9/11/13 – Morgen -1969 – A Forgotten Classic Psych Rock Album.

Morgen - 1969 - Cover Art

Morgen fronted by guitar player Steve Morgen, came out of Long Island, New York in 1969. Releasing just one album on Probe records they were never heard of again.

I managed to find a reissue vinyl album, the original would cost you more than your car. The album mixes psychedelia, rock, melody and fuzz with some intriguing lyrics.

There’s not much information on this group so best just sit back and listen and if you like it see if you can find a vinyl copy as that’s the best way to enjoy a record like this.

The cover art features one of Norwegian artist Edvard Munch’s (pronounced munk) most famous works, The Scream. He created four versions between 1893 and 1910. This lithograph version used on the Morgen album cover was created by Munch in 1895.

Album tracks:

1. Welcome To The Void
2. Of Dreams
3. Beggin’ Your Pardon (Miss Joan)
4. Eternity In Between
5. Purple
6. She’s The Nitetime
7. Love
