    The Doors: Legacy

    Listening to Disc 2 of this best of compilation - it's a good one!. I've been fighting off the urge to buy the Complete Doors box-set the last week or so and think I will just have to get it as this is such great music!

    I haven't ventured into their music much outside of my exposure to their better known pieces, but is it fair to say that the band was just as important as Jim Morrison for their musical success? I've heard that Morrison, being musically illiterate, would sing his melodies, and they had to figure out the notes and crazy harmonies implied by the notes, so in the end, it would be as much their song as his.

    Also, I think it's cool that the Ray Manzarek, the organ player, based Light My Fire on John Coltrane's version of My Favorite Things. And it's also cool that, at least when playing live, the organ player also supplied the bass part. (Okay, I think it's cool because I used to play the organ.)

    This video clip (second link), sent me by my Niece, reminded me of a 'golden oldie' as being, the most 'literally' apt soundtrack for the vid...

    Open this "soundtrack" link first, -- it is set on repeat
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQpbURSFaNU

    The vid: "Time to Dance Walk Baby!"
    In a new window, open the first link, and mute the audio...

    Let'em run :-)

    Morrison wrote the lyrics, but Manzarek and Krieger wrote most of the music. Krieger wrote Light My Fire, and Manzarek came up with the intro.

    That Legacy set covers a lot from the early albums, but is skimpy on the latter ones. Some of the older fans hate the remixed albums released in 2007, but I think Strange Days, and Morrison Hotel sound great!

    Now here is just an amazing album by Anoushka Shankar (Ravi's daughter)! It's an interesting and creative mix of Hindustani music and Spanish Flamenco. Apparently Flamenco has it's roots in India. I had never really contemplated the similarities before but after listening to this wonderful album I can hear how this could be so. I recommend listening to this at a reasonably good volume. Here is the Spotify link:

    And isn't she also quite lovely? Not that it matters to the quality of the music but I don't mind looking at photos of her!

    Some classic Tower of Power. As usually, I skipped the songs written for the girls and headed for the straight-up funk. Lenny Pickett is amazing on tenor, as is Chester Thompson on organ.

    Now on to Train's new album.
