Dave Morgan & Richard Tandy — EarthRise (1984) [Special Ed. 18 Aug. 2011]

                Dave Morgan & Richard Tandy — EarthRise 
♠   The 1980's revisited in this ground breaking symphonic rock album recorded by two ELO musicians. Product Description: 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. As a result of an interview with David for Rock Legacy, Tandy and Morgan felt the time was right to collaborate on a special edition re–issue CD on Rock Legacy Records. At Richard's suggestion, the billing has been changed to Morgan Tandy, to reflect David's role as songwriter, instrumentalist, vocalist and co–producer of Earthrise Special Edition.

Rock Legacy writes:
♠   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, cf, 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, since as Dave says, ELO would never have been the same without his partner, Richard Tandy. 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.
About the Artist
♠   David Scott–Morgan and Richard Tandy are stalwarts of the Birmingham music scene. David turned down an offer to join 60's headliners, The Move, but wrote songs for them. Richard Tandy joined The Electric Light Orchestra and his keyboard work for Jeff Lynne became an essential part of the ELO sound. Scott–Morgan joined ELO for their Time tour as a guitarist and sang the parts for the vocoder. He also had a big hit in Europe, "Hiroshima" performed by Sandra.
