Pop Used - LP CPN 0216 Capricorn
1979 Original With Custom Song Hype Sticker On The Cover And Cream Colored Capricorn Inner Sleeve. Gold Promo Stamp On Back Cover. Appears Glossy, Unplayed. In The 1970s, When Fiery-Fingered Exercises In Jazz-Rock Fusion Were All The Rage In Both The United States And The U.K., The Dixie Dregs Brought A Southern Slant To The Style, Injecting A Touch Of Twang Into The Proceedings. NIGHT OF THE LIVING DREGS (1979) Catches The Band At A Key Transitional Point. While Essentially A Studio Album, Some Tracks Are From A 1978 Concert Featuring New Keyboard Player T. Lavitz, Whose Synthesizer Work Would Become An Important Part Of The Band's Sound. Throughout The Album, Steve Morse's Fiery Guitar, Allen Sloan's Jean-Luc-Ponty-On-Wild-Turkey Violin, And Andy West's Frenetic, Popping Bass All Play Demolition Derby Amid Metrically And Harmonically Sophisticated Compositions That Still Offer Plenty Of Visceral Satisfaction.... more details

Dixie Dregs - Industry Standard Industry Standard
Pop New - LP 25RS-169 Arista
1982 Japanese Original With Obi. Appears New, Unplayed. “Although They Dropped The "Dixie" From Their Name In 1981, Industry Standard Is Still Basically What One Would Expect From The Dixie Dregs. It Also Proved To Be The Band's Last Album Before They Disbanded, With Fans Having To Wait Ten Years For A Reunion And A New Record. This Incarnation Of The Band Is Actually The Strongest One Musician-Wise, With Master Fiddler Mark O'Connor (In His Lone Appearance As A Dreg) Making Strong Solo And Ensemble Statements. O'Connor Really Gets To Show Off His Stuff On The Requisite Country-Tinged Instrumental, In This Case The Amusingly Titled "Where's Dixie?" By This Point, Steve Morse's Compositional Acumen Had Reached The Level Of Complexity And Polyphony That He Would Mine In His Solo Work Throughout The '80s And '90s, And The Sound Of The Band Is More Streamlined Than Ever Before. Gone From Industry Standard Are Many Of The Mahavishnu-Isms That Were So Present In The Band's Work From The 1970s. One Peculiar Feature Of This Record Is The Presence Of Two Vocalists, Ex-Santana Member Alex Ligertwood, And Doobie Brother Patrick Simmons, On One Track Each. This Marks The First And Only Time The Dregs Incorporated Singing Into Their Music. There Are Some Fine Moments In The Steely Dan-Inspired "Ridin' High." The Excellent "Chips Ahoy" Is Perhaps The Strongest Track On Industry Standard, With A Lilting, Haunting Melody Played, Paradoxically, At Breakneck Speed By Morse And O'Connor. Also Of Note Is The Driving "Assembly Line" And A Lovely Acoustic Guitar Duet, "Up In The Air," Between Morse And Yes' Steve Howe. Morse, As Per Standard Operating Procedure, Demonstrates His Versatility, Range, And Chops Throughout The Album. The Interplay Between The Guitarist And Drummer Rod Morgenstein Is Particularly Stunning, As In Morse's Cathartic Solo In "Conversation Piece. It Will Undoubtedly Provide Hours Of Listening Enjoyment.” Daniel Gioffre, AMG.... more details
