The 1977 album Free Fall established Dixie Dregs as an instrumental force to be recokoned with, capable of mixing genres with seamless grace. Now they were ready to get serious about recording, with one-time Beatles engineer Ken Scott at the helm.
Steve Morse says:
"Ken Scott, our producer for this and the next album [Night Of The Living Dregs], had a similar vision sound-wise to what we imagined, and his immaculate style and perfection suited me just fine.
"Scott taught me the basics of making a studio album. The song Take It Off The Top was used as the theme for [Tommy Vance's] Friday Rock Show for 15 years on the BBC in England.
"One UK magazine hated the album when it came out, but years later, the same publication reviewed it as a beloved old gem and wondered why we never made it big in Britain. Go figure."
