I appreciate the sentiment and enjoy both versions. A sign of a great song is how it holds up to translation by othert band. Solid cover. Take both for what they are worth. Great music. Give me this cover over many new songs of the day. Peace.

Why so many comments about how long this song is? The original was a long-a** song! My favorite Rush tune. Love all the time changes. No average Joe band is gonna pull this one off. Morse and friends nail it.

Strangiato has the most ridiculous time changes and Steve does a great job soloing over them but I agree with Rullian he just does not do it justice.

This is the best cover of this song I've ever heard. I bought this tribute CD when it came out.

Great cover of a great song. The band covering this includes Mike Portnoy, Billy Sheehan and Steve Morse...how can you go wrong with those three driving this bus?! Three killer musicians, paying tribute to a band worthy of it...who cares who thinks which version is better? Each version brings something fun and interesting to the table. Just appreciate it!!

Love Morse. Love this song. But, damnit, that first lead just can't compare to the original. Alex uses just the right amount of notes and phrasing to build the perfect amount of tension. Morse does a great job but, right from the start with the volume swells, he simply overplays. The second lead is better though.

James Labrie did Red Barchetta on his solo album but his voice just doesn't compare to Geddys I don't think it does it justice. But good none the less.

Oh and Rush's version of La villa is better...

never heard of steve, but great cover of La Villa Strangiato, may like it better than Rushs'.

You can play YYZ, cool; but can you play La Villa Stangiato? Most time changes in a Rush song. Awesome cover

As covers go...this is amazing. I thought I was listening to Rush until I checked out the information on the artist. He is obviously an amazing guitar player.

@O2Shredder: Dream Theater's version of Red Barchetta is better than the original Rush did. Just saying...
Report as inappropriate
I know this is supposed to be a display of Morse's guitar skill, but the drums are equally killer on this!

This is killer! Well done Steve!

What a compliment to Rush. In covering someone else's song, it's important to add/change some inflection, interpretati o n , style. Just don't allow a Reggae version. Wow, pretty nice cover of Geddy's pieces, too.

the rush version is better
but im a huge rush fan and a guitar player
TECHNICAL GUITAR PLAYERS FTW!!!! (hence alex lifeson)
alex's sound is better, its a little more (well alot more) treably, and i like that.

Ok, so it's not Rush. Jeez... Listen close and try to see under the surface, absorb the arrangement. I think you'll find it has a lot of merit, all on it's own. This is a very tight band; an amazing effort.

One of my favorite Rush songs (kinda hard to pick ONE favorite). I like the tribute/cove r , it is very well done. However, it seems to have lost the 'feeling' that Alex had when he played it. I've seen Rush play it live 3 times and it just seemed to have more emotion to it.

@Dr.Remulak Thats because he got ALD. He lost his balls and stopped soloing/chop s , changed his clothing/att i t u d e to the ones of an eunuch...man

I agree with Johnny. Good cover but not as crisp as Rush.

I have seen them both live and steve has played with some of the best but I think alex is the most underated guitar player of all time,he has that complete wall of sound that is hard to find.Love this tribute and the longer the better...... . . .

Good job Steve on the tribute..... . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

This is indeed very cool, but its impossible to top the creative vision of everyone's favorite prog rock trio. I seriously doubt anyone could ever play one of Rush's songs better than themselves. But I don't think that was the point here anyway. Its a testament to Morse's versatility

Nice "cover" of Rush... but it will never be better than the original.

laxross005 is nuts! This version smokes Rush's version!!! Alex Lifeson only wishes he was as good as Steve Morse! We are all not worthy!

Only Morse could pull it off with a twist to make it sound just like the 78 Rush would have.

Morse is King!!
