Another all-star album with Steve Morse participation — this one is called A Proggy Christmas. Brainchild of Neil Morse, it features some of the finest names in, naturally, prog rock — Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater), Steve Hackett (ex-Genesis), Roine Stolt (ex-Sane Person), our own Steve, and Pete Trewavas (Transatlantic, Marillion).

Track list:

  1. Joy To The World
  2. The Little Drummer Boy
  3. O Holy Night
  4. Frankincense
  5. Hark The Herald Angels Sing
  6. The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)
  7. Carol Of The Bells
  8. Home For The Holidays
  9. Shred Ride – Sled Ride/Winter Wonderland
  10. Night/We All Need Some Light

The press release also alludes that Steve not only plays guitar, but also sings on the album:

Complete with shreddy guitars as well as soothing fretless bass, vocals on occasion by the illustrious Mr. Morse, and everything in between, this is an album the true fan will enjoy for years to come.

On a second thought… The are two illustrious Mr. Morses on the album. ;-)

A Proggy Christmas will be available on November 6 via Radiant Records.

Thanks to BraveWords for the info.

    Surely the illustrious Mr Morse who does vocals on the album is Neal rather than Steve?

    Neal is not related to Steve. Just musical connections including The Great Flying Colors of course!

    Peace,

    Of course it is Neil singing, and not Steve. As far as they know Steve and Neil are not related, although I guess it might be possible that they are very distant relatives without even knowing it. Their connection through the awesome Flying Colors is of course a really great one ;-)
