Steve Morse Band
"The Introduction" was Steve Morse' landmark first album under his own name after the Dregs decided to go their separate ways in the early 1980s. "The Introduction" was just what Morse wanted -- showing the extreme talents of the trio (Rod Morgenstein on drums, Jerry Peck on bass), moving between the Dregs' sound and their slightly more guitaristic sound. "General Lee" features a guest guitar spot from super session ace Albert Lee and T Lavits from the Dregs pitches in with some piano on "Mountain Waltz". "The Introduction" won the Guitar Player Readers Poll award for best instrumental album of 1984.
