Major Impacts 2
Carrying on the theme from the first "Major Impacts", ace guitarist Steve Morse includes another selection of his favorite guitarists and keyboardists. "Major Impacts 2" includes songs in homage of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, The Who, Aerosmith, Emerson Lake & Palmer, The Yardbirds, ZZ Top, Genesis, Spirit, Deep Purple, Ted Nugent, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Dave LaRue (bass) and Van Romain (drums and percussion) are also back in support of this all instrumental guitar fest. An interesting, intellectual approach that sets the studious listener up for an amazing ride, indeed a journey through rock's past that, through Morse's inimitable touch, can be enjoyed by those who indeed know little about the theoretical and practical workings of the guitar. As a result, "Major Impacts 2" is an incredibly dense, value-added collection of rock guitar posturing, Morse superimposing the weight and authority of his own highly emotive approach o'er top the styles of what comprises a canny and selective roll call of rock's most "impactful" pioneers.
