    Thanks for the trip down memory lane Graham. Another song that got my attention as a 19 year old. Sad that Jim Morrison died one month after it’s release, albeit self inflicted due to drug abuse.

    Doug should have had this song on repeat during his road trip.

      Hi Doug, Barry,

      You have a lot of catching up to do on songs Doug. lol. Here is another one that may spark more memories.

        Thanks Graham!

        A classic.

        I don't think I drove much of Route 66 then. It has been decommissioned.

        During a later trip I drove up the classic Highway 1 from LA to San Francisco. It was while Clint Eastwood was mayor of Carmel. He wasn't in when I called!

          Hi Doug,

          I did the LA to Chicago route 5 years ago but I took the easy option by using Amtrak. 4 days and nights on a train but wow, did we see some sights! Can’t get that at 35,000 ft.

          My favourite road song is this. I chose the live version to demonstrate the talent of the musicians. It’s a long song but I love the way the tempo changes several times.

            Thanks Barry

            Marvellous!

            I've thought about that Amtrack journey several times over the years. Too late now. It must have been beautiful.

            Stay safe!

            Doug
