Love Street Sign

Sign stating the new name for Rothdell Trail

The song “Love Street” was written by Jim Morrison about this street off of Laurel Canyon Blvd where he lived with his girlfriend Pamela Courson.

Morrison and Courson referred to Rothdell Trail as “Love Street” because they would sit on the balcony and watch numerous hippies walk by.

“I see you live on Love Street/ There’s this store where the creatures meet/I wonder what they do in there?/Summer Sunday and a year/I guess I like it fine, so far”. The store mentioned was the Laurel Canyon Country Store down the street from their home.

Morrison also wrote the rest of the “Waiting for the Sun album that “Love Street” appears on and some of “The Soft Parade album while living here. Waiting For The Sun was recorded in February/May of 1968 at TTG Studios in Hollywood. The Soft Parade was recorded July 1968/May 1969 at Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles.
