Hall of Fame: Class of 2011 Details and Limited Test Pressing Auction
This year we are pleased to present one-of-a-kind Hall of Fame options for you ravenous collectors of all things UM. Each band member has customized, numbered, and signed 15 vinyl test pressings in their own unique style. From hand drawn art to original photographic designs, these rarities run the artistic gamut. To cap off this deluxe offering, the LP tests have been pressed on red vinyl in honor of the top Hall of Fame track, Red Tape. Each custom jacket also comes with a double LP, split color HOF pressing, and MP3 download.
These works of art will be auctioned off over the course of the next 11 days, with our blog being command central. Starting tomorrow, one cover from each band member will be auctioned off every 24 hours for a total of six auctions per day. We will also be auctioning off four ‘six-packs’ containing one LP from each band member, as we know some of you just can’t survive without a complete set.
In addition, the single highest bid for each band member’s art will be donated to the charity of the bidder’s choosing. For example, if the highest winning bid for all of Jake’s covers is $1,464,812, we’ll give $1,464,812 to charity.

Of the people, by the people, for the people . . .
The Hall of Fame series has rapidly become a fan favorite and this year’s “Class of 2011” is back with a vengeance. Once again, we asked you to weigh in on your favorite live moments of the year and we offer your top vote getters, neatly packaged in a two-set show format.
This year’s offering encapsulates the essence of live UM: raw, energetic and inspired. Heavy on improvisation and stylistically diverse, it is what you’ve come to expect from Umphrey’s McGee. Bucking the trend, these two-track recordings have gone back in time for an old fashioned analog remastering, caressed for a sonic warmth befitting your ears.
In addition to a multitude of digital formats from MP3 to 24bit FLAC, we are proud to offer our first ever limited edition, split color vinyl. The double LP package contains the best of best of HOF 2011 as well as the unreleased gem "Santa Oddity" from Acoustic Christmas 2011 (MP3 downloads of the entire album are included with vinyl purchase).
This year we also have a new, one of a kind deluxe option for you ravenous collectors of all things UM. Each band member has customized, numbered and signed 15 vinyl test pressings in their own unique style. From hand drawn art to original photographic designs, these rarities run the artistic gamut. To cap off this deluxe offering, the LP tests has been pressed on red vinyl in honor of the top Hall of Fame vote getter for 2011 (Red Tape). We'll be auctioning off each of these rarities over the course of the next two weeks, with the highest winning bid for each of the six band members going to the charity of the winner's choosing. Stay tuned for full auction details coming later today.
Album drops August 21st. Fans can purchase downloads from umlive.net, iTunes, Amazon, and more. Vinyl can be purchased directly from our store, and bid on test pressings directly from our blog beginning tomorrow! On-demand CDs will also be available via umlive.net.
