5 stars This is a rare and much sought after dis from "Improg" giants Umphrey's McGee. While Kris Myers and Jake Cinninger are not part of this outfit (people who are familiar with this band or the "jam scene" know just how talented those players are), this live recording represents a burgeoning band that today (Late January 2015) is one of if the not the MOST tight and talented touring outfits on the plantet. If that statement seems like hyperbole, I encourage you to listen to almost any UM show (they can be found in countless places on the internet/YouTube/archive.org for free) and disagree. UM is as proggy as any band I can think of and are true masters of improvisation. In any case, this album represents their humble beginnings but also demonstrates the talent, humor and depth of musicality that made this band what it is today... Certainly "for collectors" as it is hard to track down but a "5" nonetheless because of what this album means to music history (read the first live release from one for the greatest live touring acts to take the stage, 2000+ shows and counting...)
