Morning Better Last! is a compilation album released in September 2003.[2] It brings together three tapes recorded by David Longstreth in the period 2001 to 2002.[3] A year later they were compiled and released by States Rights Records on CD-R and as a digital download from iTunes.[4] The album features guest appearances by Hank Miller, Liz Tung and Lucy Greene.[4]

Both "After Santa Monica Boulevard" and "Dahlonegabhama" were reused for the song "Tour Along The Potomac" on The Getty Address, while "Here Comes The Summer King" is an up-tempo version of "Three Brown Finches" on The Glad Fact. In 2006, Longstreth commented on the material, explaining that the record "is like 1/40th of a whole bunch of four track recordings I made in 2002".[3]
