Title - Everyday

Label - Widespread Records 

2021 Reissue


Widespread Panic's third album offers 14 southern-fried rock songs, some of which have become the band's most-loved show stoppers. It's also the first album to feature John "JoJo" Herman's bluesy key pecking. Each track does feature the band's signature loud guitar and bass, jam-rock style, but after a couple of listens, the tracks distinguish themselves.

From the softly driving "Pilgrims" to the bouncing exuberance of "Wondering," John Bell's emotive vocals and the meaningful lyrics take the listener on a journey through a series of vignettes. "Diner" is sung from the point of view of a bum while he watches the waitress. "She's like natural music anyway she moves," he sings. "Hatfield" is the true story of a Native American who was called upon to perform a rain dance during a drought in Los Angeles. The song begins very softly like raindrops and builds into a lightning storm of guitar and percussive sounds.

The poignant "Papa's Home" is perhaps the best example of how Widespread Panic can begin a song softly and build it into an all-out jam, with the help of percussionist Domingo "Sonny" Ortiz's skin slapping. Everyday is considered by fans to be one of the band's best albums, despite its very limited radio play. The subtlety of the band's style is unaltered on this disc. The slice-of-life story lyrics, the tight musicianship that builds and falls with the songs' emotions, and extended song length are all unhampered by the pressure for a radio-friendly sound.

Have Your Vinyl Record Ultrasonically Cleaned Before Shipment

Have Your Vinyl Record Ultrasonically Cleaned Before Shipment


Ultrasonic Cleaning

Your vinyl record will be cleaned by the Degritter 120kHz ultrasonic cleaning system. It has been carefully designed to make sure that records are cleaned thoroughly and without any damage to the surface of the record.

Ultrasonic cleaning works by creating a large number of microscopical bubbles in the cleaning bath, a phenomena called cavitation. The bubbles are a vacuum created by high frequency pressure waves moving through the water.

Every ultrasonic cycle bubbles are formed and collapsed, releasing energy as heat and minuscule strong water jets. These effects combined thoroughly clean all surfaces down to a microscopic level.

Cost of service is per vinyl record.  For example, Double LP records will require TWO cleaning service purchases. Price will include a new antistatic sleeve.
