The rock’n’roll history books have often considered The Soft Parade to be The Doors’ worst album. Fifty years after its release on the 18th of July 1969, a re-evaluation of the Californians’ fourth opus establishes itself. Exactly a year after Waiting for the Sun, The Doors changed their modus operandi with an album which was viscerally less rock’n’roll. Unmanageable, completely obsessed with his poetry, more and more dependant on alcohol and always seemingly on the brink of leaving the band (held back in extremis by the keyboard player Ray Manzarek), Jim Morrison only wrote half of the tracks on this album. The guitarist Robbie Krieger stepped up to the mark and took the helm writing-wise, as well as developing the band’s instrumentation. Headed by Paul Harris, brass and strings make an unexpected appearance in the band’s sound. Notes of jazz dilute the pure rock sound and bring a more bluesy texture, as well as some pop and even some lounge-style sequences. An eclectic mix which is slightly confusing to begin with, but it stops The Doors’ unique singularity from dwindling. The melodies on The Soft Parade are peraps not of the same calibre as those on the three previous albums, but at an era when the competition was also experimenting with some stranger sounds, Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore prove that they too can steer rock music into uncharted territories. This 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition offers a new remastered version from producer Bruce Botnick, as well as bonus tracks like Who Scared You, as well as some unedited tracks, like demo versions of Doors Only, versions without brass or strings of Tell All the People, Touch Me, Wishful Sinful and Runnin’ Blue. Finally, among all these exciting new features of this 2019 edition, some interesting new guitar sections added by Krieger to Touch Me, Wishful Sinful and Runnin’ Blue. All in all, enough unedited material to please fans and better understand this musical mystery. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

In 1967 the world hadn’t fully digested the Doors’ astounding first album that they had already released Strange Days. Strange like these compositions that sounded like no other. Staggering, often dreamlike themes. And while Jim Morrison sang that people were strange, the same could be said about his Doors: incessant changes in rhythm, lyrics going back and forth between social critic and complete madness, and huge gaps between total trance and cabaret ballads… Months went by and Morrison was growing more and more out of control. In early 1968, the Doors nevertheless started working on their Waiting for the Sun. There are many anecdotes about these most chaotic weeks. Yet, upon its release in July, in the midst of the Vietnam War, fans appropriated pacifist anthem The Unknown Soldier and perky Hello, I Love You that opens this third album and propelled it to the top of the charts. Well aware of their leader’s unstable state, Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore remained focused to create original and inspired parts. A notch below the two previous albums, Waiting for the Sun however approaches psychedelic music with the same unwavering originality. The use of acoustic instruments and refinement of some arrangements confirm the uniqueness of this band, even though it was on the verge of imploding…In celebration of the album’s 50th anniversary, this deluxe edition offers a new version of the album’s stereo mix, remastered by Bruce Botnick, the Doors’ long-time sound engineer and producer. Without omitting 14 bonus tracks: nine come from recently discovered rough mixes and five originate from a concert in Copenhagen in December 1968. The new stereo mix for Waiting for the Sun, remastered by Botnick, gives a new dimension to songs like The Unknown Soldier and Spanish Caravan. As for the rough mixes, his opinion is clear: “I prefer some of these rough mixes to the finals, as they represent all of the elements and additional background vocals, different sensibilities on balances, and some intangible roughness, all of which are quite attractive and refreshing”. © Max Dembo/Qobuz

In May 1966, seven months before the release of their eponymous debut album (which they recorded in August and September that year), The Doors landed themselves a booking at the London Fog, a small club on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. Jim Morrison’s gang were still searching for their sound and their chaotic concerts mixed original compositions with covers of blues songs by the likes of Muddy Waters, Albert Collins and Willie Dixon. The originality of The Doors’ sound was not yet apparent, but this document (an essential for hardcore fans) offers a glimpse of their lead singer’s charisma. Given the circumstances, the sound quality of the recording (captured by a certain Nettie Peña, a young spectator who borrowed her father’s tape recorder) is not the best. Yet London Fog 1966 remains a fascinating historical archive all the same. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

The public has still not digested the staggering début album that the Doors brought out in 1967, the same year as Strange Days. Strange indeed: these compositions are quite unlike those of any other group. The themes stumble; they are often dreamlike. If Jim Morrison sings that People Are Strange, we could say the same of the Doors... incessant changes of rhythm, lyrics that alternate between social critique and pure delirium, and almighty lurches from total trance to ballads and cabaret: it all has the air of the big top and circus acrobatics… Something like the picture on the album sleeve. A cabaret that defies classification, directed by a Morrison with greater skill than ever (his monologue on Horse Latitudes) – and the cherry on this fascinating poetical and psychedelic cake... To celebrate fifty years of the album, this edition offers two remastered versions: one in stereo, and one in mono. © MZ/Qobuz

Het laatste album met Jim Morrison in de bezetting is verreweg hun meest bluesgeoriënteerde. De poëtische ijver van de zanger blijft onverminderd, hoewel zijn stem wel in toenemende mate versleten en krakerig klinkt op sommige nummers. De zeven minuten tellende titeltrack was een autoritten-klassieker die zowel de glamour als de verlopenheid van Los Angeles viert; het andere lange nummer, het broeierige, jazzachtige “Riders on the Storm” toont de groep op zijn meest melodieus en onheilspellend. Dat nummer en het veel springeriger “Love Her Madly” waren hitsingles, en “The Changeling” en “L’America” gelden als een aantal van hun betere, minder bekende albumtracks. Een ongebalanceerd maar waardig slotstuk van het originele kwartet. ~ Richie Unterberger
