MORNING DEW

Written by 21-year old Canadian folkie Bonnie Dobson in 1962, "Morning Dew" was apparently inspired by the film version of Nevil Shute's apocalypse drama "On The Beach." Fred Neil released an appropriately austere version in 1964, followed by Tim Rose's drastic psych-rock/blue-eyed soul arrangment in 1966. From there, "Morning Dew" became kind of rock standard, with versions submitted by everyone from Lee Hazelwood to the Grateful Dead to Nazareth and Devo
