Widespread Records
By James Calemine

The Athens, Georgia, band Widespread Panic’s last 22 years proved a formidable career. Panic travel like road warriors. The always appear on top 50 live groups earnings, and they’ve sold over 3 million albums by ignoring mainstream trends.

In 2002, Widespread’s founding guitarist Michael Houser died of cancer, and the band entered into a transitional period. In late 2006, Georgia guitarist Jimmy Herring joined the band. Free Somehow showcases Herring’s inimitable six-string talents and collaborating. His playing serves as a vital element to this music.

Terry Manning (Led Zeppelin, Al Green, ZZ Top) produced Free Somehow in the Bahamas. Manning produced Panic’s 2006 Earth To America album in the Bahamas also at Compass Point Studio. Free Somehow opens with the rollicking “Boom Boom Boom” which finds Herring’s guitar at the forefront of the group’s fresh sound.

The song “Walk On The Flood” was released early with all the proceeds going to the project Make It Right, dedicated to rebuilding the Lower 9th Ward in New Orleans that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. This social song is propelled by Herring’s edgy sound with the uncharacteristic direct lyrics:

               “We elected our leaders 
                So we’ve been told
                Got no right to complain
                We’ve bought what they sold
                The slogan of the day
                Put peace on hold
                Lennon would have us laughing
                If we’d just let him grow old.”

“Angels On High” gives the band a refreshing sound…a R & B flavored tune. This song allows the point to be made that Widespread’s rhythm section--bassist Dave Schools, drummer Todd Nance and percussionist Domingo Ortiz—remains highly under-rated. The Compass Point Horns on “Angels” evoke a time traveling sound the old STAX-brass mastered.

“Three Candles” musically returns to the Panic of old…yet, somehow, Herring’s style reminds that this is the band in 2008. This CD confirms Panic still remains a force in the year we all live. On “Tickle The Truth”, another direct lyrical narrative, sounds appropriate with John Bell’s ragged-but-right-barrelhouse voice when he gives a nod to rock and roll’s greatest poet in the line: “Because I’m ripping off Dylan...”

The title track--"Free Somehow"--proves one of Widespread’s greatest songs. The laid back tune contains fiddle(s), John Hermann’s piano, and the strong rhythm section that navigates this number. “Flicker” makes one wonder if this isn’t Panic’s most rocking ditty. It will be interesting to hear these songs live.

Herring’s almost jazzy sound--floating above Schools and Nance’s Johnny Sandlin and Muscle Shoals rhythmic instinct--augmented by Manning’s orchestrated horn section confirms Widespread constructed a sun-washed wall of sound on this one… spilling into the next song, “Her Dance Needs No Body”.

“Already Fried”, conjuring a potent R & B-funk mojo, tells a lazy tale of ruin—another classic song, style, and sound from the group. The closer, complete with brass-laced, gospel backup singers “All Night Long”, pays homage to their home state of Georgia: “Can’t Sleep/I’ve been up all night/Laughing in Savannah/At the Bay Street Moon/Wet smell of sulfer/From the cobblestones/Been up all night.”

Free Somehow ranks as one of Widespread Panic’s best albums. It’s a golden beginning to a new era of the band…

A ugg boots clearance recent survey found that one out of five Americans teenage or older want an iPad. No wonder Apple is selling three million iPads a month. It's the fastest-selling single product in the history of consumer electronics. Most buyers are choosing an iPad as a supplement to their current computers -- for watching movies in bed, like I do, or reading books in my easy chair when there's nothing good on TV ugg boots clearance. The iPad pretty much has the personal side of computing covered. But what about the computer side? What about the tasks you do on your laptop or on your desktop computer ugg boots clearance? But I'm convinced that many of you would find the iPad a delightful replacement for a typical laptop computer, whether a Windows PC or Mac, if you mostly use a laptop for three typical functions -- e-mail, social networking (through Facebook, for example) and Web browsing ugg boots clearance. What about occasional word processing? Apple's word processor, called Pages, is outstanding on the iPad. (A bonus: It also works easily with Microsoft Word documents, both reading them and saving them.) If you need software that can show and create PowerPoint presentations, iPad software called Keynote can do that nicely. There's even an Excel-compatible program called Numbers ugg boots clearance. All three of these productivity programs -- called apps -- sell for only $10 each. Getting something equivalent to Microsoft Office for only $30 is surely a steal ugg boots clearance. There are many, either free or a couple of dollars, at the App Store ugg boots outlet. Could an iPad be your only computer? Not for long. It gets updates via free software called iTunes running on a standard computer. When you plug the iPad into the computer using a USB cable, iTunes transfers the updates to your iPad ugg boots outlet. (iTunes is also used to add music, books, podcasts, university lectures, TV shows and movies to an iPad.) But if my experience is a guide, the iPad can function well as a replacement for a laptop. If you buy one, be sure to get the Keyboard Dock and the Camera Connection Kit. Photos look spectacular on the 10-inch screen ugg boots clearance.
