Mike Morgan And The Crawl – The Lights Went Out In Dallas
Format: CD
Label: Continental Record Services
Release: 2022

Release date: May 5, 2022

It’s been 15 years since my last release ‘Stronger Every Day’. Most of those 15 years I have been managing a motorcycle dealership in the Dallas area. During that time span I was playing mostly local gigs and very part time. I was ready for a break from the road and full time gigging.
We closed the shop in 2018 and it seemed like the right time to start focusing on music again. Well…timing is everything right? We all know what happened in 2020!! Gigs went away, but gave a lot more time for writing and practicing. I even learned to play the upright bass. Well…here we are. I hope you like this batch of tunes.

Mike Morgan:
This recording is dedicated to the loving memory of my sweet mother Shirley Morgan. I miss you dearly!! My partner in music and dear friend; The Great Lee McBee. My dear friend and musical inspiration – Lazy Lester.
Special thanks to:
Pamela Rhoades, Anson Funderburgh, Reo Casey, Shawn Pittman, Pappy Middleton, and Paul Osborne.
