Customer Reviews

The inventors of fusion rock!

Musicians must have this record! (download). I grew up learning my bass chops from Andy West and his trusty alembic. Night of the Living Dregs is a studio and live record from 1979. Forget about Van Halen, and glam rockers This album is full of chops that cannot be learned by 99% percent of professional and amateur rockers (much less created)! . Steve Morse is and was a technical virtuoso who prefers music theory and composition to "posing" for the cameras. If you like RUSH, Genesis, Jeff Beck, Stanly Clarke, Jean Luc Ponty and Kansas you will love this tasty sound. No Pro Tools here, no digital copy and paste, no concern for what the video might look like. Music played by the best musicians I have ever heard! To advanced for the POP listener but a great example of what being a real musician is about. It's sad to think that Steve Morse has never been recognized by the general public. If you like talent and aready to hear the real thing buy this album not available in stores. Get ready to be blown away! These guys invented the term "tight"! Steve Morse also is a Airline Transport Pilot! He should have his face on the wall at MENSA HQ's! Thanks Steve for keeping musicianship number one all of these years. Styx and Journey could have been this great but took the easier, softer way to retirement! I'd like to see P Diddy even listen to this stuff and call himself a musician! Sounds even better on Vinyl! Don't they all? Rappers and wanna be's forget about it.

Night of the Living Dregs

I have not bought this here as I have the original issue album. I've converted it to mp3 though and love it. This is one of the best albums of all time. The music is complex, but easy to follow. My favorites are Punk Sandwich, Country House Shuffle and Leprechaun Promendade. I did look for this album on iTunes before I converted it. It wasn't out. Buy it, you won't regret it.

Essential Dregs

I discovered the Dregs when I heard Punk Sandwich on the radio late at night in 1979. It may be the only time it's ever been on the air. Although I didn't realize it at the time, much of the Dregs' sound is inspired by Steve Morse's classical, not jazz training. Night of the Living Dregs is one-third of the essential Dregs trio of What If, Night of the Living Dregs, and Dregs of the Earth. The Capricorn days were the best for this gang. They may not be virtuosos, but they sure are tight.

One of the top jazz-rock fusion ensembles ever, the Dixie Dregs combined virtuoso technique with eclecticism and a sense of humor and spirit too frequently lacking in similar projects. Guitarist Steve Morse and bassist Andy West played together as high-school students in Augusta, GA, in a conventional rock band called Dixie Grit. When Morse was expelled from school for refusing to cut his hair, he enrolled at the University of Miami School of Music, where he met violinist Allen Sloan, who had played...
