Download of newest album
Made in Britain - it used to say that on stuff – remember? Now it says ‘Made in China’ or ‘Made in Swaziland’ … but MORGANISATION loves all things British – Shakespeare, Churchill, tea, Spitfires & Hurricanes, The Beatles, 007, fish & chips, Foyles War, did I mention tea?… Yes we love all that and why not? Here in the middle of the lock-down at Grimm Doo studios, Birmingham, we are safe at the heart of the empire. What do ya mean the empire’s gone???!!! Well never mind, we’re Made in Britain. Flippin ‘eck, aint that enough? ; )
Seven album Digital download
Seven digital download
So here is Dave Scott-Morgan’s Morganisation with SEVEN: British Guitar Music drawn from different wells and different times brought together in this new album release. Dave Scott-Morgan, hit songwriter and former guitarist with the Electric Light Orchestra hard-wires the music and heads up the cast with his music creation tribe Morganisation and - I see looking at the sleeve credits - contributions by Tony Clarkin (Magnum), Richard Tandy (ELO) and even the late Carl Wayne (The Move). SEVEN, though an eclectic mix of songs, is in the style of latter-day Beatlesque pop. Its Dave’s seventh CD, set for release on July seven - the seventh day of the seventh month… and it has SEVEN songs on it (plus a bonus track)!
Reel 2 Digital Download
Eclectic album of ballads, rock and pop
These previously unfinished old demos along with some newly recorded songs now see a release as 'REEL TWO' an album comprising mostly of love songs...The opening track 'GOLDEN OLDIES' springs the album into life and from there you embark on a roller-coaster of emotions. With tracks as strong as 'APRIL FLOWERS', 'WHAT LOVE ISN'T', 'EVER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER', 'THE BIT IN THE MIDDLE', 'NOTHING SAYS', 'PERFECT LOVE', and 'PLEASE DON'T GO' (which is a real tear jerker), they will be played over and over again and are going to be remembered as beautifully crafted classics. The quality of the songs are timeless, the production exceptional and Dave's voice has simply never sounded better than on this wonderful collection of songs. 'MODESTE' (a Jim Cleary song) deserves comparison with ELO's "HELLO MY OLD FRIEND" and the album also has it's humourous moments with 'GO GETTER LADY' and 'DO YOU MIND?' a song so full of tongue in cheek moments, watch out for the sting at the end of the song! 'YES IT IS', is a great cover of this sixties BEATLES b-side, and is arguably no less beautiful than the original. Recorded in an unplugged style the whole track send's shivers down your spine. All songs are performed by Dave Morgan with contributing musicians including former ELO stars Richard Tandy and Martin Smith along with Bob Wilson, Tony Kelsey, Alan Smith, Mandy Scott-Morgan, Nadine Stavonina, Lisa Kelsey, Pip Allkins, Steve Wilson, J.J.Ford and George Styles who provided the wonderful humourous trackette at the end. The songs on this album all add up to one thing, pure enjoyment. This collection of songs are simply the best collection of ELO-related songs to be released in a long, long time. Enjoy them to the full. Alan Heath's review in 'King of the Universe' magazine
Highland EP digital download
New Digital EP by Dave with his MOrganisation
Five songs - Biographical, social comment, and the mandatory romantic (!) – all built around the ambience of the Scottish Highlands. ‘Big Brown Sky’ and ‘Gibraltar Farm’ are songs first heard on Morganisation’s ‘Bubbles’ album, now remixed and re-mastered; ‘Still’ and ‘The Eyes of Lochaber’ birthed out of Dave's highland experience. When it's time to leave there is ‘Not in Narnia’ (a tongue in cheek lament of heading back down the M6). The cover art is a painting by highland artist Claire Innis, and the EP is available as a digital download from June 26 (Violette Szabo's birthday).
Earthrise Special Edition Digital Download
Morgan Tandy Symphonic Rock album
Originally released in the USA in 1984, Earthrise was an album by Richard Tandy and David Morgan, recorded and released after they finished touring as members of The Electric Light Orchestra.
Pull the plug on your ear-player and get out the old stereogram, for this deserves to be heard BIG. Earthrise is symphonic rock, with interwoven themes, leitmotivs and often complex and lush movements. It is also pure high quality pop, of the kind that is massive in Europe and practically non-existent in the UK, eg, The Alan Parsons Project, who never got airplay here (and still don’t) but who are huge in the rest of Europe and the US. It is not surprising that the Europop feel of Scott Morgan’s work, which is evident here, was attractive to Sandra Ann Laur and her de facto Guru, Michael Cretu, the man behind Enigma. (Sandra recorded "Hiroshima" written by Morgan and it became a big hit in Europe) It is no surprise of course that there is an ELO sound in places. Morgan’s voice cannot be underestimated; sometimes Dylanesque, sometimes quite calm and pure, and then again funky or rocky. If ever there was a case of a vocal being an instrument, this is it, especially when it is mixed by a vocoder. The album is a testimony to what can be done with relatively sophisticated technology when it is under the complete control of master musicians. It has overtones of Alan Parsons, ELO, Jean Michelle Jarre and Klaatu (the creators of Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft). As a whole, it is an album you can listen to from beginning to end, and you know, you can still do this, in high-fi, in-room stereo. Rock Legacy.
Bubbles album digital download
The 2017 album by Dave with his Morganisation
The first CD under the MOrganisation banner - that's my group and music creation tribe. But why call it ‘Bubbles’? - well that’s because it's got songettes sort of bubbling up between some of the tracks! – there are three of them – the opener ‘I’d love to see you’, ‘The Rockford bubble’ introduces ‘Mistress Caroline’ and ‘Ceilidh Light’ ends the album after ‘Big Brown Sky.’ Happy Bubbling!
B.C. Collection Digital album
Tandy Morgan Smith Album
This collection began life as a one-off for the ELO fan club back in 1992. It has been in constant reprint ever since and is now a classic collectors item of punchy, melodic pop-rock by ELO musicians Richard Tandy, Dave Morgan and Martin Smith.
'Across the Divide' digital download
Dave's songs with his MOrganisation
Dave Scott-Morgan aided and abetted by a fusillade of fine musicians. In the last century Dave was part of the world-famous group, ELO - and also the writer of a major European hit. This 11 track album bravely melds myriads of styles, mixing conventional recording techniques with an innovative creativity and energy you'd expect from a rock 'n' roller from the Old School. It also contains the wry Brummy tongue-in-cheek element that propelled stars into the limelight from its earthy and pithy launch pad.
But take it seriously if you want to!
