Widespread Panic released video of “Contentment Blues” from Oak Mountain in 2011. The band performed the classic during their April 16 concert at the Pelham, Alabama venue.

Panic has released a trove of videos early this year beginning with their 25th anniversary run in 2011. WSP now shares clips at Oak Mountian from shortly after the quarter century celebration as well as their 2016 Red Rocks run and more.


“Contentment Blues” is one of Panic’s oldest tunes, debuted in early 1987 as per Everyday Companion. The song has remained a steady staple since save for an absence in 2003. Panic also included the song on their 1992 debut album, Space Wrangler.

The clip of “Contentment Blues” follows Panic’s previous Oak Mountain release of “Protein Drink” / “Sewing Machine” which closed out the first set. “Contentment Blues” came as the third song in a four song opening segment bookended by “Chilly Water” and also containing “Impossible” and “B of D.”
