Some of the best times in college for me was heading down to New Orleans for the Widespread Panic Halloween shows. The band would put on an epic trio of shows, dropping plenty of cover tunes and having guests sit in. 1998, the first year we went, was adequately described by my friend Megan’s ecstatic words “We touched it!”
I was not at this show I am posting. Thankfully my taper buddy Mike Remmers gave me this show’s when we were in Montana the last time I saw him.
This is a nice audience recording. You can hear the tune “I Walk On Guilded Splinters” over here.
