(2-LP set) (45RPM) Half of the songs on Soft Parade, The Doors' fourth LP, were written by Morrison and the other half by guitarist Krieger. 'Touch Me' became one of The Doors' most popular singles. Released as a single in December 1968, the song reached
After considerably broadening their sound on Waiting for the Sun, the Doors decided to continue pushing the envelope with their next release. Incorporating brass, strings, and even a full orchestra, The Soft Parade is easily the most challenging album in the Doors' catalog--if not the most accomplished. Though the hit "Touch Me" and other tracks ("Shaman's Blues," "Wild Child") hearken back to the band's edgier self, the title track is a multipart rock suite that evokes some of the psychedelic era's worst excesses. Robby Krieger's "Wishful Sinful" serves up some uncharacteristic melancholy, but elsewhere there's a sense that some of the "experiments" here just might be filler. --Jerry McCulley --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

"Tell All The People"-great song, the brass doesn't ruin it!
"Touch Me"-the only Doors song I hear on Oldies stations that play all the obscure, slow songs. Still a great song. Curtis Amy, sax genius, honorary member of The Doors!
"Shaman's Blues"-cool organ sound. Love the tune.
"Do It"-good drums by John, simple lyrics. "You are the ones who will rule the world" could have been part of a rock song these days!
"Easy Ride"-fun song! "Eeeasyyy-yeah-yeah-right!"
"Wild Child"-great! good organ!
"Runnin Blue"-one of the best songs on the album! ode to Otis Redding at the start
"Wishful Sinsful"-the strings are slushy, but I love this song! I hear no organ though? Where's Ray?
"The Soft Parade"-masterpiece
Get this album, it;'s diff, but great!
the recording is thick, warm, silky, AND punchy. full and balanced, just like their pressing of LA WOMAN.
just a BEAUTIFUL experience listening to it.
i'm sorry to say folks, but to me, it WAS worth the seventy odd dollars i paid for it. too bad about the US exchange rate grrrrr lol
but honestly, i am simply thrilled to have a version of this record that sounds SOOOOOO amazing !
if you can, treat yourself to these doors 45 RPM analogue productions pressings. this is what music on vinyl is all about.
you can also go on YT and find some videos on how these particular pressings were cut ……..
i am so glad i passed on the rhino LP reissues of their catalog, as those were are cut from digital files ……. these AP reissues are all AAA vinyl

What can I say? "Soft Parade" is, in my mind, the Doors best album.Published 5 months ago by Jean Shaw
Bought it for the SACD. SACD sounds better than the CD version of the original recording remastered. The sound is warmer, voices and instruments more clear and realistic. Read morePublished on May 20 2014 by Eric G

The Soft Parade is my favourite Doors album. The title track is arguably the best piece of music they ever made. Read morePublished on April 7 2006 by Dwayne Nietzche
The Doors' fourth album "The Soft Parade" kind of picks up where "Waiting For The Sun" left off. Read morePublished on June 22 2004
THE SOFT PARADE, The Doors' fourth album, struggles to be musically inventive. What made the first two albums so wonderfully successful is their very unique sound, and that sound... Read morePublished on June 11 2004 by Mike London
