1. It's an OK cover. Better than most.

I am a die hard when it come to Pink Floyd and particularly this album. I have just never heard anyone do what they did, maybe I listened to it so much it jaded me. But it was perfection. One of the best late night headphone after hours jams ever.

2. Split my musical time in the 70's.....

Dead and Pink Floyd. Yes, there was acid involved.

3. lol...

I was same with lots of shrooms and peyote to fill the gaps. It was definitely a spiritual quest.

I think I played my albums so much I wore new grooves in them.

5. Here is the live performance for UM that you posted.

I just wanted to say, I wasn't dissing it at all, just sort of a purist, but these guys are certainly paying a great homage to Pink Floyd.

6. This is why both you guys are my peeps!

I actually just watched that Umphry's vid (Cayuga's live one) for the first time about a month ago ... YT suggestion.

It was pretty good, but should've let the first singer sing the whole thing. His voice was better for that song.

And sure, people can play a lot LIKE Gilmour ... but nobody can do Gilmour as well as Gilmour.

I like their cover of Can't You See from High Sierra Festival a lot too, it's on YT.
