"That album contains so many clues to his faked death - it was a coded message to his fans - to those who could read the runes - that he had faked
The lyrics to Hyacinth House tell the story of how he would do it - in the bathroom."
Nothing to do with the fact the album was written and recorded in a converted house, the tiled bathroom being used as the vocal booth?
"The title track was a sad farewell to LA [he would have to live somewhere else in the world under a different identity - the song 'Changling'
points to this]."
The title track is clearly a celebration of Morrison's personal vision of the city of LA. The Changeling is clearly a celebration of Morrison's own
LA lifestyle at that point, a time when he never carried money (only an Amex card), kept a few clothes in the trunk of his car, and often wouldn't
change the clothes on his back for weeks at a time.
"He would go to South America [hence the song L'America]".
L'America was originally commissioned for the soundtrack of the film Zabriskie Point after the movie's director Michelangelo Antonioni attended one
of the LA Woman recording sessions. When the band later presented him with L'America he felt it wasn't suitable for the movie, so it ended up being
used on the LA Woman album.
