‘The Crystal Ship’ by THE MOONS (original by THE DOORS)

THE MOONS, Northampton’s rockers, led by  singer/guitarist/songwriter Andy Crofts 
(who used to be in Paul Weller‘s live band) are currently working on their fourth album.
And to celebrate the new year they just shared (free download) their affectionate version of THE DOORS‘ sad love ballad THE CRYSTAL SHIP (according to drummer John Densmore  it was written by Jim Morrison shortly after splitting up with his first serious girlfriend, Mary Werbelow). I think Crofts chose this poignant song for a specific reason. The Crystal Ship is on the legendary Los Angeles band’s self-titled debut album that turns 50 this Wednesday. Yes, that historic LP was released on 4 January 1967, fifty years ago. Enjoy this serene and respectful interpretation by The Moons

Before you slip into unconsciousness
I’d like to have another kiss
Another flashing chance at bliss
Another kiss, another kiss

The days are bright and filled with pain
Enclose me in your gentle rain
The time you ran was too insane
We’ll meet again, we’ll meet again

Oh tell me where your freedom lies
The streets are fields that never die
Deliver me from reasons why
You’d rather cry, I’d rather fly

The crystal ship is being filled
A thousand girls, a thousand thrills
A million ways to spend your time
When we get back, I’ll drop a line
