Greatest Hits Live
"Greatest Hits Live" (previously released as "King Biscuit Flower Hour Presents" in 1997) showcases the Dregs live at Sigma Sound Studio on June 17, 1979, in Philadelphia. The CD captures the Dixie Dregs at the peak of their career, having released their highly regarded studio album, "What If", the previous year. The band delivers an excellent, electrifying performance, with Steve Morse's guitar playing ring-around-the-rosie with Allen Sloan's electric violin, while keyboardist T Lavitz joins them with an array of sounds, from barrelhouse piano to washes of synthesizer. Drummer Rod Morgenstein and bassist Andy West, meanwhile, keep the bottom anchored, providing both solid foundations for the songs and punchy, dead-on accents, always at the right time. "Greatest Hits Live" displays what the Dixie Dregs came to be known for, making instrumental music a little more palatable to the average, non-musician listener.
