In April 1971 DOORS LAWOMAN give us a timeless wonder and July 3 of that year, their charismatic leader Jim Morrison was found dead in his bathtub 47 of the Beautreillis street in Paris. From the first piece The Changeling, you feel like you fell on a large disk. The group now has a bass player, Jerry Scheff (former bassist for Presley) and it shows! Jim's voice also is no longer the same, more raucous. Love Her Madly On, pulsating rhythm, guitar riffs and organ put us in joy. Been Down So Long, Jim's voice is unrecognizable, Robbie Krieger loose some wonderful flights of guitars that echo on the left and right channels of the stereo, relying on a thick bass playing. With Car Hiss By My Window it comes to the blues, slow way to blow before attacking LAWoman, whose pace is accelerating, always driven by bass / drums, guitar and organ will give it! "Cops in car, the topless bars / Never saw a woman so alone / So alone" Jim gives us his vision of Los Angeles and women. The piece lasts 7mn49 and vinyl records time here was ending side 1 who saw us in a trance. Following is the America, which starts very slowly, instruments which come one after the other, with a battery (John Densmore) martial. Hyacinth House is a lower capacity. Crawling King Snake is an adaptation of a John Lee Hooker blues where Robbie Krieger stands. The last two titles set fire to what remained standing in the house! First WASP The heady pace "I wanna tell you about Texas Radio and the Big Beat" and finally Riders On The Storm, rain and storm off, bass, cymbals and very soft keyboards, voice quiet but Jim also to unleash "There's a killer on the road / Sweet family will die." Ray Manzarek fills the space of the piano and organ, Jim lulls us with his sublime voice, Robbie Krieger weaves wonderful guitar parts while the bassist and drummer gently hammer imperturbable rhythm. And always this falling rain punctuated by thunderclaps. On this date in 1971, neither we nor the Doors fans, knew it was not the end (The End!), And the album was superb. Today we know that everything is over but emerged album "digitally remastered" version is even more beautiful.
