Widespread Panic to Release Double Live Album and Box Set
Widespread Panic have announced the release of a new double live album, titled Wood, featuring selections from the band’s first-ever fully acoustic 2012 Wood Tour. The tour took place in January and February of this year, with an 11-date, four-city acoustic tour ran through the Washington, DC area, Atlanta, GA, Denver, CO and closed out with a three-night run at the Belly-Up Tavern in Aspen, CO. These were Widespread Panic’s final dates before going on hiatus for the remainder of the year.
The set features acoustic versions, and some new arrangements of Panic originals, including “Tall Boy”, “Ain’t Life Grand” and “Climb To Safety,” a guest appearance by Col. Bruce Hampton on “Fixin’ to Die,” as well as covers including Jimmy Cliff’s “Many Rivers To Cross” and Sonny Boy Williamson’s “Good Morning Little Schoolgirl.” Wood also features first time renditions of John Lennon’s “The Ballad of John and Yoko” and former Animal Alan Price’s “Sell Sell” from the legendary British film O’ Lucky Man.
Widespread Panic will simultaneously release Wood as a special limited edition 3 LP box set featuring 180 gram vinyl, a 12 page photo booklet with liner notes written by Widespread Panic lead singer John Bell and an exclusive limited edition color letterpress poster made at the legendary Hatch Show Print woodblock letterpress shop in Nashville, TN.
See below for the full track listing. Wood comes out on October 16.
