Editorial Reviews

Cover 2 Cover is the 2012 CD from Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy and Randy George! Together this group of musicians hand-picked these classic cover songs to complete the second such CD in the band's extensive catalog. This widely diverse selection of songs is sure to capture the essence of the age of music that has impacted these accomplished musicians! Like the first Cover to Cover, most of the song choices on this CD are rooted in the 70's and are songs/bands we grew up with. With nine brand new songs along with five previously recorded ones, Morse, Portnoy and George once again create an album of songs that is sure to be enjoyed for years to come.

Great stuff as with all the music these three put out together. Similar to the first Cover to Cover cd, these are master musicians stretching it out in the studio playing songs they love (generally from the 70s/80s). Music recorded during two Neal Morse cd recording sessions (2008 and 2012) as follows:

2012 Momentum Sessions
1. Lido Shuffle (Boz Scaggs)
2. I Saw the Light (Todd Rundgren)
3. Rikki Don't Lose That Number (Steely Dan)
4. Teacher (Jethro Tull)
5. Driven to Tears (The Police)
6. Come Sail Away (Styx)
7. Southern Man / Needle and the Damage Done / Cinnamon Girl (Neil Young)
2008 Lifeline Sessions
8. Crazy Horses (The Osmonds)
9. Lemons Never Forget (The Bee Gees)
10. The Letter (Joe Cocker version)
11. (What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding (Elvis Costello)
12. Starless (King Crimson)

Love the choices they selected for this cover album.

I think my favorites (besides Starless) are the Neil Young block and Crazy Horses. Just fun to sing along with Mike on that one.

It's like having an over talented cover band at your disposal, if your a fan of any of these 3 guys (which I'm sure you are or you wouldn't be looking at this item ;)) highly recommend this an their first Cover To Cover.

My daughter who is 10 loves them as well.

Hot on the heels on the highly succesful Flying Colors [Limited Edition]here is more good news from the relentlessly creative pair of Neal Morse and Mike Portnoy. Covering 12 of their favorite songs.

And a very interesting collection covering a diverse range of artists: from Bee Gees and The Osmonds to Neil Young and King Crimson. A few classics like "The Letter" and "Rikki Don't Loose That Number", but mostly they have dug up some real gems. "The Teacher" and "Lemons never Forget" are certainly not the first tracks that usually come to mind when talking about Jethro Tull and the Gibb brothers.

Neal Morse sings everything with conviction and - once again - shows what a great multi-instrumentalist he is. Randy George is an inventive and versatile bassist and Mike Portnoy, well, I think it's fair to say he's simply one of the best drummers around. A man who can really PLAY the drums, not just banging around. Using his amazing chops instead of just 'demonstrating' them.

Like all good cover/tribute records they manage to make the songs their own. Putting a new spin of many tracks. But perhaps doing this they tend to make the album slightly monotonous, not really paying tribute to the individual song and it's uniqueness.

None the less this a true gift for all fans of classic rock, prog and the joy of superb musicianship and sheer class!

want to hear some of your favorite tunes with a slightly modern twist---this is it---no weak tracks-the vocals are superb and the playing is heavy without losing the feeling that made me love these tunes originally---------a truly great selection of tunes!!

I've always been a fan of inventive cover songs, and this trio have delivered the goods again. Unlike the other reviewers so far, it wasn't the "BIG" numbers here that got me excited. Sure "Starless," "Come Sail Away," and "Teacher," are great and I was pleasantly surprised with "Lemons Never Forget," but the stars here are the REALLY oddball stuff. First off "Lido Shuffle" - I've always loved the Boz Scaggs original but this, as Mike so aptly proclaims at the end of the track, is a PARTY ! And then there is the REAL Dark Horse ... "Crazy Horses." I have a dim recollection of seeing the Osmonds play this on the Donny & Marie show when I was but a lad, but I don't remember it rockin' THIS HARD ! Kudos to Mike for digging up this gem. And the rest of the disc is just as great. Between Todd Rundgren, Neil Young, Joe Cocker, The Police, & Elvis Costello, there's something too please everyone.

Bottom line, even if you aren't a fan of Neal's music ... if you have fond memories of listening to your transistor radio back in the 70's & early 80's, you WILL find something on this disc to make you smile.

This is significantly better than their first cover to cover album. What I really like about the album is that you can tell these guys are having fun! An homage to songs they enjoy! I did think that they could have woven a little more "prog" into their covers - make it more their own. Honestly, even though I may like most of the originals better, it's a fun disc to spin.

The collaboration of these two music innovators. They do a very nice job on these cover songs. I have ordered more of their music.
