A New Anthology Compilation of Laurel Canyon Music Scene was just Released

A 3-CD collection of 72 songs

During the late ’60s and early ’70s, the music created in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Laurel Canyon was one of the most influential and remains iconic today.

Now a special anthology celebrating it titled I See You Live On Love Street – Music From Laurel Canyon 1967-1975, a 3-CD collection of 72 songs arrived on March 22, 2024, via the Grapefruit label of U.K. company Cherry Red Records.

Represented on the set are the Mamas & the Papas, The Doors, Stephen Stills, David Crosby, Warren Zevon, Linda Ronstadt, the Turtles, Rita Coolidge, and dozens of others, both well-known and obscure.

From the label’s January announcement: the Laurel Canyon music community became a dominant worldwide force in the late ’60s and early ’70s. The collection traces the scene’s development from pivotal early bands through to the developing country-rock scene to the singer-songwriter boom that defined the early 70s.

Just minutes from Hollywood, the Sunset Strip, and the LA record companies and recording studios, Laurel Canyon became home to a folk, country, rock, and pop hybrid that encompassed everyone from early players The Byrds and Buffalo Springfield to The Doors, Frank Zappa, Glen Campbell and pop kingpins The Monkees.

The compilation charts the scene’s birth and gradual development until a revitalized, relocated Fleetwood Mac spearheaded a new, sleeker Laurel Canyon sound to go stratospheric in the mid-’70s. The new title is available in the U.S. here and in the U.K. here.
