Though they've been out of commission for decades, The Doors have a continuing influence on the development of rock & roll, as this four disc set of mostly unreleased material reminds us. In the sixties, they provided a West Coast alternative to the decadent, urban visions of the Velvet Underground and the Stooges. Jim Morrison's position as rock Bacchus was the stuff of prime rock mythology, providing the blueprint for countless self-styled enfants terrible in the '70s. His Rimbaud-with-leather-pants lyrics were arguably a precedent-setter for the likes of punk grandparents Richard Hell and Patti Smith. The band's combination of psychedelic, jazz and classical influences created a unique musical tapestry.
Doors fans both rabid and casual will find plenty of reasons to be cheerful here. Live tracks, studio outtakes, and other rarities provide a unique glimpse into the legacy of a band whose fire burned out far too soon. The fourth disc is a testament to the staying power of the band's catalogue. It consists of favorites from The Doors recorded canon, handpicked by John Densmore, Robbie Krieger and Ray Manzarek. Don't miss this chance to get a fresh perspective on a ground-breaking band.
