Today, Umphrey’s McGee continues a tradition by collecting highlights from the previous year for a Hall Of Fame compilation. Just as with past HOF releases, Hall Of Fame: Class Of 2015 is designed to replicate a typical setlist with a first set, second set and encore. The selections span the entire year and a number of tracks feature special guests.

While Hall Of Fame: Class Of 2015 focuses on originals, there are a handful of covers including “Shine On You Crazy Diamond,” (Pink Floyd) “Root Beer Rag” (Billy Joel) and “Hey, Hey, What Can I Do” (Led Zeppelin). All selections were voted on by fans and then assembled into show-form by Team Umphrey’s. The compilation contains selections from 13 differetn shows and there’s plenty of improv within. Hall Of Fame: Class Of 2015 is available on vinyl, CD and as digital downloads. The compilation is also available for your streaming pleasure on Spotify:
