Editors’ Notes

The soundtrack for Tom DiCillo's excellent documentary on The Doors features many of the band's finest songs, brief interview segments, and Johnny Depp reading Jim Morrison's poetry. Depp is the perfect modern voice for Morrison's words. Many of the poems are little more than a few phrases that link the songs and give context to the band's vision, though "The Girl of the Ghetto" is a nicely turned piece, and "Goodbye America" has an amusing finality to it. The Doors songs included are an interesting mix, including "Light My Fire" from their 1967 appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, "Break on Through (To the Other Side)" live from the Isle of Wight in August 1970, and "Roadhouse Blues" live from New York in 1970, in a version that far exceeds the studio recording. The deluxe version includes three bonus songs ("The Changeling," "Strange Days," and "The Spy") and a video excerpt from the film.

Customer Reviews

WOW

The Doors and Johnny Depp in one album!! There is nothing sweeter than Johnny Depp reciting Jim Morisson's inspirational poems. Love it!

Not as good as it should be

I like Johnny Depp, and I love the Doors, but word of advice...Never ever trust a review from people who use the phrases LOL and things of that nature, at least not for a classic rock album. They might as well just say "Johnny Depp RULEZ!" If you really want to hear Jim's poetry, grab yourself a copy of "American Prayer." It's Jim's poetry spoken by Jim, and it's phenomenal. Also be sure to check out the movie, as it is very well done and contains a lot of footage from Morrison's unreleased movie HWY.

Another great doors album.

Perfect.
