Doors - Morrison Hotel RIAA Certified Gold! Click here to see this CD at!

By Jerry McCulley

The next-to-last Doors album, recorded prior to Jim Morrison's still mystery-shrouded death in a Parisian bathtub, eschewed much of the band's previous penchant for baroque musical, poetic, and philosophical pretensions (this was, after all, the back-to-roots era of the Beatles' Let It Be, the Stones' Let It Bleed, and Dylan's Nashville Skyline). Instead, the Doors circa 1970 wisely seeped themselves in a bluesy, no-frills approach that might have hinted at creative exhaustion in a lesser band. Instead, the Doors of "Roadhouse Blues" and "Peace Frog" reinvented themselves into arguably one of the greatest bar bands ever, with Morrison's well-documented demons frolicking in a welcome new ambience. "Waiting for the Sun" and "Ship of Fools" may hearken back to the band's cabalistic and Kurt Weill leanings, respectively, but framed in an edgier, more effective way.

"It was one of three favorite Doors albums for me , to this day I carry a Morrison Hotel tape in my car (my '64 GTO) , and since the day I bought the album (vinyl record) I never got tired of it. Even though the Doors have only made seven albums , they are still my favorite rock band of all time !"

--Big Al

"This is argueably the best release from this doorbreaking band. A bluesy rock classic that stands the test of time. Jim at his best as the blues entertainer he always wanted to be. Great songs!"
