Album Notes

Jim Morrison on The Doors

“Our first album, which a lot of people like, has a certain unity of mood, it has an intensity about it, because it was the first album we'd recorded. And we did it in a couple of weeks; it came after a year of almost total performance, every night. We were really fresh and intense and together. Subsequent albums have been harder, but that's a natural thing.”
