At age 54, Elliott Murphy has been recording albums of his original compositions regularly for 30 years, and unlike some musicians who have been at it that long (such as Neil Young, whose raucous, Crazy Horse-style guitar playing is echoed on this album's leadoff track and whose After the Gold Rush ballad "Birds" is covered under the title "Bird"), he hasn't changed much about his musical or lyrical approach in that time. The Elliott Murphy of 2003 is not very different from the Elliott Murphy of 1973. He still writes semi-autobiographical songs full of poetic imagery and literary references (The Great Gatsby and Samuel Beckett are favorites), and he still sets them to folk-rock arrangements that call to mind Bob Dylan.

The full title is "Symphony of the Damned - Re-symphonised." It is a re-recording of the band's debut album, originally released in 1990 when they were known as Morgana Lefay, printed on vinyl in only 537 copies. The last four songs are bonus tracks that were not part of the original recording. The guys decided to go back in the studio in 99 as Lefay and give it a fresh take and release it to the masses.
