@ Merry Christmas From The Morse Family
Since 1984, Neal Morse has been writing and recording a Christmas song and sending it to family and friends as a gift.
Now Neal's re-recorded some of those songs and written a few new ones to make a Christmas CD for your tree-trimming pleasure. This record is for your wives!
Styles range from children's songs to jazz, pop, gospel and traditional. It even includes a Sinatra and Elvis parody. Made at home, Neal's even included some of the original 4 track demos dating back to 1984.

@ Cover To Cover
Neal Morse, Mike Portnoy and Randy George (M-P-G) have recorded some amazing versions of other artists' songs over the past few years. A few have ended up as bonus tracks on Special Edition versions of Neal's progressive rock CDs. Here they are all on one CD, including many that have never before been available. The song list:
Pleasant Valley Sunday - The Monkees
Badge - Cream
Maybe I'm Amazed - Paul McCartney
Where Do The Children Play - Cat Stevens
I'm The Man - Joe Jackson
Feeling Stronger Everyday - Chicago
Rock And Roll Suicide - David Bowie
Where The Streets Have No Name - U2
Day After Day - Badfinger
What Is Life? - George Harrison
I'm Free / Sparks - The Who
Tuesday Afternoon - Moody Blues
Find My Way Back Home - Blind Faith
The last song's title (and some lyrics too) was changed from "Can't Find my way home" to the more optimistic "Find My Way Back Home".

@ Testimony 2
"Testimony 2" is the sequel to "Testimony", with which Neal started his prog solo career in 2003 and which is a very personal testimony of his conversion to Christianity. This release, however, doesn't tell the events since the release of "Testimony", but rather targets the part of Neal's story that triggered his radical change: The healing of his daughter, who was born with a hole in her heart. The healing that turned his life inside out and eventually led him to leave his highly successful progressive rock band Spock's Beard in 2002.
As befits a sequel, the album opens with a musical theme from "Testimony", while the track list logically starts with part six. The album is divided into three pieces, each more than 20 minutes long, in which familiar motifs appear throughout. A highlight not only on paper but also on the album is the contribution of Neal's old Spock's Beard bandmates Nick D'Virgilio, Dave Meros and Alan Morse in "Time Changer", who sing dizzying vocal harmonies in the best Gentle Giant and "Thoughts Part II" style. But Neal and his now longtime companions Mike Portnoy (ex-Dream Theater, Transatlantic) and Randy George (Ayalon) have saved the best for last: With "It's For You" and "Crossing Over / Mercy Street Revisited", the record ends as breathtaking as Transatlantic's "The Whirlwind" or "One" and "Sola Scriptura" from Neal's solo catalog. It delivers so much power, so much sensitivity and so much authenticity that it is simply amazing and deeply touching.
CD2 contains three more songs that have no connection to the Testimony concept, including the spectacular 20-minute epic "Seeds Of Gold". No other than Deep Purple guitarist Steve Morse contributes a fantastic guitar solo. Also Paul Bielatowicz, who has established himself as tour guitarist of the Carl Palmer band and who now made himself known as a longtime member of the European Neal Morse live band, has once again proven his skills with two sensational guitar solos on CD1. The Limited Edition of this album will feed the inquisitive fan even more with a one-hour "Making Of" DVD.
