Morgan Visconti Celebrates Mom’s 40th Anniversary of Hit Song “Those Were the Days”

40 years after the August 30, 1968, release by Mary Hopkin of the international smash hit song "Those Were the Days,"
Morgan Visconti continues his parents' legendary musical heritage. Morgan, the son of Mary Hopkin and Tony Visconti, is a
co-founderof -- and composer with -- NYC and LA-based HUMAN, one of the
world's most acclaimed original music production companies,
with clients
that include such major advertisers as Levi's, Nike, Coca-Cola, Sprite and
American Express.

Morgan has very recently produced musical tracks for the Coca-Cola
"Olympic Bird's Nest" and the American Express "Member's Project" TV spots
currently airing, as well as the tracks for a Liberty Mutual online film
for director Laurence Dunmore ("The Libertine,") and an original tune,
"Shine," for a new Pantene campaign, sung by newcomer Rosi Golan, that has
become an online sensation.

Morgan's mother, pop singer Mary Hopkin, recorded her first record,
"Those Were the Days," in 1968. The song, which was produced by Paul
McCartney and released by The Beatles' Apple record label on 8/30/68, was
Apple's first single.

Morgan's father, legendary music producer Tony Visconti, has worked
with a wide array of notable performers since launching his music career in
London, also during l968, and won a 2008 Grammy Award for producing
Anglique Kidjo's CD "Djin Djin!" which won in the "Contemporary World
Music" category. Tony produced many of David Bowie's albums, including
"Space Oddity," "The Man Who Sold the World," "Diamond Dogs," "Young
Americans" and "Heroes." In addition, Tony produced recordings for The
Moody Blues, T. Rex, Badfinger, Thin Lizzy and Adam Ant.

A Brooklyn native, Morgan has composed original music for over 400 high
profile television commercials during the course of his career. His
company, HUMAN, has just entered its 7th year, where his responsibilities
include original composition and steering the company creatively.
Additionally, Morgan collaborates with -- and produces songs for -- many
rising musical artists, such as Leah Siegal, Sam Bonner and Rosi Golan, to
name a few.
