just a heads up that Widespread Panic will be on Austin City Limits tomorrow night. This is a new show (they've been on once or twice before)
here's a preview:

Maybe it is just me, but Panic is one of the most boring bands out there these days. I have tried for years to listen to them, but I just don't hear or see what the big deal is.

I haven't gotten into Widespread Panic all that much...but the one live recording I've heard, I liked. I'd definitely be interested in seeing them on Austin City Limits.

I pretty much enjoy most acts on ACL, even if I didn't previously care for them (prime example, Gnarls Barkley). ACL seems to bring out the best in everybody they have on.

Just read where Leon Russell taped an episode of Austin City Limits this past Sunday (Oct 9th)...gotta keep eyes peeled on the "Local Listings" for when that airs.

I agree with WSP not "clicking" for me either. Here's my dilemma, I Love Jimmy Herring.
It kills me not to be able to get a solid handle on their music. The more I see of them
the better it gets for me, I must admit. I am definetly not all the way there yet, but
I will watch them on Austin City Limits.

Hot Tuna, they totally click with me. I want to see that show as well!

Thanks for the heads-up.

Thanks for the heads up on this. I'm somewhat excited that ACL is the medium here, what a great show. Haven't really had that much exposure to WP, so this will be very cool.

Same here. I really want to like them, and have seen them twice, but it just don't take!

Still, I'll watch ACL, so thanks.

I can sort of see where you guys are coming from . Panic runs either really hot or really cold to me . If I don't like one of their tunes at first listen , it never grows on me . By the same token , if I do like one of their songs , I never tire of hearing it . My introductory album of theirs was Everyday . And to date , it's still the highpoint to me . In other words , I'm not wild about the albums that have followed .

With all of that said , they're tops live and I still dig 'em . I can't wait for ACL tomorrow !

I am one of those who gets WSP, but not everything they do. I've been listening to them since 1991 and have seen them 20+ times since.

I tend to tell people to listen to "Ain't Life Grand." I find it the most diverse vocal album (Houser, JoJo, and Bell all get some mic time), as well as most catchy album. It's the album where they really took off and got them radio airplay. It is still my favorite:

"Ain't Life Grand"

"Blackout Blues"

"Can't Get High"

"Airplane"

I don't get 'em either...but like the majority I keep trying...have seen them numerous times just hoping something will click...the 25th aniv tour shows in Asheville, Sat was good.
They were good opening for the ABB in Birmingham in 09, esp. when Derek came out to jam, Sat. they headlined and didnt impress me.
Watched the ACL show about 1 hour ago (ECT) and it was pretty good. I'll keep trying for Jimmy's sake.

I liked the show and Austin City Limits in general. ACL has a good lineup this fall

Like a lot of people around here, Widespread is band I would to get into, but for some reason haven't been able to fully do so. I think a lot of it has to do with John Bell's singing (don't really care for his voice). Anyway, enjoyed the ACL show last night, especially Jimmy Herrings' playing.

I like WSP. It has really seemed to me that their live shows differ from their albums. I really like their studio stuff. But i highly recommend the live show "Night of Joy" WSP with The Dirty Dozen Brass Band. I just love that album, maybe give that a shot especially if you like horns.

Woodsongs is a live radio show based in Lexington KY and taped at the beautiful Kentucky Theatre. It is generally acoustic and is hosted by folk artist Michael Johnathon. It's been going on for years and they've had some killer acts on the show. A friend of mine runs the sound and I started going to the shows when they first started (in a small studio).

The website, which archives all the shows, is www.woodsongs.com

I'm trying to like WSP. I watched a couple songs on ACL. Really like Jimmy's tone. The band just hasn't clicked for me yet. I went to my first and only so far WSP show last year. The fans went nuts from the beginning to the end of the show. It was pretty amazing. This is probably common knowledge but a friend told me a couple weeks ago that Jimmy's contract is up at the end of this year and he will be moving on.

Hope he moves on to collaborate with Derek....

Managed to squeeze in a viewing of ACL/WP; my first viewing/listening to this group. The vocalist, John Bell does nothing for me. Out of key, no real personality or range, Imho..just awful. Jimmy Herring ?, kind of like Joe Bonamossa meets Jeff Beck. Add, these ears heard a lot of rather mechanical pentatonic scale...played with little emotion. I'd give 'em another listen, but all in all?...more than likely, not my thing.

I could see somebody saying John Bell was out of key, or had a limited range, but if anything I think he has TOO MUCH personality in his singing. I like Panic, but I have always felt that Bell was the very definition of "trying too hard." He really, really wants to be some poor black bluesman from Mississippi, but in reality he's just a rich white guy from Ohio.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jimmy's contract is up soon, but Panic is talking about taking a very long break anyway after the Mexico shows in January, so he could still be there when/if they come back. John Bell was talking in an interview about how they were going to take a break "for a couple years, maybe longer, we'll see" or words to that effect.

Widspread Panic is basically what you have to put up with till Jimmy solos. Thank God he does long and often. Dave Schools is great! Always wanted him in the Mule. Jo Jo and Ortiz aren't bad. Bell and Nance suck to the ninth degree.

I like WSP.

I thought the ACL setlist was rather meh.

I've seen Panic about 10 times now. They are a great band to go and have a few and jam out for three hours. A nice escape. I'm by no means a devotee, but I like them. I LOVE their version of "Ride Me High," JoJo sings that one. I love his voice.
