Podcast #11 - Skyline 2005 ::: podcast011.zip (69.4 MB)

DESCRIPTION: For the fifth, and possibly final, time, the Skyline Stage was the setting for Umphrey's McGee in Chicago during the summertime. To start off is the brand new tune, Higgins. Debuted a week before, the song is a continuation of the songwriting direction the band has taken with songs like The Bottom Half and Believe the Lie. The eccentric Frank Zappa bandmate Ray White and local bass legend Greg Rzab hopped on-stage to join the band for a rousing rendition of Zappa's City of Tiny Lites, complete with White "taking a phone call" mid-song.

DESCRIPTION: In celebration of the new DVD Wrapped Around Chicago, due out October 18th, this episode features selections from the New Year's run from last year. Outstanding versions of The Fussy Dutchman and Padgett's profile stand out, while the addition of horns to Mail Package and Wife Soup brings new personality to concert staples. The Band's Opehlia served as one of the debut cover choices that we have come to expect from an Umphrey's McGee New Year's Eve show. (umphreys.com)

Podcast #13 - "Jimmy Stewart" - The Album preview ::: podcast013.zip (74.4 MB)

DESCRIPTION: With the release of the UMLive.net exclusive "Jimmy Stewart" - The Album, Umphrey's McGee is offering fans a unique look into their world of improvisation. This broadcast is an 80 minute collection of improvisations taken from the same time period that the new album was culled from, and is the cutting-room floor disc for the album. The band's unique approach to structured improvisation is evident as they take you through their many influences and styles. From spacious textures to blaring crescendos, each piece is unique.

Podcast #14 - August 2005 ::: podcast014.zip (71.2 MB)

DESCRIPTION: After a summer of one set shows on Big Summer Classic, Umphrey's McGee came back ready to let loose in their typical two set fashion. With more room to work with, and selling out clubs along the east coast, songs like Mulche's Odyssey and Women Wine and Song were receiving extended improvisatory treatments. The opening cut Miss Tinkle's Overture is one of their most blistering to date, and the Black Sabbath covers sandwiched inside Ocean Billy relive some of the (in)famous Halloween 2004 show.

Podcast #15 - September 2005 part 1 ::: podcast015.zip (73.3 MB)

DESCRIPTION: As with most Umphrey's McGee setlists, seeing a song listed in the podcast can only give you an idea of what the playing resulted in. In this broadcast, Dump City and Anchor Drops receive extended improvisational treatments, stretching the boundaries of each. The band explores several different themes and layers in another fantastic rendition of Nothing Too Fancy. To close is the Ween-inspired, tongue-in-cheek Nopener. (umphreys.com)
