Canyon of Dreams by Ray Manzarek Canyon of Dreams, Paperback (March 2012)

Laurel Canyon is a zip code with its own play list: to name just a few, Sonny & Cher, The Doors, Monkees, and the Eagles all cultivated their immortal sounds in this LA-based musical fraternity. Written by a long-time Canyon resident, this title presents an illustrated insider's look at 80 years of music and culture in Laurel Canyon.

Light My Fire by Ray Manzarek Light My Fire, Paperback (May 1999)

Ray Manzarek co-founded "The Doors" with Jim Morrison in 1965. Their original mix of jazz, classical, Californian surf, Flamenco guitar and Chicago blues made a great impact on the music of the day. Manzarek's story illuminates the dark myths and lays to rest the rumours about the band.
