The Doors: The Soft Parade (LP)

(Elektra) 9 tracks

In 1969, The Doors released their fourth album, moving a little away from the sounds of their earlier LPs and using horn and string arrangements.

"It was supposed to be a sonic extravaganza," Ray Manzarek wrote in his autobiography Light My Fire: My Life with The Doors, "with horns and strings complementing our basic sound of guitar, keyboards and drums. We wanted to bring jazz cats, country and western pickers and classical pickers.

Like most of the band's catalogue, The Soft Parade was produced by Paul A. Rothchild, but Manzarek took the opportunity to have a hand in the process himself. "I enjoyed the hell out of producing the album," Manzarek wrote. "I especially enjoyed working with Paul Harris on the arrangements for the tracks, which were to have a sonic tapestry of horns and strings."

While it didn't go down in history as the easiest album to record (Manzarek described that it "took an incredibly long time to finish"), it was a commercially successful album: it gave the Doors another Top 10 album - it reached No. 6 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums Chart - and gave the band another Top 5 single with "Touch Me", while three other tracks ("Wishful Sinful", "Tell All the People" and "Runnin' Blue") all climbed into the Hot 100.

The Doors

Gegründet 1965

1971 bildeten Sie die Schlagzeilen in den Musikgazetten: Jetzt, nach dem Tode von Jim Morrison, so hieß es, könne und solle man doch am besten gleich die ganze Formation Doors - oder besser das, was von ihr übriggeblieben war, begraben. Denn ein Rumpf könne ja nur schwerlich ohne Kopf existieren. Ganz ruppige Schreiber gaben den verbliebenen Musikern Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger und John Densmore gar den guten Rat, gleich für immer von der Bühne abzutreten, damit wenigstens die gute Erinnerung an sie als Morrisons Background-Group bliebe. Man darf den Fachblättern diese Forderung nicht verübeln, denn es gab in der Tat eine ganze Menge Anzeichen dafür, in Pessimismus zu machen.

Immerhin war Jim Morrison für die Gruppe dreifach wichtig gewesen - er war der wichtigste Songautor, zweitens Leadsänger und drittens Sprecher der Gruppe. Und schließlich war seine Bühnenshow - gelinde gesagt - äußerst spektakulär. Seit mehr als 4 Jahren arbeiten die Doors nun schon als Trio weiter. Ihre ersten beiden LPs, die sie als Trio aufnahmen, veranlaßten die Fachzeitschrift „Disc' zu der Feststellung, die Doors spielten heute besser denn je zuvor. Ihre Songs drücken heute Optimismus und Lebensfreude aus, die man zu Morrisons Zeiten nicht gekannt hat. Plötzlich swingen die Doors-Titel, werden Boogie-Rhythm and Rock-Elemente deutlich, oder wie bei „Mosquito“ eine Art Latin-Rock. „Ich habe nun eben die besten Musiker hinter mir', sagte Morrison. Erst jetzt hört man so ganz, wie recht er hatte. Original Presse-Info: WEA Music GmbH

 

The Doors (USA)                                                                                              

Famous rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1966 by Jim Morrison (vocals), Robby Krieger (guitar), Ray Manzarek (keyboards) and John Densmore (drums).  By the late '60s, Morrison's behaviour on and off stage was becoming increasingly erratic.  He left the group in late 1970 and died in Paris the following year aged just 27, reportedly of heart failure.  The Doors were a presence on the US album charts from 1967, through the '70s and '80s, and well into the '90s.
