Product Description

Amazon.ca

On their 1967 debut album, the Doors more than fulfilled the promise of their infamously challenging gigs around Los Angeles throughout the previous year. Whether belting out a standard like "Back Door Man" or talk-singing such originals as "The Crystal Ship" and "I Looked at You," leather-clad vocalist Jim Morrison exuded both sensuality and menace. The mixture, on the outsize album finale, "The End," helped rewrite the rules on rock song composition. None of this would have worked, though, were it not for the highly visual instrumental work of keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robbie Krieger, and drummer John Densmore, whose work on tracks such as "Take It As It Comes" and the lengthy hit "Light My Fire" virtually defined the rock-blues-jazz-classical amalgam that was acid-rock. --Billy Altman

5.0 out of 5 stars Take Me On A Trip July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
Let me tell you how great this album is. I found every song so great, I grew up thinking this was a greatest hits album. Until I realized I was an idiot...and wrong, I always never considered this one of their greatest albums because I never thought it was a regular album. That being said, you can already understand the power this has. Either that or how much of an idiot I am.
The Doors is my all time favorite band. Morrison, Manzarek, Densmore, and Krieger...the finest in each of their professions. From Morrison's swagger and unintelligible poetry at times, to Manzarek's blues and soul organ, then forth to Densmore's eccentric jazz drumming, and finishing up with the inane flamenco aspects of Krieger's finger picking guitar work...The Doors in retrospect, own. Their debut is such a powerhouse and makes you scream, explode, and reach for the air, that you really just can't get enough of it.
The singles, the hits, and the golden ones are obvious. Who in their right mind HASN'T heard 'Break on Through' or 'Light My Fire'? Or even 'Whiskey Bar'? It's apparent that this album has highlights. But, look further and you can see just where the Doors progressed. From the opening rawhide thunder opener, 'Break on Through' we slowly diminish into this psychological warp that is, 'The End.' Surprisingly, that's exactly where the Doors left off and began with their follow up, 'Strange Days.'
While this is their debut, it is almost a greatest hits album. It culminates everything the damn Doors are. It has psychological, psychedelic rock with that jazz, that blues, and even that thrill. You watch sneak previews at the theaters today and it's not too different than this. Their self titled debut is a demo to what was to come, the ride they were to take us on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to the dark side July 14 2004
Format:Audio CD
1966 was showing a loosening of the boundaries of everything, but 1967 it was throughly, and completely undone. The Doors were one of the parties responsible. With thier 1967 debut it was probably the 3rd biggest album to be released that year after Hendrix's "Are You Experienced?", and "Sgt.Pepper" of course. I honestly feel that the group made a big mistake here though. Yes they wanted to be remembered as a group that made it big, but even with the first single "Break On Through" only making it to 106 on billboard they shouldn't have compromised on "Light My Fire". That became the next single, and while it went to #1 it was Morrison's masterpiece, and it should've been left in it's almost 7 minute version. People were starting to want the music to be longer than the usual 2-3 minute single it still would've been a monster hit Look at Zepplin's "Stairway To Heaven" still at 8:00 long, and it's the #1 most requested song today. Well anyway "Light My Fire" is such a masterpiece I even consider Jose Feliciano's version a year later to be equal to the Door's version. "Soul Kitchen" could've been the next single as it was about 3 minutes long, and it has a punk agnst in it too. I found the "Alabama Song" strictly novelty material as it sounds like something out of Russia. "Back Door Man" was very unbridled, and was also the song done at a Conneticuit concert where Morrison faced his first arrest. I feel that there was even one more masterpiece on this album, and that was "The End". This was one that broke all the chains of morality in music underscored in Satanism, and the Odepus Complex. Not even the Fugs, the Beatles, the MC5, or the Velvet Underground would touch this one. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUST for any Doors Fan June 24 2004
Format:Audio CD
The year's 1967. Music is being processed within an inch of life and musicians are coming out onto the scene. Gotta admit it though- none like Jim, John, Ray and Robby. "The Doors" is an essential for anybody who's looking for a first or second Doors album to purchase. Although this isn't my favorite Doors album, the songs on here are memoriable ones. "Light My Fire", obviously one of the most famous Doors song, for one thing gives you 7 minutes of enjoyment and vocals that'd make even the dullest person want to dance. "Break On Through", another Doors favorite, is a song everyone has grown familiar with. "Backdoor Man", "End Of The Night", "End" and "I Looked at You" are among my favorites on the album.
So ditch modern music and stick with artists like The Doors, and go out and by this CD. It'll be one you'll love to have in your CD collection! If you're looking for another Doors album to experience, try "L.A Woman" or "Morrison Hotel".

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest debuts ever June 21 2004
Format:Audio CD
In January of 1967, California based rockers The Doors released its self-titled debut and was one of three spectacular debut albums released in '67, which also included debuts by Jimi Hendrix with Are You Experienced and of course Pink Floyd's The Piper at the Gates of Dawn. Every track here is classic, even today. The 7 minute Light My Fire was their first of two #1 hits and remains their signature track and a staple of rock radio. The long solos in the track, first by keyboardist Ray Manzarek and then by guitarist Robby Krieger, are superb. The opening track Break On Through is one of their most immediate tracks, featuring some of Jim Morrison's most memorable lyrics and on the 2000 reissue, the song was finally released unedited with its "she get high" refrain which the word high was edited off of the original recording in 1967. Other excellent tracks are Twentieth Century Fox, the rollicking cover of an old German opera track Alabama Song, the quiet and melodic Crystal Ship, the blues of Back Door Man and the mid-tempo rock of Soul Kitchen. The closing track The End is one of the darkest epics recorded in rock history. This track is powerful and on this reissue, Jim unleashed a series of "f" bombs which were removed from the original vinyl release as swearing was a no-no in the 60s. Today, this album has held up well and doesn't sound like a 37 year old record. I first got this album on cassette in late 1986 when I was 10 and loved it immediately. Highly recommended!
