2007 digitally remastered reissue of this 1976 solo album from the Gong leader. .In 1975, following his departure from Gong, the highly influential group he had founded, Daevid Allen sought musical solace in the village of Deja on the island of Mallorca. Here he encountered a group of Catalan musicians, Euterpe, with whom Allen began a collaboration. Recorded in Mallorca, this album was released by Virgin Records to great acclaim, being a unique work that was regarded by fans and critics as being equally as good as anything he recorded with Gong, if not better. Esoteric.
This IS his best solo effort!

"This record is fantastic! Daevid was a founding member of The Soft Machine. Very talented an intreguing song writer. This record leans on some rarely explored folk side of music. Daevid challenges us with intricate melodies and a less fancy over all sound than what we have seen in his Gong band days. This still has many progressive electric elements in it too. Released in 1976, this record is more progressive folk with some space and prog rock influence. It is fresh today because nobody else has done anything like it before or since! Excellent spin if you can find it!"

"Originally released in 1976,as this was Daevid Allen's second solo outing.A rather good art rock/Canterbury record,I thought.'Good Morning' is a more acoustic set(w/no drums)that showcases some really nice glissando guitar work.Noticed that fellow Gong mate space whisper mistress Gilli Smyth shows up here.Tunes I was most impressed w/were the title track "Good Morning","French Garden",the eleven-minute "Wise Man In Your Heart" and "Euterpe Gratitude Piece".A should-have."
