If you would like a studio quality recording of the album
on CD complete with proper sleeve notes then take a
visit to the shop.
As a background, all tracks were recorded between sept.
'04 and sept. '05. From this I chose the title morning glory which as
you may know is the flower for, you guessed it, September.
During the period spanned by these recordings I re-entered
education to work towards a humanities degree so thanks to Brian (phil)
and Frank (lit) for the literary and philosophical delights encountered
along the way.
