Craig Doerge (1973)

Here’s an album I found on Grapher’s (R.I.P.) website some time ago. It was listed as Westcoast, so i thought I’s give it a listen. I wasn’t disappointed. It’s not your usual Westcoast album but it has some great moments, in particular the ballad “The Trouble With A Woman”.

I small amount of digging will tell you that Craig has his roots firmly in the Laurel canyon scene, having played with Crosby, Stills & Nash, James Taylor & Jackson Browne (among many, many others). He also formed the band ‘The Section’ with Danny Kortchmar, Leland Sklar and Russ Kunkel. Now that’s proper Westcoast cred.
