"Flow Overflow" was a double LP: "Flow" were what Morgan calls "spontaneous compositions" recorded in one take. On "Overflow" he overdubbed a cassette of recordings he had made when fooling around with the new (at the time) Yamaha DX7 Mark II synthesizer. He thought this cassette (which was just a series of instant improvised sketches, each inspired by the new sounds available on the DX7) was just a bunch of ideas which he would develop and re-record, but they had such a good, natural feel to them that he used parts of the actual cassette and added other instruments in his home studio. The general style of these albums: hmmm, a kind of synthesised modern spiritual chamber music.
Like "Inside Satie", the 1998 CD re-issue of this album has been beautifully remastered and re-packaged with a cover photograph by Regina Deluise.
