EDITORS’ NOTES

After decades as a classic-rock staple, The Doors’ debut album still overflows with smouldering sensuality and moody, mysterious vibes. Jim Morrison’s dark, poetic vision powers the platter, from elegant ballad “The Crystal Ship” to doomy odyssey “The End”. But The Doors were a true collective, and Ray Manzarek’s deftly darting organ lines, Robbie Krieger’s serpentine guitar licks and John Densmore’s jazzy drum rhythms are crucial to the sound of all-out rockers (“Take It As It Comes”) and atmospheric nocturnes (“End of the Night”) alike.
