SCOTT MORGAN: ROLLING STONE REVIEW BY DAVID FRICKE





It's unfair but true: Scott Morgan is Michigan rock's greatest unknown singer. Locally in the Sixties, with the Rationals, Morgan was as big as Bob Seger and Mitch Ryder, fusing British young-man blues with native soul on a stunning run of singles.

Morgan kept on making near-miss classics ("Take a Look," "Electrophonic Tonic," "16 With a Bullet") with a murderer's row of high-energy accomplices, including the MC5's Fred "Sonic" Smith and Stooges drummer Scott Asheton.

This three-disc compilation covers all of that ground into this century, with official releases and rarities that affirm Morgan's prowess, legend and the stardom he still deserves.

    Right On! David Fricke is the only great rock journalist left at RS.
    A smart dude. Cheers to Scott! (and KIM!)
