5 stars If you are only going to get one Dixie Dregs album, this is the one I would suggest. It is easily the most prog of all of their albums, and, as usual, it has exceptional compositions and musicianship.

"Odyssey", as far as I'm concerned is the best track the dregs ever recorded. It is prog fusion at it's best, with virtuoso performances on a complex tune by the entire band. And I challenge anyone to listen to this version, and then the "Bring 'Em Back Alive" recording, and still say Dave LaRue is a better bassist than Andy West.

Other prog highlights are the exceptional "Travel Tunes" and "Ice Cakes", both concert favorites, along with "Take It Off The Top". "Little Kids" is a beautiful, classical sounding duet for acoustic guitar and violin.

If you like great fusion, get this album.
