5.0 out of 5 stars please re issue again !, 28 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Its Morrissey Man (Audio CD)
Here is some historical background. Colin Barnes, this groups drummer was my schoolfriend's elder brother but it was Colin I can thank for giving me the life long interest in jazz. I spent loads of time listening to music around his house and remember talk about this album being made. It was recorded at Merton Studios I think and at the back was an old railway goods line that they used for the cover background. They had to walk along it carrying "musical identification" The bass player drew the short straw! It is an interesting record with Dick's technique shining through. He did owe a lot to Sonny Rollins at that time but none the worse for that. I did own the vinyl but sold it years ago (worth a small fortune now probably). I missed out buying the re-issue made about the time Dick died a few years ago. I live in hope of buying a copy at a reasonable price. Definitely worth having particularly if you are a Dick Morrissey fan.

Thank you Andrew for your review. I have done some research on the studio where Its Morrissey Man was recorded. Colin has always said it was at a studio somewhere off Oxford Street. I have concluded that this would have been the Phillips Studio that at the time was at Stanhope Place near Marble Arch. Fontana was part of Philips at the time. The railway line on the cover according to Colin was somewhere near Maidenhead. Dick and Colin had made a private recording for an accetate which Colin still has a copy of when Dick played the clarinet. This was at R.G. Jones, a small studio which was a hut, in Morden Park. Andrew it was good to read your review. John Barnes
