We hold these truths to be self evident, that all improvisations are not created equal…
For the first time in Umphrey’s McGee history, the people AND the band have made their collective voices heard to bring you the best of the best of 2016. The wait is over,
Hall of Fame: Class of 2016 is here in all its glory, an immersive collection of LIVE Umphrey’s McGee improvisational heavy rock, as chosen by the fans and augmented by the band. As such, the collaborative track listing contains the most righteous elements of the year 2016, determined by both the governor and governed.
The complete 16 song album clocks in at over 4 hours of music, seamlessly stitched together into one boundless listening experience. Capping off this year’s offering is the first ever “Utopianstein,” a composite of four of best Utopian Fir’s of the year edited together to create a never before heard original 44+ minute track. Utopian indeed!
Call in sick because 16 tracks from 12 different shows in 11 different cities totaling 255 minutes of improvised rawk await. Live, liberty, and the pursuit of awesomeness shall ever reign forth!
