"Well, the big day is now here!," announces Radiant Records. "We are now beginning to take pre-orders for Neal Morse’s new studio prog extravaganza Lifeline!
"Neal Morse - Lifeline - Special Edition: 2 CD set with Bonus disc containing 6 extra tracks! Featuring the stunning guitar work of Paul Gilbert and Paul Bielatowicz. Featuring Mike Portnoy of Dream Theater. Plus extra pages of personal notes and photos!
"The bonus disc on this thing is incredible!," the Radiant Records release continues. "With some crazy covers (like 'Crazy Horses' originally done by the Osmond Brothers and 'Lemons' by the Bee Gees!) and some brilliant original songs that for some reason didn't make the cut, this is one of the best bonus discs Neal has ever put out ... and that’s some pretty high marks.Paul Gilbert’s blistering guitar work is a perfect match for Mike Portnoy’s driving kicks on 'Crazy Horses' (Mike sings it too ... classic!), and 'Set The Kingdom' is a great prog piece that should have been on the main album, but I guess they ran out of room. Neal is at his best on Elvis Costello’s classic 'What’s So Funny ('Bout Peace, Love And Understanding)' as well the Joe Cocker version of 'The Letter' and his poppy original 'Sometimes.' All this and the extra personal notes from Neal regarding each song makes this Special Edition truly special. A rare find these days."
