    These two special albums are now collected together on one release and have been remastered specially for this re-issue

    Morgan Fisher is probably best known as the keyboard player with British rock band Mott The Hoople in the seventies. Prior to that however Morgan had tasted success with British pop band Love Affair and just prior to Mott The Hoople had led his own band simply called Morgan and also briefly been a member of avant-garde rock band the Third Ear Band. Following the departure of Mott The Hoople's front man Ian Hunter the band opted to continue shortening the name to Mott and bringing in a new vocalist and guitarist. When this didn't work out despite recording two excellent albums the band brought in former Medicine Head vocalist John Fiddler and changed their name once again to the British Lions. When this band fell apart after two albums Morgan set out on a solo career and recorded a couple of albums under the name of the Hybrid Kids. Following a short stint playing keyboards for Queen on the road Morgan set off on his travels and amongst the countries he travelled to was India. On his return he lived in a commune and decided to record an album there working with another member of the commune producer John Leckie who had worked with Simple Minds, Public Image and XTC and would go on to work in the future with the Stone Roses. This album was called Seasons and featured John Fiddler on vocals on two of the tracks alongside Morgan.

    Although the album has its roots in new age the music is decidedly world music although at the time of recording the term was not in popular use. The material on the album is also a homage to Morgan's sixties roots and contains interesting arrangements of such classics like Time of the Season, and Kites. In 1984 Morgan Fisher decided to move to Japan having visited the country and taking an immense liking to it. It was shortly after arriving there that he recorded the album Look At Life subtitled "ten instrumental responses to a beautiful world". While in Japan Morgan also came across two Brazilian musicians who also worked on the album giving some of the songs a pronounced Latin feel. One of the songs Erik is also a personal homage to one of Morgan's musical heroes. Erik Satie The cover of the album also bears the name "Veetdharm" which is the name his spiritual teacher gave him.
