Morgan Fisher - Ivories

From 1966 to 1970 Morgan Fisher played the organ with the Soul Survivors, who in 1967 were renamed The Love Affair. Between 1972 and 1973 he formed the progressive rock band named Morgan, with singer Tim Staffel (the vocalist with the band Smile, who later became Queen). From 1973 to 1976, he joined seminal British glam rockers, Mott The Hoople. Ivories is Morgan Fisher’s solo album for RCA Italy, recorded in 1972. This album gave Morgan a chance to work in the area somewhere between the Morgan band’s music and the musical influences he’d been passionately absorbing for years - modern classical music, film scores from France and Italy, and electronic music. By the time it was released Morgan had remixed it and added two extra tracks and bizarre snippets of real-life dialogue recorded during his travels and studio sessions with Mott and British Lions. One of Morgan’s most cutting-edge albums, it offers a glimpse into his and creative musical imagination.
