Once the album was released in early 1974, Ray went out on the road on a six week tour to promote the album. Multiple radio stations including KCEW Dallas, WRAS New York, WSRT Chicago and WLIR Long Island recorded the concerts and broadcast them on FM radio. Only one of those recordings (WLIR) has been found. If you know of the existence of the other recordings, please contact us through one of Ray’s social accounts. The tour finale was two nights at the Whisky A Go Go. The tour proved to be so successful that a second tour was set up in the summer of 1974.
When the album was released in January of 1975, Ray set out on a cross county tour.
The band would release their self-titled debut album in 1977 and tour extensively in support of the album. The band would begin work on their second album soon after, this time without Noah James. Due to issues with the record label, their second album, “Ray Manzarek’s Golden Days, Diamond Nights” would only be released in West Germany.
There was one other scene using a Doors tune that ended up on the cutting room floor. It was a scene titled “Monkey Sampan” which featured a group of villagers singing “Light My Fire”.
