The Doors: Jim Morrison (vocals), Robbie Krieger (guitar), Ray Manzarek (keyboards), John Densmore (drums).

Originally released on Elektra (74024).
All songs written by The Doors.
The Doors' third album showed the band in transition, even as "Hello, I Love You" became the Doors' second number-1 hit.
The band's songs set Morrison's poetic and often bizarre lyrical imagery against the spiraling keyboards of Manzarek and Krieger's bluesy guitar. Their chart success, however, alienated them from their original audience, who no longer considered them "underground" enough, while their concert audiences increasingly consisted of teenage girls, drawn by Morrison's sexual performing style. "Hello, I Love You" pushed them firmly into the rock mainstream.
