For the most part yeah, though I'd say Pompeii is more complimentary to it

Pompeii represents their live show just before Dark Side of the Moon changed everything. so it's basically the culmination of everything that came before, and the peak of their live abilities. Whereas Ummagumma is the band's early days of finding their way after losing Barrett. Pompeii is the better of the two for sure, but they're pretty different performances even if the songs are almost the same. So I'd say fans should hear both.
What I was more referring to is all the live stuff on the box set they put out last year which documents live performances from every year in the bands history from Piper right up to Pompeii.
