Doors, The - L.A. Woman
1971's La Woman is the Doors sixth and final studio album. Heavily blues / rock influenced it is the final full length release by the band before Jim Morrison's unfortunate death in July 1971. Despite a change of producer half way through (Paul A Rothchild dismissed the bands new style as cocktail music, Bruce Botnick took the reins) the album brought forth arguably the bands biggest track 'Riders on the Storm'. The album also includes the articulate 'Hyacinth House' and boastful 'Lizard King'. the mythical tale of American music and culture is documented in 'Wasp (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)'. Undoubtedly a masterpiece in it's own right LA Woman completes a set of albums which have changed and inspired the world of pop and rock forever more.
