Putting out a CD of mostly cover tunes can be a risky move, especially if the songs chosen fall into the category of iconic, rock masterpieces. No matter if the band is a well-known, established act or a newcomer; the remakes will always be compared with the original, which can set a very high standard. The bar moves a bit higher with the decision to go all instrumental, leaving no place to hide musical mistakes or inabilities. As it turns out, Ron Brendle, Troy Conn and Chris Garges are a talented group of musicians who demonstrate their extraordinary musical ability by turning out an impressive collection of tunes.
