4.0 out of 5 stars very original with righteous La Villa cover May 9, 2007
Format:Audio CD
If for no other reason, buy this strictly for the La Villa Strangiato cover. It is obvious to me that Steve uses this song as a warm-up; for he effortlessly shreds this composition from top to bottom in a truly unique and fresh way. I never thought it possible to improve on this song; but somehow Steve's guitar aggressively explores a new dimension - all in the spirit of the Rush original.

Aside from this cover, almost all other songs layer creative and fresh musical compositions that both sound good and demonstrate Steve's amazing musicianship.

Other talented guitarists aim to prove their worthiness by cramming a bazillion sixty-fourth notes into each passing measure. Steve knows better.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's Steve. What else can I say? July 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
While not the best way to get started on your collection of Steve Morse's music, for those of us who have everything else, it is a way to hear a cut or two you may not have.

I didn't have the RUSH tribute cut in my collection, for example.

Any Steve Morse cut is worth having.

By the way, I just got to see Deep Purple again and that may be another way to add to your collection of Steve's music. All of their material from the last 10 years is heavily laced with Steve's influence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prime time! November 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I just bought "Prime Cuts" and "Rapture of the Deep" by Deep Purple (featuring Morse on guitar). Both albums are enjoyable in different ways. "Prime Cuts" shows off Steve's guitar work on this instrumental disc. "Rapture of the Deep" shows Steve blending in with the other musicians of Deep Purple. A powerful rock album.

"Prime Cuts" = 4 1/2 stars

"Rapture of the Deep" = 5 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice package, no mere compilation... June 18, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Any product containing Steve Morse music earns five stars for that fact alone. Add some video, and you've got a great deal. I should mention that all nine of the songs offered here are available on separate releases, each containing stellar music by Steve and other artists.

My list of sources: "Prognosis" and "Led On" can be found on Major Impacts (2000); "Air On A 6 String" and "Wooden Music" can be found on Major Impacts 2 (2004); "Heightened Awareness" and "Busybodies" can be found on Split Decision (2002). These are all Steve Morse or Steve Morse Band projects and are must-have CDs for the serious Morse-ophile!

"Quantum Soup" is available on the Jordan Rudess CD entitled Feeding the Wheel (2001). I have not heard the CD (outside of that tune) but will be ordering it soon. "La Villa Strangiato" is from a '96 Rush tribute CD entitled Working Man. "The Clap" is from a '95 Yes tribute CD entitled Tales from Yesterday, which also features Steve's rendition of "Mood for a Day". Neither CD is a standout, but worth a couple bucks used.
