Widespread Panic's first album, originally released on a tiny Atlanta, GA label. This reissue boasts three new tracks, one of them a lengthy medley; more to the point, 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
