Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
After The Doors finished recording L.A. WOMAN in 1971, frontman Jim Morrison moved to Paris, France. In the meantime, the three other members - drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger, and keyboardist Ray Manzarek - stayed behind in Los Angeles where they worked on music for what would be the group's seventh studio album. When the legendary singer passed away in July, 1971, the trio used those songs as the basis for OTHER VOICES, with Krieger and Manzarek provding the vocals. Given the presence of producer Bruce Botnick as well as the work process behind these eight originals, the classic Doors sound is strongly evident. Tracks like “In the Eye of the Sun,” the epic “Ships w/ Sails” and single “Tightrope Ride” are stirring reminders of the Rock and Roll Hall of Famers' instrumental brilliance. Often overlooked and hard-to-find until its reissue earlier this year, OTHER VOICES is an album no Doors fan should be without.
