As a musician, I've given copies of this to sound engineers as a blueprint of what I desired. Kudos to those behind this remastering -- an example to follow. The music itself? Well, it goes without saying, this is what The Doors were aiming at the time. Such a crime Jim didn't make it any longer. I can only imagine what could've been -- like a million others! Brilliant all around.
It was the winter of and The Doors had some battle scars from the past two years and they needed to find some peace and find the music once more. This record is a back to basic live band approach and with the alternate versions you can hear The Doors as loose but still tight at the same time.
John, is one of my favorite drummers and he is too good for an average rock band but perfect for The Doors. Robbie, is one of rock's greatest guitar masters and he can turn it around on a dime and then when he takes off and soars Ray, makes the sound solid and thick but he also solos all over these tunes.
These musicians understand these songs and just how to present them. Bass guitar and rhythm guitar are added by extra players but it's still The Doors and it's like it was back in once more. The Doors saw new life as they were going to play these songs live and start a new chapter to the story when Jim and Pam returned from Paris. This was never meant to be the finale of this great band.
But the road took a turn Review no. Initially released in , as this record was obviously the band's final lp with Morrison. I'm glad that L. Woman was our last album It really captured what we were all about. The first record did, too, but L. Woman is more loose, it's live — it sounds almost like a rehearsal. It's pure Doors.

According to Manzarek, even the sessions' obstacles ended up providing landmark moments on the album. Remembering the recording of "Riders on the Storm," he recalled, "We had a bit of a problem figuring out the bass part. I sang it to Jerry Scheff, and he said, 'That's really hard to play,' and I said, 'No, no, no — look, it's easy, a little easy triad.
That song became itself in the recording studio. As smoothly as the band may have operated during the recording of L. Woman , the writing was already on the wall for Morrison, whose slide into ill health continued unabated. According to Manzarek, you can see the singer's sad fate unfolding on the album cover: "In that photo you can see the impending demise of Jim Morrison. He was sitting down because he was drunk. A psychic would have known that guy is on the way out.
There was a great weight on him. Youthful poet or no, Morrison remained a rock star in , and the Doors were still one of the bigger bands in the industry — a status reflected by L. Woman 's Top 10 chart placement. Before the record's run was finished, the group would add a pair of Top 20 singles "Love Her Madly" and "Riders on the Storm" to their tally.
I wasn't sure before, but I don believe I've heard the album in it's entirety. Sort of waited to finally purchase this expanded 2-CD edition - as I sure didn't want to be stuck with a single CD of this piece. Tracks here that I couldn't get enough of were the quite familiar "Love her Madly", the classic title cut "L.
Disc two good to have - as I liked the alternative versions of the previously mentioned "Love Her Madly", "L. The two discs come housed in a triple fold-pot - thin cardboard holder.
Very good. I love this record very much, L. Woman was such a great farewell for Jim and The Doors as the world knew them. What I liked about this record is the round corners it has, I'm not an expert but I don't think I've seen one like that so that's pretty cool. I had no problems with the music, it does not skip or anything. By Marccelo on May 10, Images in this review. A someone who has resurrected my vinyl collection I purchased the vinyl version of this album so there are no extra takes.
That being said, Cars Hiss By My Window is a sublime slow blues and as you listen you can hang on every note. Their level of playing is perfection throughout the album. I'm not sure you'd get the same feel on CD and I can tell you first hand you will miss all the subtleties as an mp3. I never paid much attention to the Doors in my youth and I was right at the age of their target audience. Through this album I realize I was missing a lot. Your browser does not support HTML5 video.

The other problem is that most are doing the gram thing which takes longer to press and cool, but they're giving it normal weight times.
The average LP weighs grams which is fine - this heavy weight vinyl isn't really necessary, but it's a way to charge a higher price. This LP is extremely hard to find in near-mint condition without a super high price, so using this to hold me over. Thanks to Amazon's great return policy, I was able to secure a "less warped" copy.

Top reviews from other countries. Present for my husband. Arrived well in good time. We're both fans of The Doors so it's not surprising that we are very pleased with this product! Certainly a departure from what direction the Doors had gone in before. Listening to it, even though it's undoubtedly a superb album, I do get a slight tinge of sadness at knowing this was Jim's final album before his death at the age of Whether Jim would have continued in this direction, backtracked, thrown in the towel altogether or started something completely different will never be known now.
I recommend this album to any fan of the Doors or indeed anyone who appreciates blues music.
