The last work from the Doors before their frontman’s fatal overdose in the summer of 1971 in Paris, L.A. Woman, recorded at the end of 1970 over six days at the Doors’ rehearsal spot in the Santa Monica Boulevard Workshop, shows a band at the top of their game. Jim Morrison, whose voice had thickened, was singing like a god and Ray Manzarek was setting his keyboards on fire. The title track L.A. Woman itself is another stunning tour de force, a blues cavalcade that verges on trance... Once again, it's the blues that sets the tone here (a magnificent cover of John Lee Hooker's Crawling King Snake). It’s a blues that is so clearly unique to the Doors: atmospheric, poisonous. The legendary Riders on the Storm closes out this final record, with its organic rhythm that’s in step with nature—you can hear the rain falling and the storm rumbling. This song remains the most beautiful ballad: an oddity whose power reverberates across the history of rock, across fashions and across eras. To celebrate its half-century, the 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition of L.A. Woman is out in a new remaster, done by their favourite sound engineer, Bruce Botnick. It also sports numerous bonus features. These include alternative takes and demos, such as one for Riders on the Storm, which specialists had believed to be lost forever. Also included in this orgy of unreleased material is a demo of Hyacinth House recorded in Robby Krieger's home studio in 1969, and alternative versions of covers by Junior Parker (Mystery Train), John Lee Hooker (Crawling King Snake), Big Joe Williams (Baby Please Don't Go) and Lee Dorsey (Get Out of My Life Woman). © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Sofia Coppola on Air

To celebrate 20 years since the release of her film “The Virgin Suicides”, Qobuz takes a look back at some of the top musical moments from the films of Sofia Coppola, like her collaborations with French duo Air or Thomas Mars from the band Phoenix.

Nick Cave: Bad Seed

Nick Cave and his Bad Seeds remain one of the most prolific adventures of the post-punk era. Since the late 1980s, the vast magnetism of the Australian singer has swirled through violent paroxysms, fulminating covers, piano ballads and sweaty rock'n'roll. As the years went by, Cave became more and more of a crooner, part way between a punk Frank Sinatra and an austere Johnny Cash.

The Doors, Jim Morrison’s Orchestra

Fifty years ago, on 3 July 1971, Jim Morrison died mysteriously in a Parisian bathtub, survived by his three partners: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore, who had worked tirelessly for six years to translate his dreams into music.
