4 stars Just two years after the breakup of The Dixie Dregs, Steve Morse returned with his self named band, including Dregs drummer Rod Morgenstein, and a cameo by keyboardist T Lavitz. On this album, Morse proves the the Dixie Dregs sound was primarily his sound, as this album sounds almost exactly like the Dregs.

The music, as we have come to expect from this guitar master, is a mix of rock, country, jazz fusion, and classical, in that Steve Morse style. The best songs are Cruise Missile, which starts the album on an agressive note (this one would have been a Dregs classic), General Lee, the obligatory Dixie breakdown tune, witha cameo by Albert Lee, and Huron River Blues, a three part proggy piece.

This is a must for Dregs lovers.
