Widespread Panic Space Wrangler on 2LP

For the first time ever, Widespread Panic’s first four albums from the band's classic line-up will be available on vinyl. The album that started it all, Space Wrangler (1998) and self-titled follow-up Widespread Panic (1991) will drop in July, while third release Everyday (1993) and fourth full-length Ain’t Life Grand (1994) will hit the streets in August. 

Early on Widespread Panic began to forge a sound unto themselves, a combination of Michael Houser’s unorthodox guitar playing, John Bell’s coarse growl, Todd Nance’s rock-steady drumming, David Schools’ lead bass playing and Sunny Ortiz’s multi-textured percussion, coupled with a collective commitment to playing original songs from the outset and a willingness to walk the improvisational high wire night after night. 

Landslide Records came calling and Space Wrangler, the group’s promising John Keane-produced debut, was issued in September 1988, the first copies of which were hand-delivered to the band by Col. Bruce Hampton, an area shaman, bandleader and early mentor. Looking at touchstones like the Grateful Dead and Mark Knopfler through much more of a Southern rock lens, Space Wrangler is home to such long standing concert staples as J.J. Cale's "Travelin' Light," "Space Wrangler," "Coconut," "Porch Song," and "Driving Song." 

This new 2LP-set also includes the three essential numbers "Holden Oversoul," "Contentment Blues" and "Me And The Devil Blues/Heaven" which were added on future reissues but didn't appear on the original release.
