I had my head in books about the late 60s and early 70s when I made this. I fully recommend 'Trips' by Ellen Sander if you can get hold of a copy. She floated around the Laurel and later Topanga Canyon sets, and her book is real analysis from the inside.

'I’m With The Band' by Pamela Des Barres - talks more about the scenes and rock stars in general. In a different part of LA with Jimmy Page and his 'special' suitcase, Pamela was also a founder member of Frank Zappa’s GTOs…

Finally, Barney Hoskyn’s 'Hotel California'. Looking at a time we all now know was doomed to consume itself, Hoskyns tells the story cleanly, giving air to the dreams of dreamers - of how it could have been.

It led me to discover some beautiful music which I felt compelled to put together and share. So here it is…put your headphones on and - imagine that wherever you are is actually a veranda in Laurel Canyon late 1975, and you are flicking around the radio until you find Miss Lorelei on WKLA...



brilliant mix… great feel and mood to this.


Thank you - glad you enjoyed it!
