Don't know much about Wide Spread Panic but will see them with the ABB a couple times later.

Can anyone recommend an Instant Live or other CD that would be a good intro ?

Light Fuse Get Away - killer live album.

or you can stream to your heart's content w/ here:

http://www.panicstream.com/vault.htm

check out some of the Winter 1996 shows from their infamous Sit-n-Ski Tour, lots of acoustic and the band really stretched their legs in preparation for things to come. the Spring 96 shows really benefited from the SnS tour work. and Light Fuse is from their 97 tours. they are really hittin the note on LFGA.

Widespread Panic has an open taping policy so you can find tapes for free all over the internet. check:

You can download all of these shows: http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=tLvloFY3aDP4dHWMnzHwgww&output=h tml

use http://bt.etree.org or http://www.digitalpanic.org for torrent downloads, for high quality flac files

http://www.panicstream.com will let you stream a show. Navigate through the years and find a good show to listen to there.

If you're interested in buying a soundboard show, these two come highly recomended:

As for albums, you might want to try Free Somehow, Jimmy Herring's first album with the band as lead guitarist.

If you're in for some of the classic Panic, find Light Fuse, Get Away, Everyday, or Ain't Life Grand.

Light Fuse has to be in the top five of all time for commercially relaeased live albums - and that is really saying something. And yes, Fillmore East tops that list, imo.

Live in the Classic City is a good one, too. Some very good guest appearances on this one.

any live panic is great...like the allman brothers they do there best work live.....you might be surprised seeing panic live...they are probably the best live band out there in the jam band genre other than the allmans and at times their incredible 3 hour plus shows can be the equal in my view...and this is comng from one of the great allman brothers fans..the addition of jimmy herring has made them an absolute powerhouse

I'll throw in support for Light Fuse...Get Away! It was the first Panic CD I ever heard (first of their music I ever heard also) and I've been hooked since it came out.

Live in the Classic City or Light Fuse, Get Away would be the two that I would say to look for.

Live from Carbondale 2000 .....no question

It is part of their archive release similar to the Brothers. Just trust me on this one. It can be found on amazon or itunes or anything like that

I'm blessed that my local watering hole plays a lot of their live stuff. Very enjoyable, looking forward to seeing them live. Lots of buzz here around the double bill, and twofer.

I also love Ball as a studio recording... George McConnell got a really bad rap with the WSP fans. I thought he did pretty decent actually, filling Houser's shoes was not an easy job.

That said, they are in great hands with Herring now obviously.

If you like the music and want to see some great behind the scenes stuff from a couple of years ago when Michael Houser was in the band check out The Earth Will Swallow You on DVD, it is one of my favorite documentary style dvd's along with Please Call Home and Rising Low. It is a couple of years old but I think you can still find it.

Hands-down, for commercial releases, it's Live in the Classic City. Just remember Houser is the guitarist for the shows back then, so that's not exactly what you're going to get. This is the disc that originally sold me on Panic several years ago, and I've seen them nearly 20 times since. As for Jimmy Herring shows, I highly recommend the Camden show from the other night that opened the tour. I saw the show and downloaded it. Pretty high energy, and the setlist was pretty sweet.

Light Fuse is a great jamming album. But for a better cross section of the band's 90's reportoire, Live in the Classic City can't be beat.

I cautiously suggest Everyday . Cautiously because it's the first album I ever heard from them , and the rest just haven't really measured up . Everyday is solid from start to finish . Ball is pretty good too .

I find Ain't Life Grand and Space Wrangler to have the most interesting songwriting and good hooks, overall. Those are always the first two Panic albums I recommend.

They've put out some strong studio ones with those as my favorites.
