No 'Bear Gone Fishing'??

It's a great essential collection of Panic songs, but the glaring omission of 'Bear Gone Fishing' is pretty unforgiveable. I know these are record company cash cows and all, but this song just has to be on the album. I do like the mix of live and studio tracks, as they are known for being a live band.

Only Live is "Essential"

You just can't put a collection of studio recordings together and call it "Essential Widespread Panic." Not with this band. This is a LIVE band, and missing are some of the most loved live fan favorites: Bears Gone Fishing, Porch Song, Pilgrims, Arleen, & Last Straw. If you want an essential collection from iTunes, & you're new to WSP, start with one from the vault such as Huntsville 1996 for a true snapshot of this band. Otherwise, head over to Panicstream for the real deal.


Summertime in Athens '87

Back in the day Panic was the Phi Delt house favorite band (the Fry Delts) - Many a nite on some balcony/roof overlooking the band, crowd - Remember seeing them when only 'Spread Heads saw them - Saw these guys @ a cotillion in a Country Club in a small N. GA town - Went with this chubby red-haired girl just to see the band - Love the old stuff - Enjoy - I am!
