A minor figure on the fringe of the rock and folk scene in 1960s Britain, Morgan made a single for Columbia in 1965, "Tomorrow I'll Be Gone"/"Ain't Got Much More to See." Produced by Joe Meek, these sides had the typical strange squashed otherworldly sound typical of Meek's creations. "Tomorrow I'll Be Gone" was (again, like many of Meek's records) a mawkish pop/rock ballad, but Morgan's folk side came out much more strongly on "Ain't Got Much More to See," a troubadour folk tune given a galloping beat and a couple of layers of acoustic guitars. Morgan was also part of the folk trio Lorel, who also included cult singer/songwriter Duncan Browne. Lorel was signed to Andrew Oldham's Immediate label around 1967 and they made some demos with Mike D'Abo of Manfred Mann producing. However, Lorel split before Browne went solo and did his 1968 Immediate album Give Me Take You.
