4 stars The (Dixie) Dregs Unsung Heroes is one of the best of The Dregs early LPs. The sound production is very good and clean, and features several songs that are Classics such as I'll Just Pick and Cruise Control, with also Kat Food, Atilla the Hun, and Rock and Roll Park as solid Jazz Rock fusion efforts.

I'll Just Pick is one of the best examples of Jazz Bluegrass ever recorded.

In fact the Bluegrass cuts, usually one on every album by The Dixie Dregs, Dregs, and the Steve Morse Band are some of the highlights of all of Steve Morse's songwriting and playing efforts. Put all these bluegrass cuts together and you have a very impressive portfolio of Jazz Bluegrass that Morse plays as well as anyone ever has. I especially enjoyed his collaborations with Mark O'Connor.

This album needs to be re-issued on CD in the United States as one of the best examples of Jazz Rock Fusion of the 1980's. It sounds as original today as when it was recorded, a true testament to its classic playing power by true virtuoso musicians.

Steve Morse is simply one of the greatest guitarists of All-Time.

Listen to The Dregs Unsung Heroes. This one is a keeper.

4.5 Stars
