Live At The Montreux Jazz Festival 1978
Out of the musically fertile jazz-rock 'fusion' era of the 1970s emerged the Dixie Dregs. Marrying bluegrass with rock sensibilities, baroque pageantry with celtic undertones, the Dregs soon became a band without peers. By 1978, the band had garnered such critical acclaim as to be invited to perform at the prestigious 11th annual Montreux Jazz Festival, sharing the bill with such luminaries as Larry Coryell, Ben Sidran, and Sea Level. The Dregs turned in a blinding performance of unparalleled magnitude, at once passionate and precise. Here now, for the first time ever, is the complete performance that captivated the Montreux audience on that 23rd day in July, 1978. Rounding out this historic concert are the bands appearances on two of the most influential US musical variety shows: Don Kirshner's Rock Concert (featuring a dazzling performance of 'Punk Sandwich') and Dick Clark's American Bandstand (featuring Alex Ligertwood on 'Crank It Up'). The latter appearance was filmed during a short promotional tour in support of their album "Industry Standard". So sit back, turn the lights down low, volume up high, and relive the spectacular sights and sounds of the Dixie Dregs live and unfettered in your living room!
