Just received this from Roy A. of Nektar:
 
"Busy is not the word!
We have been at it non-stop to enable a release of a very special unique product adding broad diversity to the Nektar catalogue. It has been in the pipeline for a while now but I didn't want to say anything until I had confirmation from the numerous participants.

Nektar is proud to begin working with some of the biggest names in the music industry!

You see, in association with Cleopatra Records (great guys by the way!!), we are about to release a grand Covers Album - yes you read it correctly - an album of 15 classic rock tracks you will know well including tracks such as "Blinded by the Light" & "Riders on the Storm ".

But the best part is that NEKTAR is hosting a GUEST LIST to boast about.

To mention just a few; Jerry Goodman, Rick Wakeman, Steve Howe and plenty more.

You will need to go to www.nektarsmusic.com to see the entire contents.

I know you are going to love this album, so check it out.

Due to all this work, I have had to reschedule the release of Juggernaut - but patience please!
It IS on it's way I assure you.

Peace & Love to you & yours

RA
On behalf of NEKTAR"

I love Nektar and I am always interested in hearing old tunes redone by decent musicians. But sometimes  it also puts a damper on my enthusiasm for the facilitating artists when they do cover tracks. Especially when its an entire Lp worth.
it is an interesting line up though.
