To celebrate Mother’s Day, we are highlighting a recording from 1967 that has a special resonance for mothers everywhere. The song’s message of love and sacrifice is one that mothers embody every day, as they give their all to raise and nurture their children.

Mothers are often the first ones up in the morning, making breakfast and getting their families ready for the day ahead. They are the ones who bind their children’s hearts with love and support, even as they encourage them to spread their wings and fly …


In many ways, mothers are like “angels of the morning,” bringing light and hope to the lives of those they love. They may not always be appreciated or acknowledged for their sacrifices, but their love and devotion are an enduring legacy that will never fade away.

“Angel Of The Morning” is a song that speaks to the heart, and its lasting popularity is a testament to its ability to connect with listeners on a deep level. It is a reminder that love is a powerful force that can bring both joy and pain, and that the dawn of a new day can bring with it the hope of a brighter future.

“Angel Of The Morning” is a classic that has stood the test of time. Originally released in 1967, the song has been covered by numerous artists over the years and is most associated with the Top 10 releases by Merilee Rush and the Turnabouts and, subsequently, Juice Newton.

So as we celebrate Mother’s Day, let us take a moment to remember the “angels of the morning” in our own lives. Let us honor the love and sacrifice of our mothers and grandmothers, and all the other women who have touched our lives with their kindness and compassion.

In doing so, here’s Cameo/Parkway artist, Evie Sands and her original recording of “Angel Of The Morning,” this week’s Tom Locke moment in time.

This “Moments In Time” story is yet another example of a “golden oldie” or forgotten favorite that earned its place in the evolution of Rock & Roll.
