MORNING GLORY - Need Someone

MORNING GLORY - 'Need Someone' (mono) / 'Need Someone' (stereo) (Fontana F-1613) May 1968

Hippie rock is the order of the day here with two versions of Bob Bohanna's song 'Need Someone'. The extended stereo version coming in at 4:28 was on Morning Glory's LP 'Two Suns Worth'. However the edited mono version @ 2:31 was only available on this promotional 45 released by Fontana. Even then, most copies had another album track 'I See The Light' on the flip.

Morning Glory may have come from the San Francisco area although their album was recorded at a studio in Hollywood and produced by Abe Kesh who also worked with Blue Cheer.
John Cale of the Velvet Underground engineered.

line-up:

Gini Graybeal (vocals)
Bob Bohanna (bass)
Larry Gerughty (organ)
Daniel NuDelman (lead guitar)
Allen Wehr (drums)

Larry Gerughty previously played keyboards in Butch Engle & The Styx.
