EDITORS’ NOTES

L.A. Woman was Jim Morrison's sixth and final studio album with The Doors. It's an inspired set of blues-based material that transcends the genre with Morrison's otherworldly intensity. His psychedelic influences are still at work on the tribal "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)" and in the wonderfully bizarre "Hyacinth House," where he proclaims, "I see the bathroom is clear." The title track, "Love Her Madly," and "Riders on the Storm" are permanent fixtures in the classic-rock canon, while "The Changeling" may be the group's most underrated track, spotlighting Ray Manzarek's defining organ work.

Mr. Mojo Risin'

The best blues album I've ever heard! This album brought about huge change and fortune to the group as well as the most memorable songs from their entire catalogue! Some of my absolute favorites are "Love Her Madly," "L.A. Woman," "Been Down So Long," "Hyacinth House," "The WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)," and of course "Riders On the Storm." Brilliant, Brilliant songwriting and musicianship in every form of regard! My second favorite record from them just behind their debut. Go out and get it now!! If you haven't heard "Orange County Suite," go and check it out. One of the very last songs ever written by Jim. Live on Lizard King

Jim Morrison probably smelled great

This is-quite possibly without a doubt- the greatest album ever released. Ever. Listen to it 1000 times, slam a bottle of rum, and then you will be a true man.

Without a doubt

...the most comprehensible and focused album of their career. Every song is tight and there are skip songs on this one. Riders is the best last song, literally, of all time.
