1. Why i came to california Lyrics. Zuma Oh I'd like to walk the beach on Zuma Watching all those pretty girls Venice It gets really strange going through Venice There's a different attitude. There were places in the valley Where they said that I could find it There were rhythms in the distance In the ancient elder forest. That is why I came to California It's the freest groove that I have ever known All the youth seekers come to Caliornia Following the fountain in their mind, in their mind.

Why I Came To California. Vocals – Janis Siegel.

Why I Came To California" is a sun-kissed soul boogie groove with big horns and even bigger chorus. Rockin' You Eternally" (which is, let's face it, one of the smoothest song titles to ever come from the 80s) showcases Leon's softer side. A ballad steeped in sentiment, play this loud enough and everyone in a five mile radius will stop and get smoochy. This second album from 1976 is one of the many highlights from his personal repertoire. His only Motown released album, it's a smooth soul adventure with less big band dynamics of his contemporaries and a stripped back backing orchestration. Highlights include the deep shades of Trouble Man on the vocal layers of "Body Heat", the minor key introspection of "Holiday" and proto Balearic wooziness of "Musical Massage". Leon Ware & Janis Siegel - "Why I Came To Califonia" (4:10). Leon Ware - "Can I Touch You There" (4:07).

From Elektra Records' point of view, these two songs were considered "Jazz-Fusion", which was still somewhat of a niche market in the U.S. in the late 1970s / early 1980s. Contrary to a lot of other record companies, Elektra Records was also well known to take a very targeted approach with its promotional material at the time. In this particular case, Elektra's promotional activities with this super limited, promo-only 12"-single were geared exclusively towards U.S. Easy Listening FM radio stations and a few selected (Jazz) music journalists. Hence it's rarity nowadays. Anyway, Elektra's A&R people surely did a great job by picking two standout tracks from Leon Ware's (R.I.P.) self-titled 1982 album to have it marketed via Jazz (Fusion) radio stations. Although lesser known than "Why I Came to California", the flip side with "Can I Touch You There" with its upbeat, driving energy is the real killer here! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I have no idea why this particular elektra promo is so scarce, but it sure is.
