    Yes indeed, this is a pretty stupid thread. But I've elected to buy the album Ummagumma (yes, kill me, since I picked it over the commercial stuff, Dark Side Of The Moon, and Wish You Were Here, and the stuff that people would call far better experimental stuff...like Meddle and Atom Heart Mother). So, don't ask why I have decided to get Ummagumma over other albums that must be a million times better (maybe you guys know?), but I was wondering how you guys pronounce Ummagumma anyways?

    Is it:

    yu-mag-yu-ma
    oo-ma-goo-ma
    uh-ma-guh-ma

    Or a combination of the aforementioned?

    As to why you picked uh-ma-guh-mah...I have no idea...maybe you enjoy vomiting.

    Tower Of Faith Do you feel like we do?

    It is indeed uh-ma-guh-ma. However, this is the pronunciation, not the pronOunciation.

    I was always told it was oo-ma-goo-ma. And I think I have evidence that the Floyd pronounced it this way more than any other.

    I too was always told it was oo-ma-goo-ma. But really, what is the difference between oo-ma-goo-ma and uh-ma-guh-ma?
