Track List Disc 2
Early Work is a surprising, eclectic overview of Morsberger’s search for his ‘voice’ as a literate songwriter, with material from the mid-Eighties showing that his songwriting craft was already strongly in place from the beginning. The entire collection represents a unique sound in his catalogue, being essentially built around solo, intimate piano performances and vocal arrangements, with a stellar cast of players teasing these out into assorted duets and trios with a few full band arrangements (guest singers include Loudon Wainwright III, Marshall Crenshaw, Suzzy Roche). The double CD reveals the early work of a uniquely talented man, as he navigates a decade of his life and his art.
“Rob duets Suzy Roche on the slow-moving ‘Ocean Of Blue’ and with Marshall Crenshaw on the country-sway of “Fool’s Paradise.’ The set closes with “Rainbow Girl’ as you truly appreciate Rob as one of the best songwriters of his generation.” —The Record-Journal (CT)
