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!
