Morse/Portnoy/George Release “Cov3r To Cov3r”

Morse/Portnoy/George: Cov3r To Cov3rNeal Morse, Mike Portnoy, and Randy George have teamed up for a new album in their Cover To Cover series. Cov3r To Cov3r features the trio tearing through classic tracks by King Crimson, David Bowie, Jethro Tull, and more.

“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,” Portnoy explains. “Most of the songs are rooted in the 60s and 70s and are songs/bands we grew up with.”

George adds, “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!”

Hear the trio doing their version of Ringo Starr’s “It Don’t Come Easy,” featuring some melodic bass work by George:
