About the Album:
Contemplative personal story telling about love, break ups and growing older. Twenty songs which encompass forty years of song writing. From the embryo of the lyrics to Moon Over Cairo in 1980, to 2020's title track, the album is a newly imagined retrospective of previously unrecorded songs and new material.
The title track for the new album was inspired by a review of the 2020 Bob Dylan album Rough and Rowdy Ways and looks at creativity as part of the ageing process and the gift of experience over the exuberance of youth.
The tracks were recorded during the Covid 19 lockdown of 2020.

About the Album:
Between 2003 and 2005 I was in a rocking and rolling band called The Collaborators. This new album is an acoustic re-imagining of songs from that bands 2004 album "Far and Distant World". (now re-released and available as "Another Far and Distant World). During the Covid 19 lockdown of 2020, whilst there was no opportunity for live performances, I hit upon the idea of reworking these songs in an acoustic folk style for flute and acoustic guitar to post videos on Facebook. The reaction was good and it was suggested an album of the songs would be nice, so here it is. It has been recorded to keep that live feel we had when performing the video shoot to an empty room. Feel free to add your own audience noise.

with the song: Midnight Special Late Night Radio Show

Midnight Special Late Night Radio Show" will be released May 10th 2019 and is accompanied by a lyric video on You Tube.
The single is from the forthcoming new Jimmy Lee Morris album Run to the Sun (July 12th). The album was made at home in Devon away from everything and everyone.
The album grew itself, jamming around with my 9 year old son Archie on drums, having fun and just keeping it simple. He did a great job, so cool.
