Seventeen albums into their career, pioneering jam band Widespread Panic change things up just slightly on FREE SOMEHOW. The band's first album featuring songs written largely in the studio and not worked out during their legendary marathon tours, FREE SOMEHOW consciously evokes the sound of 1970s hard rock. Produced by Terry Manning, whose credits run from Memphis power pop kings Big Star all the way to Led Zeppelin, and featuring new guitarist Jimmy Herring, who had previously worked with members of the various Grateful Dead offshoots, FREE SOMEHOW is Widespread Panic's most roots-conscious recording. Still, songs like the epic workouts "Her Dance Needs No Body" and "Angels On High" retain the band's loose, exploratory charm.
