Album Details

Release Date: November 17, 1978
Label: 
Rhino

The Doors recorded six studio albums with Jim Morrison as their singer from 1967 to 1971, hitting the charts with a series of pop songs that were at least as good as Tommy James and the Shondells. On their albums, they indulged in Morrison's pretentious obsessions that included extended pieces about Oedipal complexes and the end of the world. Those obsessions have been exaggerated by The Doors myth that continues to this day. This is a collection of Morrison's poetry, embellished by the surviving Doors several years after the fact.

I think this is a wonderful album and proved that, had Jim stuck around, the Doors could have remained a viable writing and recording force throughout the 70's. With Jim's words and imagery to inspire them, the Doors just can't miss and the newer music reflects that inspiration.
