There's a long wet thing called the Irwell running through our village and I cross a stone bridge that spans it most days. Things like that always trigger songs in my head and so sometimes I hear Strummer's rallying call to riverside living or Nick Drake's plan for lilac time but mainly I hear this from The Doors third album Waiting For The Sun.
I woke up to the news that Ray Manzarek had finally joined Jim last night and given my late teen love of the group I felt I had to post something. Maybe I should have chosen a track from Other Voices or Full Circle as Morrison always seemed to overshadow his musicians but the soft flow of Yes, The River Knows with its languid piano and Krieger's florid lead break seemed a fitting tribute...
Ray Manzarek 12.2.39 - 20.5.13
Breathe underwater 'till the end
PS. Audio taken from the 40th anniversary remastered CD whilst my vinyl is one of those cheap French issues that flooded the late Seventies / early Eighties and made buying all their output affordable. No, I can't tell the difference either...
