A truly incredible song. From 1967! Linda Ronstadt from the hippie era! She was one of the original hippies. Later a solo artists and girlfriend of Jerry Brown. And noted cocaine user. She had several operations on her nose due to excessive cocaine use. I believe she likes girls too if I am not mistaken.
This is one of her best songs ever. LA flower power from the Summer of Love! Yep, there was a hippie movement here in LA too. You better believe it. Go ask Jim Morrison. Mostly around Hollywood, Santa Monica, Venice and around UCLA. Later around Venice, the Hollywood Hills, and especially Malibu. It wasn’t quite San Fransisco, but it wasn’t that far off either.
A lot of tie-in with the film industry of course.
Jim Morrison went to film school at UCLA, remember? My father graduated from there. My Mom spent her freshman year at UCLA. 18 years old and homesick the whole time. A mere girl. I was supposed to go there but I couldn’t pass high school Algebra 2, so I couldn’t go. My father was very disappointed.
And the music industry has always been headquartered right here in El Lay.
