The Neon Philharmonic: Morning Girl

Formed in 1967, The Neon Philharmonic only released two albums and a score of singles between 1969 and 1971. Only one of those charted – our Wednesday One-Hit- Wonder: “Morning Girl.” The Neon Philharmonic's only top forty hit peaked at #17 in 1969. It came from their debut album “The Moth Confesses.”

The group recorded for Warner Brothers’ short lived rebranded label: Warner/7 Arts, and a final single was issued after their break-up in 1972 by TRX Records. By 1975, the two principals, arranger Tupper Saussey and vocalist Don Gant, sold “The Neon Philharmonic” brand name and additional singles were released by musicians who had no connection to the original group.
