Rolling Stone 2015 Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Jam Bands: Widespread Panic Rated 6th!
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.
Space Wrangler is the first studio album by the Athens, GA band, Widespread
Panic. It was first released by a small Atlanta label, Landslide Records, on
February 4, 1988 and subsequently reissued by Capricorn Records/Warner Bros.
Records and Zomba Music Group. While the CD has been released several times, the
album was only released initially on vinyl and in an extremely limited quantity
"...It's a remarkably confident album that belies its tiny budget. The band
hit the ground running, tip their hat to and blow a raspberry at Mark Knopfler,
and generally show everyone a good time." -Steven McDonald, allmusic.com
