3.0 out of 5 stars You almost feel it is YOUR fault ! June 21 2004
The coments about the need for high quality equipment is, I am afraid, total rubbish ... the sound on this DVD IS very poor.
I would LOVE to blame my equipment, my copy of the DVD ... anything but have to try to explain why Steve Morse, or those about him, put out such a poor product.
As others have said, the "semi unplugged" section is 'night and day' compared to the Dregs. For the first two numbers of that concert, I can hardly hear Steve at all, and for the rest of the concert, Jerry scratching away dominates everything. Alan ( no relation ) must have had a case on in ER, but I really wish he hadn't !
I have meddled with my set-up in every way possible, because it CAN'T be Steve putting out a poor product ... it just CAN'T !!
I have come to the conclusion, with a sad heart, that it is ... I have never seen him ( Not a great "Purple" fan ) and boy was I looking forward to this release, so it is even more painful because of that. The best bit is the interview with Steve ... if you need ANY reassurance of what a great bloke he is, that section was all it took.

5.0 out of 5 stars Double Dose of Morse March 11 2004
"Sects,Drugs&RocknRoll" gives the viewer a chance to see the great Steve Morse in 2 different bands. The disc contains a concert of Morse with the Dixie Dregs as well as with his own band in an intimate setting. Steve Morse has received many accolades for his playing ability since he started the Dregs back in the 70's. His career includes many solo albums, as well as recordings and tours with Kansas and Deep Purple. His diversity is one of his strengths. Great compositional skills, onstage interplay, and an unreal amount of chops are other strengths that are on display on this DVD. In addition to the 2 concerts there is a picture gallery and a comprehensive interview with Morse that I found to be well worth a viewing. The concerts are both worthy of multiple viewings.
The Dixie Dregs were formed by Morse and some college cohorts of his in the mid 70's. They mixed ,from their jazz influences; chops,improvisational skills, compositional skills together with rock energy and a bluegrass/country sound to form one of the most distinctive sounds in fusion. The show features the Dixie Dregs combo that has been touring together for the last 5 years. Dave Larue on bass, Jerry Goodmand on violin along with original Dregs members Morse, T Lavitz(Keys) and Rod Morgenstein(Drums). The Dregs show is called "Official Bootleg" for a reason. It is obvious that this doesn't hold up to the latest and greatest DVD releases for sound and editing. However, the sound is fine and the footage doesn't miss anything. The important thing is that you aren't missing anything and the music is great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what it should have been... Feb. 3 2004
I saw Steve give a seminar here in town in the late 80's. Although I'd never seen him perform live, I did go into the building fully aware of his talent. A new, first-hand impression that I left with was his almost hyper-sensitivity to quality and details. At one point, I remember him showing a slight degree of agitation, in front of us, towards the local sound guy's lack of knowledge regarding his set up and what should have been done before his talk with us - things that to me, as an amateur, seemed completely foreign. He stayed cool nonetheless. That's how he is, and we all know that. But a respectable, higher degree of professionalism and expectation than I'd not really seen before from another musician. He very clearly knew what he wanted.
I sat through this seminar, almost entirely in awe. I've heard all of the music. I've read all of the interviews and the clinics in the magazines. I know something of his biography, and ultimately consider myself a big fan.
Why Steve would put his name on this product and let it be put on the market is curious, to say the least. In a nutshell, for me anyway, it comes down to the sound on the Dregs portion of the DVD. In fact, it was sort of hard to get past that. The camera work and all of the other things that are mentioned in these reviews are valid points, but the sound in that one portion made me consider sending it back for a refund. And then there is that blurb in the back that sort of forewarns you that the weak quality on the Dregs sound is meant to give you that sense of a true live show. Ridiculous! Whoever determined what the "desired effect" should be certainly fell short. I actually think it serves as a rationalization for the weak result more than anything else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Amateur Video Hour-ARGH!! Aug. 20 2003
I was greatly looking forward to this DVD release, being a recent fan of both Steve Morse and the Dixie Dregs. I was very disappointed with the Dregs concert on this disc. It looks like it was shot by 3 amateurs with camcorders. For instance, there are some shots of Steve where he is moving while playing the guitar, and he'll move completely out of the picture, and the camera doesn't move! Also the picture itself is of lower quality compared to some recent video releases, like Satriani's live one, where the video quality is spectacular.
The venue has something to do with this, Todd's Place in New Haven is not exactly the greatest place to film a concert. But still, it all boils down to the filming, which is simply not good (jeez, the zeppelin concert DVD from 1970 has a far better picture). The sound mix was a little harsh, but acceptable. I can't understand why Steve would release this, the Dregs are great but the film is sub-par.
The good news is that the Morse solo concert on this disc is tremendous. It is filmed professionally, and the intimate performance is wonderful. Well worth watching again and again. Good job including this performance; its a real treat.
Also, the interviews with Steve and Deep Purple are worthwhile and enjoyable.
All in all, while Steve and the Dregs are great, this release could have been so much better, the film quality of the Dregs show is actually annoying at times. But, oh, the solo show is so good!!
