LA Woman - bluesy rock classic final Morrison studio album
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 09/03/2008 13:21:38
Their 6th and final studio album featuring Jim Morrison maintains the quality of its predecessor, "Morrison Hotel". The original vinyl LP came in a sleeve with a plastic window bearing the band picture which stood out over the yellow inner bag. There was also a poster of Morrison crucified on a telegraph pole with early copies.
The album boasts the absolutely essential, lengthy classics "LA Woman" and "Riders on the Storm", the latter issued in edited form as the second single from the album (the beautiful "Love Her Madly" being the first).
Other stand-out tracks include the gentle "Hyacinth House", the slow blues "Cars Hiss by my Window" and the slow rocker "L'America".
The extras here are worthwhile, being the very pleasant "Orange County Suite" and the R&B-style non-LP B-side of the "Love Her Madly" single "(You Need Meat") Don't Go No Further" on which Ray unfortunately takes lead vocal duties.
This and "Morrison Hotel" are their best albums in my opinion.
As with all other expanded studio album reviews, if you are thinking of buying more than the odd Doors LP may I recommend the "Perception" box for under 50 GBP whilst still available, in which you get not only the six stereo CDs but also 6 DVD-Audio discs containing 5.1 Dolby Digital and DTS surround mixes of the albums, plus video footage of the band in action, housed in six 3-way fold out replica vinyl LP sleeves. It really is worth going the extra mile and paying a little more. You won't be disappointed.
