I’m pretty new to UM, but mostly have only listened to the shows that I’ve gone to and whatever I could find on Youtube. I’ve liked going through the best jams of all time thread and picking some at random, some have been hot, some have been a’ight.
Was wondering if someone could post like a top 5 or top 10 consensus sets by years that are available on Nugs or on Archive (now that I’ve found those). Obviously there’d be some disagreement, but I’m mostly looking for sets with hot jams and that flow really well. I’ve never been a big fan of one awesome jam for 30 minutes and then the last 45 minutes of the set is just songs in random order.
If anyone wants to contribute shows from 2001 through 2020 that are kinda like I described, I’d be eternally grateful.
ALSO If anyone can answer why they stopped playing the song in my user name, I’d also be curious. I came across it on YouTube once and thought it was an amazing song that became one of my favorites, but it looks like they haven’t played it in a very long time and not many times ever. Why is that? Great song, great lyrics. Don’t get it… are there other great songs, they’ve dropped like that?
Anyway, I’d appreciate hearing people’s thoughts. I do a ton of driving for work so having tons of hot sets at the ready would be sick.
Thanks. Looking forward to chatting with y’all in the future.
As for Never Cease, I wouldn’t say they dropped it as much as they never really picked it up. Last time I recall hearing it was acoustic Toad’s ‘09 (great show worth checking out). It was released on the outtakes disc of The Bottom Half so I don’t think it was ever really held in regard as a song that would be played live much from them. Seems more like a Jake solo tune they messed with a few times
I’ve only been listening to UM the last 5 years, but 18 and 19 are the only years I can really speak fluently about all the shows. Here’s my top 10 in order for 2019 and will see if I can report back for 2018:
Agreed. I remember that list too. Certain shows that were listed multiple times were highlighted as favorited shows. I used that a lot when I was really diving in. Looking up old UM shows makes me almost want to listen to UM again.
