The first two albums without Jim were anything but well received. The Doors had officially disbanded five years earlier decided to give it more more go with 'An American Prayer', released in November 1978.
Bring back the edgy sound and that's just what The Doors did. 'Morrison Hotel' released in February 1970 featured John Sebastian (Lovin' Spoonful) used the pseudonym G.Puglese and played harmonica on "Roadhouse Blues". The album also featured blues guitar specialist Lonnie Mack on bass.
Let's welcome the horns and strings and that's just what The Doors did on "The Soft Parade" which was released in July 1969. Unfortunately the album was not as successful as the first three albums because the sound was way different than what The Doors had established.
'Absolutely Live' is The Doors first live release that included various locations Los Angeles, Detroit, Philadelphia, New York and Copenhagen, Denmark. The album was a double album with performances from 1969 and 1970.
'L.A.Woman' was The Doors very last release before Jim's passing, in fact; it would prove to release two of the band's best known songs, "Riders On The Storm" and "Love Her Madly." The album was released in April 1971.
The Doors spent two years of performing in clubs establishing that fine grain of what would be their repertoire for years to come. Jim Morrison, Robbie Krieger, Ray Manzarek and John Densmore eventually 'broke on through' with their first album in 1967.
Should the remaining members of the Doors reunite (it seems unlikely), drummer John Densmore knows who he'd want to fill Jim Morrison's space in front of the microphone. It's not clear if he's being cute or funny, but during a recent radio interview he said Jimmy Fallon could get the job done.
He's been dead for decades -- and the subject of countless retrospectives ever since -- but that doesn't mean we've heard and seen everything Jim Morrison committed to tape before he passed away. The latest example? A newly unearthed candid interview the Doors front man gave to director and journalist Howard Smith in 1969.
