Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy, and Randy George, collectively known as Morse Portnoy George, have announced they will release the first two volumes of their Cover To Cover releases on vinyl for the very first time.
The Cover To Cover series sees the trio, who all feature in Neal Morse's own band, indulging in cover versions of some of their favourite sings from the 60s, 70s and 80s. The original Cover To Cover was released in 2006 and followed it up with a second volume Cover 2 Cover in 2012.
“One of the first things myself, Neal and Randy usually start talking about what we can cover when we gather for one of Neal’s solo albums, should we have some leftover time at the end of the session," explains drummer Mike Portnoy. "Most of the songs are rooted in the 60s and 70s and are songs / bands we grew up with.” Explains George, “We all share an attachment for this era of music, so we each throw out song ideas, see what sticks, and record the ones we like the most!”
