The Musicians' Olympus. This is intended to be a homage to very many musicians I've loved since I started listening to music. Morgan Fisher is a genius. There, I said it. I mean, how else could he make some of the most inventive and interesting prog rock on the planet and end up in his late 50s writing music for commercials in Japan, and getting a pretty penny for it I would hope.
Sounds like a good gig to me, and a good life lived for this king of B-list prog, master of the sideshow and winner of countless Best Music No One Really Cares About awards. I don't know, maybe Fisher's playfulness appeals to me something usually missing from today's prog. Or maybe his truly impressive musical range and compositional gifts are just too hard to ignore despite the funhouse feeling on this debut from And then there's the spectacle.
All I know is Nova Solis is spilling over with atmosphere and imagery, and the fact is that Morgan Fisher gave more on his records than many of the bigger names of the time. It's an album wherein, as John Lennon said of Mr. Kite; "You should be able to smell the peanuts". Solis is an extravaganza of what had become possible with the rock format, a parade of idea after idea passing like giant floats, each eagerly waiting in line to be revealed.
This is prog when things were closer to the wild west, with as many snakeoil salesmen and roaming criminals as reliable merchants and ranchers. But among the scoundrels, Morgan Fisher and songwriting partner Tim Staffell were legit.
Every aging, coffee-swilling cigarette smoker with a bad hankerin' for prog and a tragically steady paycheck who's collection from Britain between and is larger than that thing they launched the space shuttle from will deny to their death this is the godsmack of second tier symphonic prog. But it is and they know it.
Similarities are hard to peg for these guys, it was such an original group. Certainly the brilliant descriptive and incidental work of Raymond Scott is apparent in Fisher's material, as well as Syd Barrett's sense of adventure, the circuses of Dave Greenslade and maybe a whiff of Zappa.
Derivative 'Alone' is a miss but 'War Games' rocks, Bacon tearing up his drums, Staffell's vaguely biblical lyric and giddy vocal, and Fisher terrific on all number of keys from a Steinway Grand to a Hammond to a Spinet as he knits up the background, always sure to never let a good moment go to waste.

An alternate take of the song appears on the John Lennon Anthology box set as well as the Acoustic album The picture on the sleeve for release of "Love" was taken by famed photographer Annie Leibovitz on 8 December —the day of Lennon's murder. Like the British issue, the original version of the song was released as a single again in October for the Japanese market only with the Japanese edition of another compilation Lennon Legend: The Very Best of John Lennon.
This song gained great success on Japan's Oricon chart and won the song of the year in Japanese gold disc prize. The musicians who performed on the original recording were as follows: .
The Dream Academy covered this song on their album A Different Kind of Weather , and also released as a single CD, cassette, and vinyl formats are available. The song samples the " Funky Drummer " drum break. Like the album it was released on, it received mixed reviews.
Many critics and fans felt that they over-stretched it. There are also exclusive remixes issued on the cassette and 12" single. As it turned out, this was the band's penultimate single and has an accompanying video that was shot in India.
The Lettermen recorded the song in This single became a top 20 hit on the Japanese Oricon singles chart and hit number 42 on the US Billboard Hot chart, becoming the only charting version of the song in the US and the last charting single of the group's career. Barbra Streisand covered the song in on her album Barbra Joan Streisand , along with another Lennon composition " Mother ".
Jimmy Nail 's version, featured on his album Big River , was also released as a single on 8 December the 15th anniversary of Lennon's death , and peaked at number 33 in the UK charts.Morgan Fisher's unique album, combining his original color photographs with arrangements of non-Beatle Lennon music, produces an outstandingly unique work of art. His passionate keyboard work overflows with images, ardent musings, and heartfelt wisdom that wonderfully echoes the poetry of Lennon and his charismatic life. The musical line is minimal, only digital piano and percussion; the 6/
