This came out in 2003 – or at least that’s when I got it. Here’s what I said about it back then (with some minor editing):
There’s a fine line between going the extra mile and not knowing when to quit — and Southern-rock jammers Widespread Panic come perilously close to crossing it on their latest concert DVD Live From the Backyard in Austin, Tex.
On the one hand, you get their entire, 157-minute show taped before a worshipful, party-hearty Texas crowd last year. On the other hand, that means you also get the ridiculously long, eye-rollingly pointless drum solo and percussion jam. Then there’s the entire second disc, which has endless interviews with everyone associated with the band, right down to the roadies. Apparently, the only ones who didn’t have a say in this were the editors.
