Morning Of The Earth Reimagined is a reworking by various artists of the soundtrack for the 1972 surf film Morning Of The Earth, released in January 2014 by Warner Music.

In 1972, Albert Falzon made a film that would forever change the way the world thought about surfing. The film was Morning Of The Earth. For many people it was the very first time they came to recognise surfing as a complete lifestyle. This recognition, coupled with mind-blowing, innovative surfing made the film a classic that has remained vital for over 40 years. Albe's portrayal of all things pure and simple influenced generations, and passed on an enduring sprit to our culture, our music, and our lifestyle.

Morning Of The Earth took a unique approach to music. For the first time, music was not treated as a background or incidental to the vision on the screen. The music was the narrator, with each track played in its entirety. The original soundtrack produced the Australian #1 single Open Up Your Heart and was the first Australian soundtrack to achieve gold sales. It was also recently included in the 100 Best Australian Albums.

Morning Of The Earth Reimagined, a tribute album featuring re-recordings of the original soundtrack has been released to celebrate 40 Years of Morning Of The Earth.

The change is contemporary surf sounds that are now more relaxed and varied, so that the epic Morning Of The Earth title track entrusted to Mick Turner is less echoey than the original, now more diverse and meandering. Bonnie 'Prince' Billy's I'll Be Alright sounds like a comfortable low tide, while Matt Corby's First Things First takes the track back to the beach bar with a slightly blues-inspired take on the original. Busby Marou's Getting Back is also well worth getting sand in your cossie for.

The original's big single Open Up Your Heart is given a lovely lightness and androgyny by Jack River, while it seems Sand Pebbles couldn't resist getting just a bit of original '70s in with Dream Chant. Also well worth it is Machine Translations' Simple Ben, just sweet and easy in its approach.

This double LP 180 gram heavyweight vinyl housed in a gatefold sleeve is pressed in Australia.
