My preference is studio with them, as they did such great stuff in the studio, such great production, sound, and performance.

And coincidence this thread, I have just embarked on my replace Door's CD's with vinyl which for CD's which replaced vinyl, haha.... so I just found a Soft Parade in really nice shape, which is also my favorite.

Next Favorite: Waiting For The Sun

My favorite studio albums are Morrison Hotel and the self-titled debut.

I agree that the Fleet Forum box is their best live, however due to Morrison's issues they are so hit and miss live.

Roadhouse Blues and When The Music's Over would be my favorite songs.

Not a Doors fan by any means, but I do listen to Morrison Hotel and LA Woman from time to time.

As top 40 music got worse and worse, I abandoned most "new music, " and started heading back to oldies and classic rock. The Doors was one of those bands I discovered at this stage.... Light My Fire was the first Doors song I heard as it was played on the radio constantly. I think Ray's Vox Continental organ sound got me hooked, I never heard such a sound. This was when I was in high school. I remember going to my college orientation weekend with the organ solo of "Light my Fire" stuck in my head the entire time!

The first Doors record I purchased was a worn but playable copy of THE DOORS GREATEST HITS, which served as getting me onto all the studio LPs. LA WOMAN album became my favorite by far, although each album had multiple pleasures.

I remember a feeling of euphoria when I found my first Doors live bootleg at a record and CD expo.... it was an LP entitled GET FAT AND DIE, which was an audience recording from the Isle of Wight Festival, August 1970. SInce then, many Doors live recordings have surfaced, and I have most of them.

I was about 13 or 14 when I first heard The Doors in a circumstance in which I was aware it was the Doors. I learned later that I had heard their music before on the radio. My first awareness of the The Doors was probably the Greatest Hits LP that came out in the early 80's. Then I hunted down the albums. I listen to Morrison Hotel the most. L.A. Woman is a close second. I could probably make a case for all of them to be considered the best but I like those two more than the others.

Absolutley Live is probably my favorite live album of theirs, mostly for nostalgic reasons. I used to listen to it every week when I cut the neighbors grass. I had the cassette walkman and a tape I dubbed from the LP. I love Morrison's rants, between song banter and improvisations. I was enamored of Morrison in High School. I read No One Here Gets Out Alive like some people read the Bible. It was rivaled only by Hammer Of The Gods. I know now there's plenty of sensationalism in both books but they captured my imagination in a way similar to the music.

I don't like to pick favorites of anything really but the song I enjoy most is Roadhouse Blues. What a riff. I love a chunky riff you can sink your teeth into and Morrison is primal and unapologetic on this one. It's a great example of The Doors transforming a simple blues into something much more.

Two musical acts changed me from a life of show tunes/and "On Top Of Spaghetti" like songs. Hearing the Doors at age 11 and John Coltrane at age 13

that said:

the Holy Trinity is

Doors
Morrison Hotel
LA Woman

there sound was unique; organ playing the bass line and no bass player. Jim was the original rock Wildman - not just the drugs but the totally unpredictable behavior.

Ray's death really hit me hard. He seemed like a decent guy - and was the only one who could get Jim back into a near earth orbit.

Was my favorite band (ABB second) for a very very long time

The Doors are one of my favorites, that is for sure, really not a bad album from them at all. I would still have to say the debut album and LA Woman are still my favorites though, kind of bookends.

With all the talk about the American Masters' Jimi Hendrix film, I pulled out my copy of the American Masters' episode on The Doors and Morrison, great film, highly recommend it to any Doors fan. Great footage and lots of unknown tidbits about the entire short history of The Doors.

Back to the albums, one I bought as a teenager, Weird Scenes Inside The Goldmine, double lp, their greatest hits plus a whole lot more. I still go to that one on my ipod as much as I do any of their regular releases, the running order they have assembled on those 2 lps is perfect, not like a regular greatest hits where they stick them on there usually by either the year or amount sold. Side 1 starts with Break On Through (To The Other Side), great song and the perfect album opener.

Wayne, I could have writtne this exact same thing!!!!

"the running order they have assembled on those 2 lps is perfect"
I REALLY DIG THESE RECORDS / SIDES!!!! And the album cover foldout pic is pretty cool in an Eat aPeach kinda way. Side 3 is a fave.

Also if you'll remember that the records are broken down as follows: Record 1 has Side 1 & Side 4, with Record 2 having Sides 2 & 3, so that when you stacked the two together you drop side one, then side two, flip over both records, and it drops side 3 then 4. Long Play!!! (EAP does this too)

A month or two ago I posted the Rolling Stone list of greatest debut albums - and what they meant was who hit the ground with their sound most intact with their final sound. The Doors scored high; that first record showed a full-term baby and not a fetus.

In the 80's, Weird Scenes was my go-to Doors record. It fell by the wayside as I got more into CDs but a few years ago I ripped to a CD and now we're back in business. It really is a perfect Doors album.

From the Weird Scenes set, I always loved "Who Scared You". To me, it fit the same mold as "Crystal Ship" or "Hyacinth House"- not a real rocker but a beautiful melody w/ great playing and vocals.

I don't know why the Soft Parade LP always gets a bad rap. I think the strings and horn arrangements works well, and shows that the band can move into new musical territories.

Strange days have found us
And through their strange hours
We linger alone
Bodies confused
Memories misused
As we run from the day
To a strange night of stone

The first time I heard The Doors was during the summer of 1967, while sitting in the backseat of my dad's Buick Skylark. The song was "Light My Fire" and it captured my imagination like few other songs before or since.
The first Doors album I ever bought was either "13" or "The Best of The Doors" on QuadraDisc (can't remember which one I bought before the other) I still have both albums in my collection.
I can't think of a favorite live album, but the Isle of Wight performance has always been one of my favorites.
Top 10 favorite songs, in no particular order...

Light My Fire
The End
When the Music's over
My Eyes Have Seen You
Not to Touch the Earth
Spanish Caravan
The Soft Parade
Indian Summer
L.A. Woman
Riders on the Storm

my first doors album was 13. i don't think i could give you a top 10 song list - too many great ones. my favorite album is probably waiting for the sun.
i'm just curious what everyone thinks of the remastered/remixed albums as opposed to the original albums. at first i thought they were effing with history but over time the new mixes have started to grow on me.

i don't think they were effing with history because the 40th anniversary mixes are what was recorded in the studio. parts were removed in the 60's for whatever reason and now they just went back to the master takes and thats what they put out
