    apparently there were only a couple of folks recording. i only saw 2 rigs. i asked around on the bort. they said the shows would surface soon. whenever that is. i think we just got spoiled to getting shows so fast. last years skyline shows were up within 48 hours, if i remember correctly. i enjoy the site. keep up the good work.

    Patrick: thanks for the nice words on the site. I really, really want these shows and I guess I find it hard to believe that UM fans in Chicago didn’t bring their rigs. I really wonder why…

    Keep us posted if you find these anywhere, because I really don’t want to have to buy these off Disclogic.

    Total Broadcast Length 74:44
    Notes:
    * first time played (Frank Zappa); with Ray White on
    vocals, guitar and Greg Rzab on bass
    ^ with lyrics

    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 ex-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.
