My journey to having this among my most played discs is long and winding. At some point is discovered Gram Parsons and Outlaw Country. Part of that necessarily including getting interested in Sweetheart of the Rodeo and its epic Parsons' composition "Hickory Wind". I was never terribly interested in the Byrds' other stuff, but I was interested in Dylan covers, and then covers of great country and folk songs in general. I got more familiar with Hillman's role in country rock by reading up on the Flying Burrito Brothers. One day while looking through his stuff I ran across the tracklisting on this disc which included not only "Hickory Wind" but also my favorite dead song, "Ripple", and "The Taker" which is a great Shel Silverstein song done by Waylon Jennings. I figured, hey if he's running through a set with songs like these, its got to be promising. Its better than promising. This album is relentlessly laid back. Its like a bunch of great musicians jamming country and bluegrass on the porch of a ranch farmhouse. Its intimate, the harmonies are glorious, and the renditions of each and every song is classic. I've gotten to the point where if I'm having a good Sunday morning, driving back from the country, or just heading out somewhere. This is the record I put on. It's pretty close to a traditional bluegrass record except with ample amount of pedal steel guitar. The version of "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues" is classic and probably the best song on the record. "Ripple" is a great contrasting take to the original. In general all of the songs have this laid back, kind of reflective fondless for life. Its a shame this record is not more highly known. Its not a groundbreaking superstar record, but that's kind of the point its an appreciation of an American music, probably played by ex-hippies who got it in the first place.

MORNING GLORY is a thoroughly enjoyable album of varied song genres sung by Chris, with his smooth as velvet voice, with a mostly bluegrass backing instrumentation. It's a cousin to DESERT ROSE, but that was an album with a more rock 'n roll backup band. Herb Pederson, Hillman's longtime singing partner, provides the glorious high harmonies. These two wonderful singers sound like they were meant to sing together. Like Don & Phil, like Gram & EmmyLou, like George & Tammy, Tim & Mollie...Normally, I would've awarded this release 4 stars, however, it is very short time-wise, thus the deduction. The label should have combined MORNING GLORY with DESERT ROSE as a twofer. At least, that's what I would have done, but I'm not a record label exec.

To the other reviewer of Morning Sky" by Chris Hillman: If you are going to review an album, at least know the name of it! It is "Morning SKY" not "Morning GLORY".
