New tunes for a crazy month:
Fresh Water was on my mind this weekend. If you click the link, you can stream the album on Bandcamp. I bought it back in 2015 when it released. “Bird’s Eye View” is my favorite track. The entire album is a treasure.
Keyboardist Ray Manzarek, who co-founded the Doors with Jim Morrison, talks through the composition of “Riders on the Storm.” The video above includes a couple of cool images of handwritten lyric sheets.
Listening to a full recording of the original is a natural chaser, as Morrison’s vocals can’t be topped.
A new single from Sandra McCracken. Her music lifts my heart.
My brother sent along this cover of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s “Carry On.” It’s great.
