L.A. Woman > Wiki


The last official Doors studio album,L.A. Womanwas still high on the charts when, like the "actor out on loan" of its closing track, "Riders on the Storm," Jim Morrison died in a Paris bathtub in the summer of 1971. Via such tracks as "The Changeling," "Crawling King Snake," and the frothy, rollicking title track, the collection leaned heavily toward the blues--in particular, Morrison's boastful "Lizard King" brand of it. It also holds another entry in the band's ever-adventurous tone poems in the ever-underrated mythical tale of American music and culture, "WASP (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)."--Billy Altman

A good blues record that features Mr. Morrison on top of his game. Soem great instrumental embellishments by the rest of the guys. Hyacinth House is one underrated gem and Riders On The Storm has some great keyboard and guitar solos. Only Crawling King Snake gets a little weary after a while. Otherwise, this is one of the best final albums of original material by its original members.
