As with the other entries in the Magna Carta Prime Cuts series, the Steve Morse edition collects several standout recordings that the guitarist played on for the label. While this ten-track release (the last track being a video interview) should in no way, shape, or form be considered a Morse overview — not a single track from his Dixie Dregs or Deep Purple eras is included (as well as nada from most of his solo recordings) — Prime Cuts does serve as a kind of "unconventional taster" of Morse's playing. For example, you get a simply shredding rendition of Rush's never-ending instrumental "La Villa Strangiato," as well as some nifty acoustic guitar diddling on Yes' "The Clap." And while they may not be the best-known solo cuts from his career, tracks such as "Heightened Awareness" and "Busybodies" are indeed worthy showcases of Morse's vast guitar talents.
