Live in the Classic City II

by: Widespread Panic

Album Artwork

(Widespread Records)

This latest release counts as volume two of Widespread Panic's homecoming April 2000 Classic Center Theatre shows in the band's hometown of Athens, Georgia. Special guests on this collection include R.E.M.'s Mike Mills, Alvin Scott, John Keane, Anne Richmond Boston, Daniel Hutchens and Eric Carter.

Disc one begins with Panic's muscular version of J.J. Cale's "Traveling Light". Dave Schools' thick bass lines commence "Machine". The late Michael Houser's guitar work on these shows really shines through on this release. "Barstools & Dreamers", featuring Alvin Scott, proves to be a formidable piece of music clocking in at over 11-minutes on this version.

John Keane lends his indelible expertise on "This Part of Town" and "Sleeping Man". One cannot quibble with the flawless quality of this recording. Sunny Ortiz's percussive storm introduces a tight and driving rendition of "Radio Child". The menacing "Imitation Leather Shoes" closes disc one, and it seems the band is just getting warmed up.

John Hermann's free-flowing piano cascades on "Disco" opens disc two. "Rebirtha" serves as a fine showcase of Panic's ability to swing, but with a rythmic foundation of drummer Todd Nance and bassist Dave Schools they make it sound easy. "Greta" energizes the crowd, just as the next song--"E on a G"--offers a mellow musical mood. Anne Boston Richmond sounds great singing on the laid back "You'll Be Fine".

"Big Wooly Mammoth" sounds like reckless rock & roll propelled by Hermann's musical direction. "Fishwater" travels to rare environs where the water is black, and the music breathes funky New Orleans humidity. Live in the Classic City II ends with two Bloodkin tunes--"Success Yourself" and "End of The Show". These two numbers really render this release a relic. To hear Michael Houser and Eric Carter playing guitars like a right and left hand just amazes and counts as one of the best versions I've ever heard Panic play. Daniel Hutchens sings the first verse and John Bell's soulful delivery of this dark song on the second verse coincides with Houser and Carter's guitars into incandescent electricity.

John Keane, Alvin Scott and Mike Mills join Hutchens & Carter on "End of The Show", and an Athens wall of sound descends like one glorious farewell to the evening...or the past. Widespread Panic never fails to deliver timeless soul, and Live in the Classic City II stands as emotive proof.

This full-cube ice machine is perfect for use in public-access environments. It creates 340 pounds of ice each day, and might be paired with an ice bin, or hotel dispenser, depending in your wants. Other excellent functions contain: a low-profile design, hinged door, patented cleaning ice machine price technologies,"food zone"cabinet with rounded corners, and 5-year parts and labor coverage on evaporator. This machine is water-cooled, which does enhance water usage, so you might need to do a cost-analysis to choose if this ice machine installation is correct for you personally, (Manitowoc presents an air-cooled version of this machine which utilizes much less water).

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.

The latest ugg boots clearance edition of the UN Food and Agricultural Organization's Food Outlook report warns that 2011 may be a difficult year for food in the world's poorest and most food-deprived nations ugg boots outlet, with national food import bills climbing 11-20%. In total, food imports, will likely rise to levels not seen since food prices peaked in 2008, and riots ensued in some places ugg boots clearance. Currently, food price inflation in some nations runs at 15% a year, with prices of sugar, butter, and cassava and 30-year highs. Wheat and maize prices have increased up to 40% in the past few months ugg boots clearance. As for the causes behind this, price speculation, fluctuations in currency markets, and extreme weather conditions leading to "unexpected supply shortfalls" (as the FAO puts it, that's crop failure in everyday speech...) are to blame ugg boots clearance. Though in June projections showed that world cereal production would grow by 2%, now we're facing a 1.2% decline. Add to that a 7% decline in cereal stocks (wheat down 10%, barley down 35%, and maize down 12%; balanced by a 6% increase in rice), taking away from global food reserves of 74 days ugg boots clearance. Where are the most food deprived nations, the one's with the greatest food security risk uggs clearance?
