Samarkand The Golden - Alone - Wargames - Nova Solis

It's 1972 and Love Affair are no more. They had achieved great success in 1968 with the single "Everlasting Love". The nucleus of musicians in that band formed Morgan, named after their keyboard player Morgan Fisher. They retired "to the country" in time-honoured prog-rock band tradition and came up with material for their debut album.

The deal with RCA, Italy took them to sunnier climes and they entered the fabulously high-tech RCA studios outside Rome. The studio was so modern they had actually floated the entire building on oil, apparently to insulate it from the vibrations of the Fiat trucks on the neighbouring Via Tiburtina.

"Nova Solis" is now released on CD for the first time, and is an excellent companion to the 1973 album "The Sleeper Wakes" (also on Angel Air - SJPCD049). The twelve page full colour booklet includes introductory sleeve notes from Morgan Fisher and updated artwork by Tim Staffell.
