Rolling Stones Drop ‘Scarlet,’ Previously Unreleased 1974 Track Featuring Jimmy Page (Listen)
"The Stones rolled out details their upcoming goat's head soup box set earlier this past month, But the most exciting elements for their fans was a previously unreleased song. According with Jimmy Page that you're listening to year called Scarlet sets not coming out to a September the fourth. But this week, the band released the highly anticipated track. Song was cut in October in 1974 with Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, both handling guitar duties and traffics Rick Gretch on the base. Pete says. My recollection is that we walked in at the end of a Zeppelin session. They were just leaving and we were booked in next and I believe that Jimi decided to stay. We weren't actually cutting. It is a track was basically just a demo was to get the feel of it, but it came out well over the line up like that. You know, we better be using it. 1975 page told Rolling Stone that Rolling Stone magazine that he thought the track was supposed to be a B side of a stones record. It sounded very similar style and mood to those blonde on blonde tracks. Jimmy said. He was great. Really good. We stayed up all night when down Island Studios where Keith put some reggae guitars over one section. I just put some solos on it. It was eight in the morning and next day before he was able to do that. I remember first, jamming this song with Jimmy and Keith in Ronnie's basement student, Jang said his great session. A new edition of Goat's head soup also features previously unreleased tracks Criss cross and all the rage along with the rare demos and a complete concert, taped at a gig in Belgium in 1973. Stones originally planned on touring American football Stadium this year, But certainly that gonna happen this year anyway. During the down time, they've released a new song called Living in a Ghost Town. The first original songs. He's 2012. So the stones are at it. Interesting, Jimmy Page story. Never heard this one before. No, I like the song though. It's very Yeah, I kind of did, too. Yes, I didn't know if I love seeing old documentaries. We've been watching a lot of stuff about Laurel Canyon and like Ringo was actually really good friends with Mickey Dolenz, the drummer for the Monkeys, which was always a joke that the monkeys were created to be like the American beetles. And so it's it's I like seeing who was actually friends with whom and to see that I never knew Jimmy Page in the Stones ever had any crossover and the fact that he played on the song is really cool. Jimmy Page lives in a house across the street from Murray Gellar's old house in Sonny. And apparently, he's quite noisy in the neighbourhood,

"What greatest that they were documenting on things like sixteen millimeter that have longevity whereas like when to get into the Google home. It's now early video eighties video which end with the crappy home cameras. The stuff is shot in, and it looks like crap in. It doesn't hold up at all, so we were lucky that we had so much so many wonderful sixteen millimeter films that people just shot home movies of stuff back then so was not when when you introduced her. She does not a photographer. She was not introduced as shoot. She was not documented them when she said I think it was her own way. She said I carried a camera everywhere. You know she. She came to La as a groupie. She loved the music she read. British is a groupie. She got jobs working the lights at the troubadour in with E., and then as a result of that got to know the bands just was. You know I mean she's not an interesting life? She spent a Lotta time living in Israel and books, and so she's know had some interesting experiences. She had her camera always with her, so she started taking pictures everywhere, and then she became a bonafide photographer so mazing also on the marquee. There's the band the flying burrito brothers. Okay, so GRANDPA, and how much footage did you have them? Because I mean Graham was larger than he seemed larger than life. Very. Influential in a in the country rock scene and to the bird so I mean what what can you tell us about Graham and the flying Burrito I mean. We didn't have too much of him specifically for this I. Don't know that a lot of footage exists. You know it wasn't all so Graham specific I mean. Some of my favorite footage. This in Laurel Canyon Product is footage of him. When Graham decides to go, get those rhinestone suits down. For nudie seats. Yeah, they're so amazing. Amazing those photographs and we have some footage of that which was cool I. Don't know how much stuff exists. Gun is a lot of photographs of Graham you know, and we use a different clip of Graham in the breeder brothers in the eagles film, but yeah I don't know. How much more exists. We didn't. We didn't have a ton of stuff up mostly what we have been photographs. Apparently Graham hung out with Keith Richards a lot. Asli. Yes, yeah, yeah. They were. They were best friends which. I hope I hope there's footage of them hanging out together somewhere. Again their photographs I. Don't know about footage. Yeah must be somewhere blast last person that we. mentioned. That was kind of fun to see is Alice Cooper. He's all over the Laurel Canyon Seen Yeah. Yeah Great I didn't because I think of him as a metal guy but Zappa took him under his wing. I didn't even know Alice. Cooper was Laurel. Canyon seen I didn't know he'd lived there. I didn't know he was connected with Zappa in that way when I interviewed him, he told me that story showing up at ZAPPA's house at seven. Am I guess? That especially back, then shown seventy how? Exactly, that's how he was doing. Serious about making are wanting to make a go of it. Analysis. They were so nervous. They came in their chrome pants. Anyway. Yeah, it seemed like for example was kind of like Mama Cass. He was kind of nurturing musician as well as was yeah people into his fold, and if he liked it, or even if he didn't get it, he he wanted to be a part of the of their seen or try to understand. Mark Bauman of the turtles went onto to. Play with ZAPPA, After the turtles disbanded so there. There's a lot of of people floating in and out of each other's. Of lives musically and otherwise in that whole era. Very incestuous. What was there was a lot of an exposition scene where there was A. Convertible driving in Laurel Canyon. What was that? Did you recreate that or was that something? That's you found. We Chew re-creations with. These with well, we did both helicopter and on the ground with those cars. We had the green car part one red convertible in part two. We just wanted to. Because you know car. Driving in those canyons was such part of their lives and songs on the radio. It was just a device to. Be Literally driving around in the canyons. The we shot that stuff. We also shot a lot of material and super eight and some of it. You probably can't even tell whether was. Old Archival footage or recently shot because we intentionally shot on super eight and kinda shaky. Made. It looked like it was organic from the time of very effective because it took. To that was great. Did they touch on the radio at all I mean we? We're kind of both of Holly Radio Background I. Don't know if they mentioned like being heard on cage, J or Kfi Wbz Baas radio or the importance of radio. Yeah. Yeah, well Jim plays a role in part to. He actually starts off. Yeah so. So the radio comes in in a bigger way in part to end, but also what was happening. All, everything, not just the music on the radio. The world is through seeping in through radio television at started. You know it's landing in the living rooms in these places We Watch Kent State Happen from a House Canyon that we recreate it going into recreating something. But what did you do to recreate that the atmosphere? Well, we we built this set actually at our director photography. Sam Painters House out on his balcony, and we I mean it was pretty elaborate, but we gotta chair in an old television set, and we did. We did it as a time lapse thing, so the city behind was getting darker and darker and darker as the night goes on. Yeah, I mean we just. PROPS IN Set Design all that and it was. That shot took a very long time to get. It was like I think about I. Don't know five hours for that one shot Did, you grow up using super eight. I mean like your I. I'm sure you've made some student. Films was at Super Eight. What was your your your going? Super Eight Steph I was more of a photographer when I was a kid. That's not I did shoot super eight, but you know when I was a kid. It was expensive to get it processed to. Show it to and everything, so I took I started as I was actually photographing from time, it was like nine years old. When I was twelve, I was actually getting paid to do portraits. So that's that was my answer. I always wanted to be journalists reading National Geographic from very young age. Turned into a documentary so yet. Logical transition. Absolutely? We love the sea. We Love the Laurel Canyon scene and someone who could really bring it together I. Mean there's been a lot of movies or documentaries trying to kind of encapsulate what exactly happened and you seem to have accomplished that it's really it's A. It's a wonderful viewing, and it's a it's available and epochs right now. And it will be beyond there for awhile. I assume, and then probably I don't know things come out! You. Can get like blue DVD's and not. Coming up a lot about this I don't think that they've thought it through yet. There's a rights issue which may be Because the music rights I don't think they paid for D. release. So. That might have visited all that in order to release that went, but there's no answer for right now, but it will. It's GonNa. Live on ethics for quite a while. Imagine so people can catch, and if they don't have ethics aren't check it out. They can do a seven day. Free trials being offered. Excellent. Perfect, thank you again, Alison! This was this was a joy and we look for all, thank. You. Guys. Thank you so much about? Well well, that was great fun. Thank you so much to Alison Ellwood the director of the Documentary Laurel.

"It's we know what's coming up. Is the the Manson murders and all that going on? How do you think that affected the music of Laurel Canyon? Well I think. I mean there was always a dark even in the first half I part with. The story seems a little bit lighter. They're still a darkness. undertones there. The civil rights movement is happening and you know. Violent things going on the Vietnam is raging in these guys are draft eligible, and if there's always this underpinning darkness there, but I think in part to what happens is darkness becomes immediately connected to the music scene directly with ultimate with the deaths of ultimate. And the hells, angels being there and then Manson, murders and Manson was tied into the music. Industry was a wannabe rock and roll star. Who got these crazy people to follow him so? I think that the darkness was directly from the music connected to the music. I think change things a bitch, and also these artists growing up and maturing and becoming aware. And conscious of the world around them in a in a much bigger way. I mean it's funny when you think about for what it's worth being. Everyone thinks it's about the Vietnam War was written about these kids who couldn't get into this club protested you know. It's you know the demeaning. It's been signed attributed to after what? Other than was originally out it's it's really cool so I think the music. Shifted a bit, but there's still there's a lot of lightness in part two. Also, it's not all doom and gloom by any stretch of the events nation. It's just you know reality you know reality strikes. These artists are getting older. Plus frankly the drugs changed. It went from those by. which had a profound impact on everyone and it was a bad impact. It was you know. It it was dark drug. Talked to David Crosby a lot about that little bit. Lebanon talked. About it, I mean one of my first questions. Everyone was what Laurel Canyon smell like, and they all said pot. And then another question. was you know what happened when it changed when the drug shifted some pots, Kokin seventies and they all were like. Yeah it just it took the life out of it just sucked the life out of something that was so beautiful before. Did you talk to David Geffen wasn't I. Don't remember Okay Yep. I guess that was another part of all sudden. These these managers like Elliot Robert Glad you got him to. That's wonderful. That's he's he's. We did the last interview with him before he died. Yeah, but but yeah. It's wonderful that you were able to get that. But yeah, suddenly I think a lot of these businessmen started to realize. Hey, we can make a lot of money off this, and that's I think that change is seen as well as that. Was that something that you gathered as well? Yeah, definitely, and I mean a Elliott and. David at least certainly in the beginning lan, especially Elliott was really good guy, and had an David, was to and had the best. Interests of their artists was foremost, but they also certainly realized they could make money and others came in after them in really realized. I could make money and that's also when it shifted. These and these bands you know. These artists went from playing at the Troubadour, four, one another to and supporting one another. To playing, you know stadiums in Colossians and. Making huge amounts of money into the scene. Just sort of has slowly. Faded out, but they're still I mean. Did you? You find? They're still a scene in Laurel. Canyon, there's a lot of contemporary artists that are are still that still play there. I mean you drive through Canyon I still once in a while, I'll see someone at the country store playing guitar just on the corner. Yeah. It's still very healthy scene. Yeah no absolutely and what's been interesting, and Kobe is the Laurel Canyon Society. They've been doing where everyone plays music out their. Doors and windows, so the music's now wafting out a across the canyon again, which is really cool cool. We didn't even talk about love a little bit the band. What Amazing Band But they kind of. Handed the baton off to the doors. Because they. They were not happy. Or why don't you tell the story of love or what? I did not know this at some. People that effort destroyed before, but I didn't know it before. It's just amazing. It's the. Love had signed with Elektra. They were there only rock band at that point and they weren't happy with electro. Electro wasn't in their minds promoting them enough. So and they got another offer. That was a really good offer, but electro wouldn't let them out of their contract, so Johnny Arthur decided well okay. Let's get them to sign the doors, and then they'll let us out of our contracts and we'll go on and sign. Much better company for us, and so of course they beg Holtzman to go see Jim and the doors play, and in the film you only goes twice in reality. He went three times both times for the first two times. He went he just like I. Don't get it. tagging all over the stage, and he just didn't the third time he was on fire, and he's like Oh. My God they signed him that night, and then all the money that they would at would presumably spent on promoting love got switched to the doors and love of got left in the dust. is a sad story, but it's an amazing one. They didn't have anything in writing. That said that they could be. Better can terminate their contracts if a if the doors were signed to the label no now. Now they pushed the doors on a million nate at taking over. Your love. Continue to make mazing music but I don't think that they were or are as known as they certainly should. Yeah I. Agree and I I didn't even think about it at the time, but you. You mentioned the film that. When they toured the south, they they were not allowed to play I mean that's insane. They were allowed to play fake a segregated audiences which they refused to. Always hard for us to imagine. Well, is it you know? Gary. It's like you'd think we should be so much further alone and look at where we are. I guess knowing that is apropos now right now without knowing the story of Love, which I didn't know either. Yeah, yeah, Johnny was lovely h optimum. That's great. Did you. In his eye to. Did you have a lot of Arthur Lee footage or what or the to remain. There's some of that footage of love at home. Movie step is so wonderful of them running around in by slick regularly around the cars driving. There's some really fun footage wasn't. Them though. It wasn't obviously. We tell their stories, but still. That's amazing. What do you think that was? Guess the photographers mentioned that they didn't know what they were that they were filming. History or you know. There's a lot of there are a lot of cameras around there. There's more footage than you expect is that? was I mean it seemed like a lot of people had cameras that wasn't like phones, but but there were still people were documenting this this like..

"There. And Stephen Stills almost was one in the monkey suit. He went on auditions and they said well. Your tooth doesn't really work. He had snuggle tooth. He said well. Let me send my roommate in the see you guys. That was Peter Tork. Well it's my natural inheritance. So, what was your field trip like? When you went to doing your research and you probably came to Laurel. Canyon went to the Troubadour Yeah. I mean we started I. Guess Probably Close to three years ago. I mean I was familiar with the Kanye. Because I lived in La for time so I had been there quite a bit and i. just always, it's so beautiful. I wanted to live there. At one point. It was just way too expensive Which is funny. Sorry I did it. It's so funny. You say it's expensive because the point that was made in the film, a couple of times by the musicians. How cheap it west to live there right like the J. thought. Gets discovered. No longer no longer cheap to be there. So I had to reread bunch of stuff that I read years ago. obviously talking to Henry going through all of his photographs and meeting read through her staff. You know when we spend a lot of time. Driving around the Canyon and Ryan are suffering our producer, did he? He was in the helicopter. We did all of our areas. Those are not drone shots were helicopter shots and so. So we learned you know we had learned a lot about the topography and geography up there, so he you know. We knew specifically what he was going to be trying to get a little capillaries, offshoots and everything. Yeah, I mean it's just. It's a beautiful lovely place in you know it's very scary. Driving there by director of photography San Painter like to drive and scare me to. Shooting It's it's finds you do at the field trip like Dave said but. Living Yet living up there, you know up some of the streets, yeah! There's some pretty scary road. Are they still there. Some of these homes I know you know like I. Think Morrison's home was burned down. What's what remains of? As houses, definitely still there, and in fact I think she's still owns it actually. I think she runs it out I. Don't know if anybody. I mean I'm sure some of the specific ones are still there. I can't think of any offhand. I think Jim's place is. I don't know earned down on the corner. It's their. Streets is like there's. Says Love St Street. Yeah, another photographer! Is Graham Nash. Did you get? Did you get any access to his photos, or yes, and his does. There's some of the photos of Japanese Joni are grams, and they're just stunning is he's actually good photography? On Yeah so we definitely use some of his graphs. So you say you worked with Henry on the eagles documentary, he's really good on screen. Yeah, he's a character, yeah! That when you were using it Y-, did you know that? We filmed it. We actually filmed in the same location. We'd slightly different shot at. You can see from that location. That is literally what it looks like you. There is a path this narrow walk through, and it is piled high everywhere photographs books. Berry, challenging environment just shooting, but no I've been there before. And I knew about all the slides in the drawers, behind his desk, and his life oxes there, and that's that's where he works at his fat. But you don't know someone who isn't used to being in front of the count. You know who is I. Mean I know. He was in a musician, but not necessarily being photographer being used to being in front of the camera. Will we enter? A in the eagles, sunshine new a good on camera guy, I think he's I, mean. There's been a film about him, too. I mean I think he's done a fair share of of media and and he's I mean he's just a very comfortable, Saul. You know he's gone on skin and he's very genuine. And I. Don't think he's intimidated by cameras or anything and like I. said I think he's done his fair share of. I should recommend holly. You need to go to the Morrison Hotel Gallery. That's That's an on the sunset strip. It's all of Henry's photos and it's really great. There's One New York to as well. Have you ever been to the troubadour? Yeah, and what are your? What do you like about your impressions there? Who Have you seen performed there? Well actually the only. Filming, with on the Eagles on, so Joe Walsh was. That's. Not Me is just it's a lovely. It's a lovely venue Yeah, I mean I haven't really gone too many shows. They're actually so, but. I haven't lived there in a very long time. So where did you live when you were in La in Venice, Oh okay. We're JIM or Jimmy. Ray Lived Yep. All right let's. Let's Talk Linda because I love Linda since we've only seen part one, was she? Did you get her an interview? Okay, how she? How's she doing what? You now first of all, how is she? She I mean. We interviewed her over. You're trying a year ago now. And, she you know she was doing well then. She's just such a lovely person to be around. She's just such a great storyteller and so smart and so funny. You know her health obviously is not great, but you know she seems to be doing are alright I. Haven't seen her in a while, but She was lovely to interview and thinks she's. She's a big part of our tube so. Actually it seems like Linda was support of the male musicians like she s. What is what is? How did she did? She Find Glenn and Don or where I can't remember the. Can you explain the story of how they become? A She just happened to be at the troubadour one night and Don Henley was playing in his band prior to the eagles, and she heard him drumming, and he was playing silver threads and golden needles, and playing it in exactly the way she likes it to be played, so she's like Oh my God. We've gotta get him. And then Glenn she knew from hanging out at the Troubadour, and she disliked him, so she just ask them to come separately to come join her play, play back up for her, and they did, and then on the road with her. They kind of decided that they wanted to be in a band together, and she was incredibly supportive of that. In fact, she and John Boylan recommended Randy Meisner and Bernie Leaden to them, and that's how the eagles formed. I've also heard that it's not the eagles. It's just eagles. Can you go? Yeah, it is just eagles. Those everyone it's history of the Eagles and they wanted that title. It's inconsistent. Own Interesting history of vehicles. David I have been arguing about this for a while. Now they would say not that eagles. That's what they would say but. Reveals then. Play exactly you can't go back now, know. At the end of part one you kind of..

"Welcome back. To what difference does it make the podcast? We are talking with Alison Ellwood. Let's get back into it. Did you get Neil Young? Joni. Did we. We certainly reached out to the multiple times. They're notorious for not wanting to do these things. We also reached out to carole. King and James Taylor which we would have loved to included them, and you know unfortunately again. They just don't don't readily. Do these things so I? You know it's too bad. They're not in this but there were thankfully a lot of archival interviews with Joanie and meal, so we were able to tell their story without having Jentzsch without even though we weren't able to interview them. Have you ever talked with the before? Now you've never had the CIA. Okay because I was going to. Who's WHO's more ornery I was is. I feel like. That was probably. The hardest to pin down. What what were your impressions of him? Well I knew quite well obviously from the eagles film. And he one of the last interviews to come in and he agreed really at the eleventh hour. I sort of assumed he wasn't gonNA. Do it and and he was really couldn't. He was very appreciative of the story being tall, and he told some other great stories that we hadn't heard before so us great, he just you know it was reluctant I guess for two, but he came in at the end, and he said some lovely things, so it was great. That's. Seems like more of a serious guy. Not not I mean ornery when ordinary. When when poked but I think he's just too serious in Nealon, what what one of the things that you see us American bandstand footage? Young which I thought was so great, because I did not watch it back then so I had never seen that in it. Just a prize me to see them on. It was buffalo, Springfield. On American bandstand. Accelerated the origins of how the band got started. Got! That was great. That was really fun to see. Now I have not had the opportunity to speak with him over which is too bad, but. Maybe one day. I actually I was wondering. Just back to the eagles documentary I think they were all filmed separately. None of them were together. Right wasn't that. That was the purpose of like to get everyone's. Story and see if it matched up or what their? My favorite docket music documentaries ever the. Is that the? Thank you. Day Hugh knowing we were trying to get them to to. Cooperate or not on, tell different versions of stories or anything. We did do an interview with down in Glen. Together, but we ended up not using it in the end. But not just I. mean you know it's it's it's it's. It's hard to interview more than one person at a time honestly. And we wanted to get their individual stories in fact on that film. When When Joe Walsh who who had interviewed when he, he came to the office, he saw the film and after he saw. The film is like Shit. I didn't know we could be that open and honest. Again. How much better did he get? You you just a little bit more detail in some of the some of the gnarly or parts of the story. was just a little more forthcoming, and so we use both of the interviews. They were both great. What is your secret to do? You just let them people talk or. How do you get a good interview out of out of any out of any person as someone WHO's interviewing people? Do. Do your research, so you know what you're talking about is critical as you now. have. A conversation in the more a conversation. It feels like more open. People are willing to be So yeah I mean on that one on eagles. Interviewed People Multiple Times Don Glenn in particular I just like it to be conversational, and and and make people feel relaxed. They can feel relaxed. usually get. You can have a nice conversation. They'll say honest things and they know that we're going. You know it's also say the beginning. We're not sugar coating anything, but we're also not trying to be salacious year, so we just WanNa tell him on his story. And if you're honest, I'll be honest. Every Laurel Canyon documentary. I've seen there's there's been a number of them. They all talk about Mickey Owens and his super eight film. Did you get? Did you get access to to that sportage? Was An. Exists still. Mickey's holding on to it tightly when actually when I was at a retail house, she has all these boxes of stuff in I found, it was actually sixteen millimeter. He was shooting and I found this real of sixteen millimeter real to real thing I said what is this? She's like you know I. Have No idea of. Oh my God. It's Mickey Golan's footage. So we went into the lab in. It was editing like Ciller or something I. Don't know it was nothing. I don't know the answer if Mickey has it. He's holding tight to it. Great footage of them of the of all of them. You only great footage fantasy and I didn't I hadn't realized. What an integral part of the scene they were I know I didn't know that either. That was an in fact. The first day of shooting on the project with Henry and Peter Tork died that day. That phone. Call that happened that. You were filming and And! We knew at that moment that we would that somehow we would integrate them into the story but they really were extremely connected. It's crazy. Because you don't think of them that way that he say. Yeah. So! He was more of a Hartford than I realized. Stephen Stills, Roommates Stephen. Stills on one of the monkees I didn't know that. But working for the best. Yeah, it was kind of meant to be people. Even that up exactly when they were auditioning for players for the monkees, every musician went down.

"Street that's one where I had the music and just came up with those words. Is Girlfriend Pam had just moved into that place above the country store. She has a house and Garden I would like to see what happens. How There's a store where the creatures meet. That is the gaining country store. The heart of Laurel Canyon. Did you have more footage of the Joni Mitchell. Michelle is the only artists used on unscreened currently. That's actually a pretty long time ago. That that was shot, I was shot probably thirty years ago. Wow I thought it was more current than it not. But that's one of those scenes was one of my favorite parts where they ask. Who who are you and she stops for like maybe ten seconds and goes really deep into. Who is Joni Mitchell? When when actually they just want her name but that I guess that's insight into Johnny's thinking, right? I think it says everything about her like she. Goes to the deepest place that was one of the first things I remember. I was sitting with my editor going through that interview, and when that moment came up I'm like play that again and we played it again, I said. That's how we're starting this whole series. And obviously we found a place for it, but it's not. It goes on for forty seconds. And we let her to sit. I don't know. Only seconds to you. I know I got immersed in the to. It's just. It's crazy I, love it. Let's talk about the Laurel. Canyon seen in these parties and just kind of get together I guess the the hub seemed to be where Mama Cass Elliot lived. Yeah. That's this. Was this a weekly occurrence, do you? Did you hear what how often these everyone got together and I? Think it happened. I don't think it was ever planned. It happened quite frequently and I think that house was probably always people revolving out. I don't think the parties were ever planned. There I'm sure somewhere but I think it was during spontaneous. People would just show I think that was the gathering place. but people went really from house to house. The doors weren't locked. People walk into. Hey, look working on. You know it was a very. Special Open Time. Is that what you gathered from Mama? CASS, I mean I guess that's how she got her name that she really wanted to create. This environment is at Unfortunately, I've never met her of course. Everything I've heard about her. She was so warm and embracing and an encouraging and very nurturing of of everyone around her, and everyone was drawn to her, and seems like a lot of these musicians are at a point in. Of current interviews, but I think a lot of people. Especially I'm guessing David Crosby really wants to get this story straight or Kim I mean I think. He acknowledges that he was an asshole back in the day. And now he I think he had his own documentary. Remember my name. And I think I think he wants to get his story out there if someone asked me about, why didn't they try to make David? Crosby, look more like an asphalt on like well. You know I, think that I don't remember whether it's Roger or Chris Hillman. That says you know. The birds were more like not so much a band of brothers, but more like a pirate about. Sums it up. I think that I mean I can't speak for their motivation, but why they wanna tell the stories now I I suppose. SURE THEY WANNA get the story straight Jackson when I interview Jackson, he was a little bit combative. He's like it was. All the law Kanye step. It's just a myth, just a place. And then at the end of the interview, he said well good like it's an important story to tell him well. It's all a myth anyway. Let him have that same the film, so he was happy about that I. Think wonder if he was just being humble, or he really knew how special it was I. Don't know I I don't think Jackson. Says anything he doesn't mean..

"How did making that documentary or any other music kind of cultural related documentaries informed the way that you wanted Laurel Canyon to look and feel I guess the main thing that I can we always knew that we didn't WANNA cut too much older rockstars at this point in their in their lives we wanted to be keep it in that moment because it takes you out of the sixty you out of that moment you know then you know not that they're they're still many of them are really good-looking articulate and sharpen all of that it's just it takes you out Jarrett and we just we didn't want that in this I've done I just did a film about the go-goes As well which is about going to be released soon. And and that's like the whole punk scene of you know late seventies early eighties and you know we did want to go on camera because the girls are still totally. Not Dead Gorgeous. And they're such great storytellers that it doesn't take you out day or their characters are part of their story so each project is different But because there were so many artists in Laurel Canyon we thought that by keeping it in Laurel Canyon leaving. That was the way to actually make everyone kind of equal in a way that that you know being that you just stay there for everyone. I did catch myself a couple of times saying wow. This is great because sometimes you know you get new documentary and it just doesn't. You're not immersed in it but this absolutely hit that right on the head or reshot a lot You know because a lot of recreation that we shot a lot of them on super eight intentional. Oh let's cool right. I don't necessarily know whether it's archive or recreation. And some stuff. We did intentionally super stylized so you know it's recreation like some of those cityscapes and the time lapse and all that but a lot of the super eight is meant to just sort of blend in with the other super eight footage from that time. So how important were the birds for setting the tone for the whole Los Angeles in? Oh I think they were critical. I mean I think that was a sound that people were super excited about and then other artists who had known them and ran into them on the east coast thing. But wait a minute if these guys are GonNa make it so we let's get out there. I think that they were the original.

"Alison ellwood thank you very much for joining us on the Rhino podcast anchor. Having you have a new documentary about the greatest music in the world out of all the documentaries I've seen on Laurel Canyon. This is absolutely my favorite. And I think it's because it's told from the point of view of the musicians themselves first off these photographs. Of course we've seen a bunch of them but there are a bunch of photographs in here including some early photos of the birds that are just absolutely magnificent. That must have been a Herculean task in and of itself to source these photos. Well luckily for us. We have been friends with Henry dilkes for quite some time. He worked with us on the Eagles dot culinary several years ago and we've stayed in touch and his. He photographed everybody so having his sources that he had were unbelievable and then we reached out to other sources as well and then of course we had Wild who was our our to documentarian who are the only people who appear in on camera contemporary interviews. Right that I wanted to talk about that too. And it's interesting that it's it's so heavy with photographs beautiful photographs and then the only two people that you have contemporary art photographers. So I loved that. That was always the plan. We wanted it to be an experiential film that you've you go into that time and you stay not time but it seemed like it made sense to have our to documentarian be able to take us out and give us a little context because they were the ones documenting it and they had that perspective is documentarian that I think enabled them to step that whereas the artist you just stay in that time zone you never come out of it and that was always the intention going into. It was to make it like that which was challenging. But I think we pulled it off as I was watching it. I just had to remember that I was watching it to review it. I just got sucked in as a fan and really with found myself immersed in it. It was wonderful great experience. Yeah the music is extraordinary. What I've so much and part of what was so wonderful about my process of discovery. Because I know a lot about this time in this music but was how they have are interwoven with one another. Those connections were so beautiful. I thought in terms of how they learn from one another took from one another gave to one another it was like a petri dish very collaborative versus competitive. I think now it tends to be a little more. People are more protective and especially if they're on their way up they don't want to give away something that would put them further behind the eight ball so to speak. Yeah well this is. It was back then it was. I think there's a certain knife table which do that. It was much more about the art and the music and less about the business in a lot of those folks didn't know much about the business end of it and as a result some of them got ripped off by the business. End of it So it was sort of an innocent stat that fed that spirit which was so lovely with it also why. I don't think it could ever happening again. Which is sad right but at the same time concurrently. You had a a scene in the northern part of the state up in San Francisco. You must have thought about this. How do you compare and contrast those two scenes in they? They're very different scenes. The San Francisco scene kind of looked down on the scene for quite some time. Arid thought they were scruffy and not not as together and so that sort of was funny but in the end we just. They're very unique scenes and we. We really just wanted to stay. Placed in the Los Angeles seen so far from San Francisco thing was a whole other thing but they really did for the most part looked down on the L. A. Artists. At least I think they thought maybe more commercial. Yeah maybe they got unprinted. The southern California sound which is sort of silly because all of them sound totally different from one another. You know there really. Isn't that southern California sound? But they got lumped into that and I think the northerners kind of rejected that being pigeonholed in that way the Manson killings before. And after that happened. How did that change the Canyon was it? Was it just kind of a passing season of darkness or did it change it permanently? The undertones of it changed permanently? Went from being this very open place. Where literally doors were unlocked and people could come in and out where people started locking doors and then the other thing is society started looking at hippies rather than being these harmless sort of lost souls. Hippies were looked upon by society now is potentially being dangerous so it changed the perception of society on these guys at changed the perception of one another and it could be so close some within our community and with such close ties because you know Manson was trying to you know he was a wannabe rock and roller right and wasn't good and was promised things that didn't end up happening and you know. Got All these people on these crazy drugs and went went nuts. I think it was the beginning of this of darker undertone. That kind of carried through to the end. Altamont was part of that too. Yeah kind of the northern bookend. Yeah for sure and kind of right around the same time. You're not too far apart. Actually the murders happened and then ultimately happened and then they realized Manson was involved in the film we we have ultimately I in the Manson murders that it in actuality they were kind of overlapped. What would you say? The sweet spot for Laurel Canyon was and when would you actually put a button on it and say it was done this time? Basically covers the from essentially sixty five to seventy five and I think that that decade is the the right decade for that era. I mean I think it was a little bit slow getting going and then once all those artists started flooding from the East Coast to Los Angeles and specifically to Laurel Canyon and the troubadour. Of course being the anchor for all of that movement. You know obviously in the earlier years that was you know absolutely ground zero of that of the moment and I think that as other people came in that they sort of came in and found the scene that had been established and tried to carry it on but then the second wave of artists. Don't know that they were. They were more ambitious per se. But they've learned more about the music industry and they came with goals in mind lengthy eagles specifically amine. Glenn wanted to be rock-n-roll star being a rock and roll band. That was successful and that ethos I don't think had been part of the earlier in as as dominantly as it was with them. So it changed a little bit and and people started making money to and of course that always impacts so like midway through in the early seventies. The money starts being made and that and that changes things too. Yeah that's interesting and you also had this change with not only artists becoming more aware of the business side or being more a career and success driven. But then you also had people like Elliot Roberts and David Geffen that were hanging out with the musicians and were friends with them but then took that same approach but applied it to the business side of things. And I think that you had kind of infiltration in the business scene of the people from the Canyon at that point. Yeah I mean well to be honest. The Canyon artists particularly lucky. That people like Elliot Roberts is especially who is just was until the very end. We actually did the very last interview with him before he passed. Which Oh wow which was And we dedicate the films to him. And again he was someone that we'd been close with since eagles project as well so it was a great loss to our film community. Who Knew Him and respected him obviously to Laurel Canyon and that whole music scene. It was a tremendous loss but they were so lucky to have had.

"Life to experience. It's a beautiful place in. I had my moment with Laurel Canyon one of my first times going to La. I was at the concrete foundations forum. It was very early in the morning and I was taking a cab ride from the hotel where the party was all night. Back to my hotel and shit you not coming over the hill all my way down towards La Brea. Freefalling comes on the radio as I'm driving out of the hills listening to a brand new song too and it just hit me rock and roll in real life intersecting right there in that moment my first time coming down Mohallah. Yeah because the hotel was over in universal city and you had to come over Mulholland to get down to where I was and I know it's real personal crap but that's longtime ago. Now that I think about it but the lure of the canyons those Hollywood hills those Hollywood nights that Bob Seger views. What he was seeing feeling is the ECO. The ECO in the canyon is that sixties feel into the seventies. And if you follow the film you see the characters continued to be introduced crosby stills and Nash and young are all in there throughout the whole movie. You get down to the end and you're starting to get to the point when they stopped telling the story where it's going to be ceus in next and then why and you see why partially at least right. It was in the studio plan a little bit and at the end of the movie. There's Neil laying down the solo on the title music for the ending. Just cranking it in Neil tone. Yes and Graham. Nash had maybe one of the other really exceptional quotes of the many out. There you just basically he just said music can change the world and he was right and the thing was he said it with conviction. I really believe that. And he's not given up on that. I noticed that through the years. That's the main tone he wants to set for his time here. Unity Love Harmony and music can make you feel things that can help to change the world in a better way. Just gotTa let those messages in some people just hear that pretty notes. It's much more than the pretty notes. Yes but it's definitely the pretty notes as well my deal. Marcus I would love to see a tour of all these musicians doing this coming philly kind of the way Day The tour is well because trusting. Dave Grohl do the big show in New York City if they go out documentary but it would be fun to see Jacob. Bring everybody out and do that if they go out. Go tour did they would come to Philly. Right would love to see this. I Dunno Yona was exceptional and it was just such great chemistry back. It gave me a whole new look at back in his talent and his genius which is so quirky and so unique that God he was so marvelous in this as well in chemistry between all of them doing the Mamas and Papas was really fun to see. Schilling really was the sound of. It was really amazing much different but still true.

"Tom was very open about the influence from that time period on his music and hearing the birds for the first time and being like what did they. Call it. The The folk rock special. The twelve string rickenbacker because it could bring so much life to folk music and make it folk rock Roger mcguigan was talking about was the cross pollination that was going on and you had you know that whole thing with the birds and you also had the beach. Boys and the Mamas in the pop into Beatles were into this too. They came in and out they break. They wanted to know what was going on up there. Ringo had some very interesting things to say about psychedelics. And his time spent there and the Canyon and McGowan had some things to say about the joint. Rolling Butler is well from the Rolling Stones House. And you know I'm a lot of good stories in there have to watch to get it all while we mentioned cries. We mentioned stills. Nash was there too and I think he arrived into the middle is realized he was with Joni Mitchell and our house was written about Laurel Canyon Lady The Canyon and she still holds court by the way so the birds move in there and at that point. Johnny was still a Kid Canada. You know working her way through the cross pollination between the Beatles and the byrds is pretty incredible. Because it wasn't as publicized. Remember it being a story but it was pretty early on. The Beatles loved the birds and the birds love the Beatles now in nature the birds would eat the Beatles but in this case it was a mutual admiration thing and it led to cross pollination and cross cycle zealous Asian as NASA and speaking of which. John Sebastian POPs up in the film. Shocker and he's in New York and he's talking about Getting to know and meeting Gwen and talking about how Gwen was complaining. That he couldn't get anybody to pay attention to his folk rock style that he wanted to do in New York Club scene in New York. And then how he travelled to L. A. and went to troubadour and got pretty much the same response and that's where folk music at large was just before the birds were talking about the progenitor of folk music from the fifties forward into the sixties and the list is long okay but it's a different thing. Now this is something that we discussed and this is one of our little sidebars. We have here on the podcast while we were watching this. We both realized that birds. Coming along and taking dylan songs and making them into. Am radio hits? Which crosby said was putting poetry on the radio did that. All HELP INFLUENCE DYLAN TO GO electric in sixty five newport. Absolutely because somebody said in here. It was the day that John. Sebastian met mcguigan. He played electric full key. Version of I WANNA hold your hand opening for hoyt accident and the people were pissed they did not like this electric folk sound that mcguigan and his cats were doing so the birds formed. And then Bob heard the birds play Mr Tambourine. Man With the electric twelve string rickenbacker and then all of a sudden by win on a light went on with Bob Dylan and they were the powerful band. Everybody wanted to be in a lot of ways and the things that we learned during this movie. We mentioned the story about George. Harrison's stealing or just taking the twelve string rickenbacker from John Lennon just by chance story. If you go watch and you get the whole story would just talking about it because it's one of those things where we don't sit here and talk about movies very much about documentaries very much. This thing has so much stuff in it. It has so much of an impact on selling stories. Every minute is filled with information. That's going to make you say exactly I. Seriously got writer's cramp cream was driven by pet. Sounds according to Eric Clapton. And then pet sounds is why we have sergeant pepper. Rubber sole is why we have pet sounds and the mamas and the Papas new. The birds couldn't believe that they got on the radio and the birds got on the radio so we can get on the radio and the birds even admitted that they were bad and they had to practice and practice and practice and they thought that that was part of the challenge in the excitement of doing what they were doing it was. Oh my God every minute seriously is insane which brings us around to Michelle Phillips because you mentioned her comments about the birds right. The thing was she was rate. How her partner is saucy and honest. It's the sixties version of rumors explained with the Mamas. And the Papas was a rumor situation. Makeup some breakup and everything else that was going on. And she's totally frank about it and I really loved that love. Cnn but also loves seeing Lou Adler and her going to the studio where they sang Monday Monday. And all those great songs looking at that and get goosebumps just thinking about brought me back to my childhood right away bone and it was Michelle. Who brought up the fact that in one of her visits to Brian Wilson's house. Who was there in the Canyon? When she walked in the living room was filled with nothing but sand. Everything was taken out. There was nothing but sand and the grand piano and she talks to ply his wife. Like hey what's going on here in the white goes crazy right. But he's writing. Some great songs though songs became pet sounds. I never knew that that happened. In that was the atmospheric create Brian's and he comes into the studio with the guys tells them they're in the wrong key start straightening everything out being Bryant. And you see it was the leader of that man. Without Paul. No doubt no doubt and when he went to his room because they're talking about the song in my room and the film when he went to his room. It was really hard times for the creative aspects of the beach. Boys which we'll talk about all this is happening in Laurel Canyon and the impact on all of the music that we hear today.

David Crosby, Laurel Canyon And Cameron Crowe discussed on Popcorn with Peter Travers
"This popcorn where I tell you what's happening at the movies and there's a movie now called David Crosby remember. My name like that was ever an issue really only for me that I don't think that is the whole power behind. This movie is my friend Cameron Crowe here who basically isn't the director but he is the producer and he did you see the back of his head in this movie a lot. You know asking this guy questions and I want to really find out the abuse that you were handed by him to really happen. We see a little of it but really there had been born and himself. David the crisis was thrilled to have you here. Things like this is really great leaving. We're both honored to be here. We wanted all that honor has now disappear. Don't does the biggest pain in the ass in the making not me I am probably I have a p._H._d.. In pain in the ass I think you certainly give yourself one. I did give them some tough. You know because that's kind of my nature. I'm a little feisty you know but I don't think anybody really was a pain in the ass and making the film A._J.. was persistent. He's really determined guy and he really will get it done. He's very determined to get it done. That's one of the things we like most about him. We'll see when we say that he's going to get done what's happening. You're you're there. You're not giving him him what they want. Oh no I've given him everything the whole time. I'm seeing the qualities that made it actually happened. He's known me since he's fifteen. He knows where he sold for Cameron. He was there. He's already been in the business for for five years. So he knew upfront he what he brought to this is a he's a consummate foam maker and be he knew me left right and center. He knows where all the bones are buried. He was in the WHO's in the dressing room. When we had that argument whatever went on he was then okay so the two of them and I had what you call a unity of purpose we we completely agreed about the level that we wanted to approach the thing which is rare in any project music or yeah? We did agree completely. We wanted to not do shine job. We didn't want to just say oh he kit because it's I'm not I'm not cute. I'm there are some people that might go in innocently to this movie thinking that you are well. God blessed to that when we didn't WANNA do it. We wanted to show you the truth about a human being as closely as we possibly could without any reservations association's on it at all no no. We'll just cover that we we all felt like that yeah union unit unanimity just complete. We all agreed to level because we didn't want to do the kind kind of shine job that most of the documentaries are well even within if you did even if it was just you going over the highlights of your career. That would still be some movie. The fact is there's no. <music> buttering anybody jokes at all thinking if this was me and it was remember my name I think we have to have that moment you notice. He used my phrase butter. He's in the I've heard to use that was you that was me I thought issue turn on the candidate. I have no right to do that. I really thrilled not here. You use my phrase because I think that's a great way to see didn't didn't tell me what he thought. I wanted to hear. He wasn't you know polishing. My apple makes him angrier. If somebody is trying to do that that would if they were saying. Maybe maybe don't don't generally like it. I like it. If you talk to me. Straight yeah which is one of the things that we have is he like I said he was there. He knows and when he doesn't pull his punches at all neither this A._J.. And that that was that degree of honesty made me fully confident about do the two of you get together on this particular project because he do in two A._J.. Eaten and David and just went into them as you will. It was J.J Abrams office because we were doing our hit showtime series roadies and we ran into to Iran's David in in our friendship and and H._a.. And they were talking about doing a documentary and immediately you know they were like Oh. Come on board with us the my again. We're doing this thing and everything but and I saw David's is that he was ready talk like he wanted to go there in this film and I said first of all as a fan when I watched this thing. I don't want to see a lot of talking heads. Forgive me but like you don't need a lot of people just put the him and you get them. Mike Him Warmly have him look like pretty much into the camera and cut out all middlemen <hes> David tells you about his life the way he would if you knew him for a while and it was a late night and you just ask them all the questions he wanted to ask him and so I said well I'll just do the first interview and have it enjoy it. You know he's the best interview ever and and I just kept interviewing him until I had to be in the show with them and that was a great day but when was the first time that you interviewed him it it had to be seventy four. I got an assignment from craw Daddy magazine to write about crosby stills Nash and young and they were opening their big tour and I've been dreaming of interviewing David as a young journalist and I interviewed him at our friend Joe Bernstein's house which was also Graham Nash next door and he just was so gracious and I had so many questions and he sat for every one of them. I'm like fifteen and he's he's saying. What else do you want to know? What else do you WanNa know he was? I was grieving over. My girlfriend's death like I'm fifteen going. David Crosby is telling me the most intensely personal trust me and I just always interviewed reviewed him every possible chance since and up until now that's all he asked of me was that I'd be honest but all taking him to Laurel Canyon he didn't want to go come on. We're not we're GONNA do that. Are you and wound up really well. Meanwhile everybody's talking about Laurel Canyon like we had to go to Laurel Canyon. He's like Oh. You're not GonNa make me stand on the steps of the country store. Thank Linda fries started. Started the eagles my God you have to Oh plea and this is what we put in the film when he those moments where he says things like there's no cinematic value in this whatsoever and he turns his back on the camera to save certainly yes he came in grump and he got me totally caught me being a grump absolutely then we get him to go in the Laurel Canyon country store which is really the citadel of that whole period as it exists Nessie. I see this is what you get so he walks in and he's looking kind of poetic and I go cross you know what did this place represent to you and he goes. You should see in the movie he goes. What did it represents the place where we came to get the grocery walks off camera and deal harasses the per poor person behind the counter but then he turns and he starts seeing these pictures including the doors which he has a little thing to say about the doors but Peter he goes outside and sits at the table and says the most intimate stuff of the entire interview series but that's because you asked me those question you you're just proud of it because you managed to produce at the store that's right 'cause he could've asked it? Somewhere wouldn't have been picture wouldn't have been a good shot at all so it had to get asked in the right place. I guess so for you to respond to tell me he knows what he's doing. I I am saying that it can learn the hard way because see he has kind of a baby face and you kind of trust and that could really read you up the wrong road but no it didn't because well can we show a little cook. There's there's a clip of you because what I love when you get into what you're doing whether you're excited by somebody or not excited that is there's something in you that gets kind of possessed by what it is in here in this clip slipped we have you're talking about culture fantastic. I looked pretty silly but it's funny. the the You look excited by what what you're talking about the movie we didn't know how to start the movie and we just decided decided one day that we were going to start at ninety miles an hour the story right all right well.

"Here. I don't care. They blow me away. So I'm getting ready to go on laurel. Canyon from the gummy store it's twelve hundred hours drive with my windows down the night air. Right. And I don't listen to music anything just silence. I love driving silence. And I'm sitting there and I hear this in demon. Drive up next me now. Like, what defies that a spaceship I look over I'll McLaren and right away. I'm like, oh, God. Here we go, and it's a young younger dude. Windows are so thin, these in a red brand new mkx. Learn. I don't know what you want. It was whatever the newest when seventy seven seven sixty s something like that. The brand new red and black sound like a God, damn rocket ship pulls up rose down their window and goes, he's probably listening. He's a fan of his big Brown, because like this, I'm like, hey, what's up and he's all. So I'm like, oh, well fuck man, I got to there's no one on the road. Laurel canyon. Let's fuck in fast and furious this, Spence I put it in race mode, and the light turns green, and almost I wish I could I wish I had a go pro. So I can show my brother 'cause I was like, who cares? Man. This, my car's fast CISCO's fast and he must have just got it. And so we full I feel so city with down this story. So we both agree, basically just we weren't like we race in like this. But it was just like you know, like, yeah, and we fuck in fly down low. I mean over one hundred. And then he just fucking just as my brother explained to me, just went and then just took off for me, man. And I was, I was embarrassed for multiple reasons because there's not a light for a while. So you're going, and he's he's really pulled away and his car so much louder the mind. That's a whole another thing. I'm trying to think so he gets way out ahead. And I'm just like kind of embarrassed this like key, but we pull it we stopped there, and he looked and goes on there for this. I'm just like you know this. I'm a I'm embarrassed. I even agreed to race because I'm thirty six year old with a three year old and one on the way. So there's that there's that be look over. And he goes like this. Do that will never forget his face.

"Well, we'd take an break for seven years, or something I made a couple of records. And then we got back together and rally is wasn't a really good idea. We've got back together for simple reasons that, you know, whatever causes take a break in the first place, we never really sort of that stuff out. Yeah. And it's not just another simple level right now being a rock bands, any for everybody. Yeah. You gotta work twice as hard to make maybe the lesson. You may ever you know. But yeah, it's up to you. There's not the incentives for doing that what they used to be so people's priorities changed you'll have lives in some people doing anymore, and that's not that easy to get along with. I don't know. I haven't really considered that well, it's dig into that. But it was your realization that maybe we shouldn't have. Done this, and I've brought this together, but we shouldn't have done this. So now what do I do that was kind of your little bit not to put words in your mouth, but, you know, it's my job in that group was always somewhat of a ringleader. I'm trying to motivate everybody. And depending on the Kasa characters you have sometimes it can be done. Sometimes it's really not easily done. And people were also the industry changed so much that people were very confused. Don't think we played to our best ranks am not gonna break down all the short for you. Billion was in hindsight, it wasn't a good. Yeah. I do like the recommended thought I had a lot of I think, on that. Yeah, really liked it. But it just wasn't a healthy environment. I don't think anybody. What about the break between records in, in the first place? It took you a long time until two thousand after bringing down the horse. What was that four year? Well, that was from bring on the horse breach. We were on tour fly almost at least three years classic thing is. And then, you know, I do remember pulling the plug because he just couldn't stay out there. We're going to go back to Europe. One more time. And I just couldn't see it happening. And then also you don't have any songs. Started. You gotta go gotta right? You got to clear head on. You got a fair. What is you want to write that doesn't happen overnight? Yeah. And then it took six months to make that record and women country, which was, I think T-Bone Burnett drug addiction. Really nice like you. Soul stuff has been real nice and spare, you have a bunch of songs. They don't know what to do with at this point, or have every not been writing. What's where do I have a bunch of songs? Yeah. We're gonna figure this out and we're going to take a ride on this movie trained for a little bit. Then we'll find a situation fair. What is I want to depending on what the songs it's been a while in the studio? So we'll take a look at them and see if it's a kind of record will be diving into this laurel canyon world. And again the comparing to now where did it leave both? You're thinking about sort of the record industry and music itself, now versus then. I mean for me it didn't really make me think about the music industry. I don't wanna think about the music industry. You guys don't want wanna have lunch with. I want to think about the music, you know, and I think you get to a certain point in your age your life. You start us off to reflect what you've done, and at that point that I got to I started to reflect about what drew me to California in the first place when I think about it, and I think about the film, I think about that period in a way that it is this innocent period..

"So, again, Michelle Phillips who have spoken to is just a lot of fun. And she seemed really delighted just by seeing the music played back to her. What did you take away from that encounter? Well, you know, the song was their first single gory. Want to mama's bums versing sixty five, and I think for her to hear it again, first of all, she tells you the personal story behind it, which is really that John Philps, writes, her and says, go you wanna go. She says, in the film should be call where you wanna go bitch. It's a real Fleetwood MAC style kiss off a real precursor of sort of that. Lindsey Stevie vibe, absolutely and your own way. And so the basic musical arrangement of that song, if you listen to the original the cadence of the way, they're singing is very kind of sixties up with people kind of delivery. And I think when Jacob and Jade from Edward sharp, and the magnetic zeros do it, sung a little straight, or so for her to hear it as sort of straightforward powerful folk rock song. I think it was it was nice for her, and you see that in the phone. So how did you get the exact focus as you said? It's not it's more about the birth of folk rock than the laurel canyon seen in its most sort of cliche form because that actually was a little later. So how did you kind of decide that focus? I the other people associate law canyon with the singer songwriter to me. There's three different things that happen. One is this age of innocence were people come here to be like the Beatles because the birds have a hit and they're the supposed to be the American Beatles, and they have multiple singers, and they get together in the living law canyon, and they're in these bands, and then the age of psychedelia happens and things get a little crazy in the doors happen. And people start coming here in San Francisco happens. And then there's a retrenchment to country and folk and there's the search for the individual these guys all want to do their own thing. And that's really the pure that I think, is the most classically associated with laurel canyon, where it's Joni Mitchell, and the band is called Crosby. Stills Nash and young instead of the buffalo Springfield. So. The focus for me was always that period because it seemed the most Purity's seemed, the most innocent, it seemed like something that hadn't been explored telling a story, you don't want to tell somebody else's store, you want to tell your idea, as you know, is probably the writer. Sure the lineup this sort of living room, rehearsal hang out, lineup of back, Regina spector, cat power, and Jacob was that just who was rehearsing for the show, kind of also set up for film. I mean those scenes were really interesting. And that did meek that didn't look organic and natural hanging. Hanging about law canyon, if it was still nineteen sixty six might be how things still on. Yeah. Well, those are, you know, they're all in the performance at the concert film, in their friends of mine Andy's, but they're also looking records. I mean that's the whole thing, you know, back, even when I was growing up when I record came out. It was so important for prince record came out. It was so important. And so, you know, sitting there and looking at an album cover that's twelve by twelve that is the singular image you're going to find with a band. You know, that's what created the, the great alchemy of music. You know, it wasn't just it wasn't just the sound of something I think if rock and roll success was based on right, musicianship, total would have been the biggest magazine with best musicians, but you know it's not it's based on love and sex and angst..
