Steve Morse Band Albums Ranked and Complete Discography

Steve Morse Band Albums

Our Steve Morse Band Albums Ranked and Complete Discography list looks at the career of quite possibly the hardest working guitar player in rock and roll. There are not many guitar players that have been part of so many classic rock groups while also celebrating such a phenomenal solo career. Most of us old rock and roll fans first discovered the talents of Steve Morse when he was the guitarist in the great rock and roll fusion band the Dixie Dregs who were also at times just known as the Dregs. Others first discovered the genius of Steve Morse when he became the guitarist in Kansas in the 1980s. And of course many more fans first learned of the talents of Steve Morse when he joined Deep Purple. Steve Morse didn’t just join Kansas and Deep Purple for short periods of time. He spent many years with both groups touring and recording with them.

Besides his work with the Dixie Dregs, Kansas and Deep Purple, Steve Morse has also put together some other great fusion bands like Flying Colors, Angelfire and Living Loud. Of course there are hundreds and hundreds of other rock and roll albums that he has also made guest appearances on. Starting to get the picture about the hardest working guitarist in rock and roll?

With so many collaborative efforts, we thought we would narrow down this list to just the albums Steve Morse released with his group he called The Steve Morse Band. We are not including the solo Steve Morse albums, just the ones titled the Steve Morse Band. And let me tell you my rock and roll friends there are eight great ones that we have listed below.
