5 stars This Dixie Dregs Night of the Living Dregs LP\CD is part Studio, part Live at the Montreaux Jazz Festival. It is without question one of the finest Jazz Rock Fusion albums ever made. It has great instrumental Jazz Rock studio efforts in Punk Sandwich and Country House Shuffle and the Live sets from The Montreaux Jazz Festival which features Leprechaun Promenade, Night of the Living Dregs, and the Jazz Bluegrass classic The Bash which is The Wabash Cannonball played at maximum speed. The classic staying power of this recording is that the Live cuts from this album have also now be re-released on a Dixie Dregs Live at Montreaux DVD Video, 25 years later. Steve Morse has it all on display here, the alternate picking method, chicken picking, phrasing, chromatic chord runs, and his unique chops and feel for the music that elevates Steve Morse's playing from great to legendary. This LP and CD is one of the very best Albums and CD's that I own, and I have hundreds of Albums and CDs from all genres of music. The Dixie Dregs Night of the Living Dregs is a Jazz Rock Fusion Classic in my opinion. And it is still in print on CD! If you enjoy Hard Rock, Jazz, and Bluegrass together check this one out. Stunning ensemble virtuoso musicianship! In my top 10 All-Time favorite Albums.
