Download Umphrey’s McGee’s Covers Set at Wanee for Free

Umphrey’s McGee has shared a free download from their special All Night Wrong set at Wanee Music Festival in April. That night, the band dipped into a variety of covers including their original mashup “Life During Exodus,” as well as Led Zeppelin’s “Song Remains the Same,” The Who’s “Baba O’Riley” and many more.

The group also welcomed out some special guests like John Popper, who added harmonica to The Rolling Stones “Miss You” and Oteil Burbridge who replaced Ryan Stasik on bass and sat in on “Hey Nineteen” and “When the World is Running Down You Make the Best of What’s Still Around.” Eric Krasno and Adam Deitch came out later in the set for Scofield’s “A Go Go” before Warren Haynes added guitar to “Immigrant Song” and “Black Water.”

I’m not even a huge UM fan but this show was incredible!! The energy in there coulda moved a train! Good job guys!

Awwwwww yeah. Talk about a band taking others songs and advancing them to heights the original artists simply couldn’t. These guys are so much better than all these other bands and man we are starting to sell out more and more venues. Stay off our swag! Pants off!!

This was such a sexy time down in that hot park in Florida. We felt like canned sausages in our RV, but the entire weekend eclipsed into this wonderful transgression by the men. Issac and I play this set constantly and it brings back memories for so many of our friends in the community. Thanks boys!

Wow!! Stay off your club drugs Umphan. Stones,Steely Dan, The Who, Zeppelin, Clash to name some. What a very sad statement. Bet you wish they played some Queen.

Thank you UM!!!

mb August 20, 2014, 22:39:43

wow! better than Zeppelin, the Who, Talking Heads, Bob Marley and the Clash. Throw in the Police and Steely Dan to boot. They definitely jam their asses off. Do they have even one song half as good as any of the songs that they are covering? Just asking…

Music has advanced well beyond the bands they are covering in this set. It’s not a statement of respect, rather one of defiance and superiority. “Look at us destroy your simple catalog with little or no practice.” That’s what our scene and the crew is saying. Songs half as good as these songs? Try all of Mantis!! Jakeboy plays circles around these 70s era guitar players, but so does Brandon and he isn’t even the best in the band. Thanks UM!!! We are the leaders of this scene!

What scence? GLBT scene? Wake up! Everyone has an opinion, butI guess you can kid yourself with yours.

Sounds like Umphan has a man crush. Ain’t that sweet. Circles around those other bands, huh?
Page, Richards, Gibbons, Van Halen, Townsend,. Circles, really? I think not. That group right there could be on a Mt Rushmore of guitarists!
