Umphrey's McGee - The London Sessions: A Day at Abbey Road Studios LP
Fresh off the heels of Similar Skin, Umphrey's McGee dove head first into the famed Abbey Road Studios, tracking a staggering 10 songs in one day. The explosive result of the marathon recording session is contained in the ridges of this 180-gram double LP vinyl. A measured mix of arrangements familiar and new, you'll find ferociously tight tracks alongside ear-worm acoustic numbers, infused by the ghosts of a studio frozen in time. Inside the vinyl gatefold, explore dozens of candid photos from the recording session highlighting the storied Studio 2. The back cover contains a long-form narrative detailing everything you didn't know you wanted to know, from soup to nuts: the song selection process, the "why" behind new arrangements, geeking out over classic recording gear, anecdotes from the marathon day, and the meaning of that badass album art. And of course, there's the tasty, tasty vinyl. Each double LP vinyl also contains an mp3 download card in the package, and comes with a commemorative 45" adapter. Quite frankly, we're excited for you.
