Good Morning World - Album Reviews
Alan Munson, the songwriter of Cooley-Munson duo, continued the folk-rock way. It took him some time, but in 1975 he was ready for what is (for him, and for me too), his best 70's work. We, at Guerssen, think "Good Morning World" is a killer album!
Incredibly, "Good Morning World" was only released in cassette, and in a limited run. Under these circumstances, I'm so glad to put this out at last the way it should be. "Good Morning World" includes nine original, acoustic based songs with a mellow psych and folk rock sound across this album. Meaningful and understandable lyrics, delivered by "close-up" lead vocals, and background harmony vocals. Instruments played on the album include 6 string acoustic guitar, 12 string acoustic guitar, electric bass and percussion.

Munson's next project, Good Morning World may be his strongest effort. This mellow spin on the west coast sound resembles a Curt Boettcher production (The Millennium, Sagittarius) that doesn't try as hard. It's that good.

Alan's appeal is in his ability as a songwriter and composer as well as his sweet vocals. With an electric sound as a back-up, he skillfully utilizes the beautiful acoustic sounds. Already having composed more than 400 songs, we can only hope that with this comeback Alan will continue to provide us with more beautiful sounds.

The beautiful vocal harmonies on this solo album are still there, as if he never quit as a duo...
