The Fugs Morning Morning Richard Huet Tout Seul French & English Subititles

People sometimes ask why doesn't Tuli write more songs like "Morning, Morning," and the answer comes back, he can't. One of the songwriting miracles from the Fugs Second Album on ESP-disk, 1966, it was just inspired, he doesn't know how he did it and can't do it again. The muse for "Morning, Morning" pictured in this video was Sally Eaton, actress, Wiccan priestess, the hippie witch in Jim Rado/ Gerry Ragni's 1968 musical "Hair." Tuli was in love with her when it wrote it. Richie Havens did the most famous cover of it but never got the lyrics right. They are presented here as Tuli typed them for inclusion in his yet to be published novel about the Fugs. In 1971 Tuli was in Montreal with his theatre company, The Revolting Theatre. That same year Québecois chanteur Richard Huet released his first album on Polydor. On it was "Tout Seul" a French adaptation of the Fugs' masterpiece "Morning, Morning." Tuli did not know of the existence of "Tout Seul" until he saw it mentioned on the internet in the 1990's. After quite a search, we finally found the old vinyl on Ebay and digitized the song. The pictures are of Richard Huet's first two albums. Thanks to philipchek of YouTube and Paris for assisting with the translation. Thanks also to Sylvain La frenière, Canadian rare vinyl dealer through Music Stack for quickly shipping me the record and for correcting my spelling of "fois." Show less
