Widespread Panic are one of those bands that for some reason never made it big in Europe, despite annual sold out European tour (than again they do have a hard core group of fans that follow them around the world, so that's cheating a bit). It might have something to do with the fact that their a jam band, comparable to the Grateful Dead, Phish and the Allman Brothers Band. But... once you've seen this band live, or heard this excellent live album you'll be convinced that this must be remedied. As stated before Panic is a jam band so in these live performances it's kind of hard to tell where one song begins and the other ends. This however only adds to the magic of this live experience. This album contains songs taken from several shows, to quote the vocalist/guitarist John Bell "We have highs and lows. It's jazzlike in a very primitive sense, but once every 20 shows, it's really heavy. Time kind of slows down. And that's what we were hoping to capture - that twentieth show." (Maximum Guitar, August 1998) For this album the band recorded 400 shows, that's 20 twentieth shows, and it shows. Need I say more?
