LEGENDARY DAY ON THE GREEN

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-APR 22, 2019…31 YEARS AGO IT WAS A CLASSIC ‘DAY ON THE GREEN’ WITH PINK FLOYD AT THE OAKLAND COLISEUM FOR TWO NIGHTS-APRIL 22 & 23. MAN I MISS THE BILL GRAHAM “DAYS ON THE GREEN”. THESE SHOWS WERE PART OF THE ‘MOMENTARY LAPSE OF REASON’ TOUR. PINK FLOYD HADN’T TOURED SINCE 1981, AND WHEN ROGER WATERS LEFT THE GROUP IN 1985, HE BELIEVED THE GROUP WOULD NOT CONTINUE WITHOUT HIM. WATERS THREATENED LEGAL ACTION AGAINST DAVID GILMOUR AND NICK MASON, AS WELL AS ANY PROMOTER THAT PROMOTED A “PINK FLOYD” SHOW. HOWEVER, A LEGAL DEAL WAS WORKED OUT WITH WATERS AND THE TOUR WENT ON. THE FIRST SHOW IN OAKLAND AT THE COLISEUM WAS PLAYED TO A CROWD OF 78,000 PEOPLE. THE SECOND NIGHT WAS A SELLOUT WITH 90,000 FANS LOVING PINK FLOYD.

L.A. WOMAN

LAMONT’S MUSIC NOTES-APR 19, 2019...FORTY EIGHT YEARS AGO THE DOORS RELEASED THEIR 6TH STUDIO ALBUM ‘L.A. WOMAN’ AND THEIR FINAL STUDIO ALBUM TO FEATURE LEAD SINGER JIM MORRISON, WHO DIED 3 MONTHS AFTER THE ALBUM’S RELEASE. THIS WAS A GREAT ALBUM, DESPITE THEIR LONGTIME PRODUCER PAUL ROTHCHILD WALKING OUT ON THE BAND. ROTHCHILD ENDED AN EARLY LISTENING SESSION BY INSULTING THE DOOR’S MUSICAL DIRECTION AND WALKED OUT LEAVING THE GROUP WITHOUT A PRODUCER.

AS A RESULT, THE BAND CO-PRODUCED THE ALBUM WITH LONGTIME SOUND ENGINEER BRUCE BOTNICK. THE ALBUM CONTAINED THE HIT ‘LOVE HER MADLY’ WHICH PRECEDED THE ALBUMS RELEASE, AND ‘RIDERS ON THE STORM’.

IT ALSO BOASTED THE TITLE TRACK, A SONG RAY MANZAREK ONCE EXPLAINED AS:

"A song about driving madly down the LA freeway - either heading into LA or going out on the 405 up to San Francisco. You're a beatnik on the road, like Kerouac and Neal Cassady, barreling down the freeway as fast as you can go."

“Morrison recorded his vocals in the studio bathroom to get a fuller sound. He spent a lot of time in there anyway because of all the beer he drank during the sessions.”
