Erik Norlander

The Galactic Collective: Live in Gettysburg DVD

Review by Gary Hill

What can you say about Erik Norlander? The guy produces quality products, plain and simple. This live DVD is just such a thing. If you like progressive rock that is fairly mainstream, yet still meaty and creative (and really since a lot of this is instrumental, how mainstream can it be?) then this is for you. It would be a great introduction to the work of this awesome artist. The sound is great, the video is great and it’s a pretty perfect product. Norlander is joined on this one by Mark Matthews (bass), Nick LePar (drums), Freddy DeMarco (guitar), his wife Lana Lane (vocals) and Debrissa McKinney (vocals). It includes not only the DVD, but also a double CD set of the audio from the show. Frankly, I think every DVD should come that way.
