendiary.

I'm pretty much old school...you can't have enough Panic with M. Houser.
Nothing against Herring or even McConnell (who I liked), but WSP with Houser was second to none. They were sick shows and the jams were a little tighter and they just segued from song to song..like a thing of beauty.

Start from the beginning and work your way to the present....better appreciation for the band.

In the past few months, somebody posted a youtube link to Panic doing an outdoor show somewhere . Hering was doing all these eerie volume swells . I can't find the thread or song title. Can anybody clue me in on this song ?
