Synopsis

Amazon.com
A necessarily subjective best-of collection (the Dregs had no bona fide hits), Divided features material from the Georgia hard-fusion band's debut Free For All, and the LPs What If and Night of the Living Dregs. The choices are apt. Concert favorites such as the uptempo, Jeff Beck-ish "Cruise Control" and a newly recorded version of What If's "Take It Off the Top" are shoo-ins. And it's hard to argue with the barnyard fusion hoe-down "Pride O' the Farm," where guitarist Steve Morse pits his Nashville chicken-pickin' chops against violinist Allen Sloan's equally wicked fiddle forays. This fine collection is marred by lousy presentation. There are no liner notes, the cover art is extremely cheap looking, and a somewhat thin digital remastering does little justice to bassist Andy West's superb low-end maneuvering. --James Rotondi

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Everything on this cd is just so ahead of its time. It reminds me of the mid era eagles but with the extra 'progginess'. Steve Morse's playing is nothing short of superb, The violin playing may very well be the highlight of the cd, it fits so perfectly. Very good cd."
