HASH(0x969c9c3c) out of 5 stars Why only 4 out of 5? 19 Oct. 2001
By Andrew C Weaver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I have no qualms giving it a full 5 out of 5.
This show rocks. The sound and picture quality are phenomenal. This is a benchmark DVD for live music. The format of DVD with all the extras is one thing - but to not deal with VHS hiss, that's a whole other world.
If you know Panic, you know Mikey just sits and plays. You get lots of great close-up shots of the soloing. If you're a guitarist, you can get a sense of his style from the video. This is exactly why Jerry Garcia did not want videos with close ups of his playing.
The setlist for the show is phenomenal - I'm Not Alone, and Papa's Coming Home - will entrance you. Pop it in at 3 AM.

HASH(0x96c1e018) out of 5 stars Even if you were there, it's great to see again 17 July 2002
By Jewel Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Oak Mountain is one of the best venues to see Panic, and this DVD lets you see footage that you can't really see at the show. Both sets rock, and watching Mike, JB, and Schools' hair blowing in the wind lets you see that they're having a good time. Watching this show on a nice set with surround sounds speakers is a mellow way to watch a rockin' show! Any fan should enjoy it - not just diehard fans, but anyone who enjoys the music, even if they don't like the scene. I recommend it late at night, in the easy chair with my boots on.

HASH(0x96682588) out of 5 stars 2.5 hours of sheer pleasure 24 Jan. 2003
By EDF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
I'm a new WP fan and just got this DVD. Basically, it's incredible. The sound is awesome, the camera work is very good (they actually show the band, not the audience), and the playing is great. If it's possible to wear out a DVD I may just find that out.

HASH(0x963b04b0) out of 5 stars Kind of Funny isn't it 21 Aug. 2003
By Austin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
It's amazing to read all of the reviews, aside from ppl who simply don't like the band and see that it's rating is not a 5. Fact of the matter is, everyone who truly appreciates the dvd is a true panic fan, which means they actually have the ability to critique a band they love(fans of John Mayer take note). This DVD is simplly incredible, and while it is not the best show I've seen or heard via bootlegs, it is a pleasure to watch. This would be a welcome addition into anyone's music collection who appreciates the ability to rock out and groove, while sitting back and sippin on a "Tallboy."

HASH(0x963b7b34) out of 5 stars At Last! 1 April 2002
By kireviewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
This contains two discs from one concert. The disc 1 contains the first set, plus "special features". Disc 2 is the second set plus the encore. The concert is just over two and a half hours long. You have a choice of audio in stereo or 5.1. The video and sound quality are excellent. It is filmed in a standard aspect ratio and not widescreen.
The special features are 15 minutes of interviews with the band and a photo gallery. The photo gallery is pictures of the fans and audience. I am guessing that they are mostly of fans attending this show, but some of them look like they may have been taken elsewhere. It is not very interesting, mainly because there isn't a single picture of me (maybe because I didn't attend this show).
This is the first product, since Space Wrangler, that really does justice to the band. On past albums, the group's sound gets muffled. Here, the sound is bright and clear. Having the video go along with the music allows you to really get into the band.
Even JoJo's keyboard playing makes a significant contribution. In the past, his playing has sounded out of place at times and has detracted from the songs. Some of his solos weren't very good. Here he sounds like a different man.
The song selection relies heavily on the recently released Don't Tell the Band. It starts out with Imitation Leather Shoes, which is one of the wierdest and worst songs the band has ever done. It is a strange cross between a sixties pop tune and a hard edged modern day protest song. But after that, all the song choices are excellent. And, unlike the Dave Matthews band, the song selection is completely different than what already exists on other live albums. (Dave Matthews has put out 4 live albums, and there are songs that appear on all 4). For the encore, they do Pink Floyd's Wish You Were Here.
The DVD format is perfect for a group like Widespread Panic. At last there is an opportunity to enjoy the band at what is does best.
