    One of my favorite hippie jambands, Umphreys McGee were allowed to record a few hours at Abbey Road studios before their London shows. They did a cover of I want you (she's so heavy) that I think it really good. They have covered the Beatles numerous times, but never in a studio. I know most of you won't care, but some of you might.

    They played it a bit too note for note, very well by the way, but it was pure Umphrey's for the last minute or so

    I know what you mean. I think that they kept it pretty true to form since they were in Abbey Road.

    I like when they do the Beatles. I went nuts when the played this in Aspen a couple years ago. Place was packed, and it was a pain in the Ace to get a ticket, but they were great shows.


    Fun Chigs Fact: Umphreys is the only band outside of Phish who I have seen 100+ times :grad:

    They can jam. I think of them as a band that can jam like the Allmans with the two headed guitar monster of Judas Priest.

    For a guy who plays music, you seem to have a very narrow mind regarding your passion...kind of a bummer.
    Or, are you so anti "jam band" because of the political association that comes along with it?

    Either way, list some of your favorite acts, Im sure we can find common ground.

    I just find "jamming" boring and inane. I don't know about any political association it may have. It only seems to be entertaining to people on hallucinogenics.
