Laurel Canyon Vibe

The 60s Los Angeles music scene was a very special time.  I would love to have been there to seen all that talent in one place.

Laurel Canyon Vibe
by Michael Doyle

There was an avalanche of sound
That echoed down the canyon
Harmonies in and out of bounds
Loved felt with sheerest abandon

Souls stopped at the cornered start
Super grouped into a collaboration of heart
There was something happening there
That fifty years later is a little clearer

Talked in a dream that grew into fantasy
Trading guitar licks blended into melody
A million questions wrapped into a feeling
That on a good day leaves my head reeling

It seems that the sense that you've asked
That all of my urgencies have been tasked
It was mind blowing as it sonically rained
With all the rock-n-roll children unrestrained

There in the love that needed no urging
Were street corner studios in all their versions
Never would come a time of tired association
True love caught in all its tinted reverberation

All of these cascading notes the spilled in flow
Spending each moment wishing we'd never let go
The geometry of it all has it's spherical vibration
Laurel Canyon in all of its golden reiterations

Street light poets bold enough to spread the word
Until it became more than a little blurred
As to who said what and exactly was that when
We need to find our way back to this garden again
