This is my favorite Dixie Dregs album. The band sounds very tight, looking forward to show thier possibilities after years in endless music college and finally recording for a major label.

All the themes roll on in a free spirit mood, It doesn't have that peculiar feeling of great tension and emotional intensity you experience normally on fusion records of such bands from the same period as Return to Forever, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Eleventh House or Weather Report. Not that i don't enjoy it, on the contrary, I dig 70's jazz fusion a lot. But fusion is not for ocasional distracted listening. Maybe the southern rock influence does the difference. However, I believe that this is not their true essence, because when they jam hard like real jazz musicians (and only jazz musicians) can do, that's when I stare at my cd player and say "Now, we're talking!".

The music here is very cool, all the musicians performance is great without extrapolations, specially guitar and bass parts.

So, I guess it's a band for musicians, yes, just like a fusion band has to be, but it's also highly recomended for people who are searching for fine melodies and well structured instrumental tunes. Morse and his fellows show that you can be a virtuose on your instrument, having a great sense of melody and composition and do not sound like a speedfreak machine repeating licks after licks trying to reach the speed of light.

my favorite tunes are free fall, holiday, refried funky chicken.

Steve Morse (Guitar) and the stellar members of the Dixie Dregs, including longtime bandmates Rod Morgenstern (Drums) and T Lavitz (Keys) are simply the most incredible musicians this music addict has ever heard. Steve's genre-transcending compositions are the key, both modest (for the fun parts he shares with his bandmates rather than plays himself) to the most inspired, impressive and technically advanced guitar work by Maestro Morse himself. This music soars like no other I have ever heard. And I am a very hungry and eclectic listener. It is a must for every serious listener who appreciates fast-moving and complex instrumental music. Other faves are "Dregs of the Earth", "Unsung Heroes" and the Steve Morse Band's "Coast to Coast". There is not a single music offering led by Steve Morse that I do not own at least one copy of, and each one was worth far more than what I paid for it given the enjoyment each has provided. This is my favorite music - for over twenty years. Now my eight year old daughter is becoming a fan, and an accomplished musician herself.
Note: The first Dregs album "The Great Spectacular" (more like a demo) has songs re-recorded for Freefall and other albums.

Dixie Dregs are one of my alltime best artists. I agree to the other reviews. Almost any CD of them would get 5 stars. I choose this CD, because its their first (official) one, and already is perfect. Great musicians produce a perfect instrumental blend of a selection of the most accessable and uplifting styles, from classical touch, southern, jazz, rock, pop and much more. If you like mahavishnu orchestra, or anything which might be called fusion and mixes more than one musical style, here you find a mixture which will make you smile. For me, the featured styles are not important, and I don't care if I forgot to mention one, or got them wrong totally. They just play varied uplifting music which is very accessable and capturing. Every member adds incredible skill and taste, and every song adds to the impression this CD has while listening. All put together, this CD is much more than the sum of the songs. If I listen to this CD from start to finish, I just feel, that everything it maximized for pure joy of listening. And it works. If you want to even go further, you can check out their Live CDs where the loss of studio perfection is more than compensated by added fun (!) and power (!!). So don't be afraid, thinking it might be academic jazz training lessons, or your parents dino-music from 1970. Give it a try and see, if you enjoy it that much as I do.

The first *official* recording by the Dregs (there WAS a white album in the mid-70s, but I didn't know how good they were yet!) showcases their awesome instrumental capabilities, masterful fusion of styles and influences, and improvisational skill. It's all here -- the bluegrass, classical, fusion, straight-ahead rock, blues roots -- don't sort it out, just appreciate it! More than anything else, you know that Steve Morse, Andy West, Allen Sloan, Rod Morgenstein, and Steve Davidowski have a great time together making innovative music, and keeping you guessing about what comes next. Personal favorites are Moe Down (high-steppin!), and the powerful Cruise Control (you'd better be strapped in for this one!) The only place The Dregs sound better is live -- and you can't get that anymore. But if you rocked with them at Memorial Hall at the University of Georgia in Athens, or at the Georgia Theatre, then this brings it all back. I'm trading in my 1977 vinyl for this CD (I no longer own a turntable!)!

I used to go to the Georgia Theater in Athens, Georgia in the late seventies/early eighties to watch the Dregs. They were the best. Their style was their own, beyond description. When I listen to this album, I am transported to my days of humid summer evenings in the deep south, dancing in the shadow of oak trees.
