3 stars 3.5 stars. I do prefer the "What If" and "Free Fall " studio releases to this live record.This would be a good place to start though if you'd like to check out the DIXIE DREGS sound. I would describe the music here as Southern fried Fusion. There is an American almost country feel at times to some of these songs.

Things get started with "Free Fall" and certainly the violin play of Allen Sloan plays a prominant role in this mid paced song. Nice solo from Morse 3 minutes in. "Country House Shuffle" features some good drumming from Morgenstein. Good uptempo song. "Moe Down" has a definite country flavour to it. Some good guitar picking, as well as violin and piano. "Ice Cakes" has lots of great drums, percussion and guitar. "Travel Tunes" is an excellent song, Morse is amazing. Some mood shifts in this one.

"Night Of The Living Dregs" features a lot of violin melodies. "Night Meets Light" is different from the rest. Synth guitar helps create an atmospheric beauty. "Punk Sandwich" starts heavy but quickly becomes light like the other songs. Some nice solos from Morse. "The Bash" has some real country picking going on and Morse and Sloan trade solos later. "Cruise Control" is a catchy, energetic song that the crowd loves. More guitar and violin solos."Take It Off The Top" is my favourite song here and no doubt a fan favourite. Some good bass lines from West on this one.

Although this band no longer exists this certainly helps to bring back some of the magic that was the DIXIE DREGS.
