5 stars The first Dixie Dregs released record. The members of this band are all gifted artists that play an intricate music highly influenced by Mahavishnu Orchestra with a touch of Allman Brothers. Guitarist extraordinaire Steve Morse wrote every song. His guitar solos were not as bursting as on his further records within the Steve Morse Band, but with this album he demonstrated that he was a great composer. Steve conceived every Dixie Dregs album as a patchwork of very different kinds of music, ranging from classical to fusion, via country, rock and balad. However, he is not the only astonishing musician on this record, violinist Allen Sloan and drummer Rod Morgenstein are as much as him. Complex compositions and great melodies make for a fantastic debut album. If you like Mahavishnu Orchestra, with a bit more fun and the spirit of Bruford's solo work, check out this record.
