I'd heard The Doors' singles Light My Fire and Riders on the Storm many a time but I ventured further when I bought the film soundtrack which has all the popular songs and then LA Woman on CD. With my renewed interest in vinyl I'm always looking for albums I missed first time round "The Doors " was one of those purchases.
This debut album was released in 1967 it doesn't have a 60's vibe or any other decade vibe, The Doors' music is timeless IMO, the album contains the 11 minute "The End" to think that was written in 1966! (It is used for the opening scene in Apocalypse Now.)
The Doors "sound" is made by Ray Manzarek's keyboards (who sadly died earlier this year) but of course we must not forget the pretentious poet who fronted the band the enigma that was Jim Morrison who I presume will get a mention or two in this thread .
I hope there are some of you who have never listened to The Doors as it might be a treat for you to discover a "new" old band like I did in the early 90's.
