3 stars This album was produced by former YES`producer Eddie Offord and recorded in late 1981. This is mainly a Jazz-Rock album with good music and good musicians, particularly guitarist Steve Morse and keyboard player T Lavitz. But one thing that I didn`t like from this band was their name:"The Dregs? What a name for a band!". But maybe calling themselves "The Dixie Dregs" was a bit better, but not enough for being a good name for a band.

"Assembly Line" is the best song from this album, with good synchronization betwen the musicians, but the rest of the songs are good too. "Up in the Air" is an acoustic guitar duet played by Steve Morse and Steve Howe, and composed by Steve Morse. Maybe Eddie Offord`s connection with YES was the main reason to include this duet in this album, which is very good, but it seems that both guitarists recorded their parts separately in different studios. But the guitar duet sounds like they played it together.
