In February 1972 the group was in EMI's Sydney Studios to record the all important follow-up single. They were now under the direction of New Zealander Rod Coe to do the recording. Rod had been bass player for Revival and later was also a member of Freshwater. This time the single was Phil Key's "Morning Good Morning". It was certainly one of Phil's finest works, but for some reason it failed to replicate the success of the previous single on the charts.
I purchased the "Morning Good Morning" 45 r.p.m. cheaply while working part time at a Taylor's record shop in Cessnock N.S.W. The reason being, that it didn’t sell, so the manger let me have it for ten cents rather than it sit on the shelves any longer…until I got it home I had never heard it. What a serendipitous find!
Some of the La De Das who had solo careers have tracks located at Ozzie The Music Man's blog (click link):
The mono 7' single of “Morning Good Morning” has appeared on C.D. but the stereo album version has not.
