The Doors Full Circle on 180g LP
2015 Remaster: Available on Vinyl for the First Time in Over 40 Years!
With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerizing power of singer Jim Morrison's poetry and presence, The Doors had a transformative impact not only on popular music but on popular culture. Morrison's mystical command of the frontman role may be the iconic heart of The Doors, but the group's extraordinary power would hardly have been possible without the virtuosic keyboard tapestries of Ray Manzarek, the gritty, expressive fretwork of guitarist Robby Krieger and the supple, dynamically rich grooves of drummer John Densmore. From baroque art-rock to jazz-infused pop to gutbucket blues, the band's instrumental triad could navigate any musical territory with aplomb - and all three contributed mightily as songwriters.
They released six studio albums in all, as well as a live album and a compilation, before Morrison's death in 1971. Their electrifying achievements in the studio and onstage were unmatched in the annals of rock; and though Morrison's death meant the end of an era, Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore collaborated on two more original Doors albums, Other Voices (1971) and Full Circle (1972).
The latter featured lead vocals from Manzarek and Krieger and incorporated more jazzy elements into the band's arrangements on several songs like "Verdilac" and "The Piano Bird." Album cut "The Mosquito" also served as the last Doors' single to hit the charts. Available on vinyl for the first time in over 40 years, Full Circle has been remastered in 2015 and comes pressed on 180-gram vinyl with historically accurate packaging including the wild foldout zoetrope insert.
