4.0 out of 5 stars "A Classic Rock Salute To The Doors" July 10, 2014
Format:Audio CD
First off readers let me say that I do not like cover bands, cover albums, tribute albums and compilation albums. I have always felt they should be considered a separate genre and that they usually do a disservice to the original composers and bands. After listening to "A Classic Rock Salute To The Doors" though I am rethinking those thoughts. It is hard to cover every song here, there are 16 of their greatest hits, so I will try to give an over view of what I think is important. I will leave the final decision up to you as to how good it really is after you listen to it.

I was fortunate enough to see 'The Doors', 3 times, once at Cobo Hall in Detroit. They were a very unassuming band with almost no equipment. They used no special effects, fireworks, light shows or anything other than themselves, a few instruments and only a couple amps and speakers. The stage was pretty empty even by the standards of the 1960's. What they lacked in equipment they made up by how tight and cohesive they were as a group when they were all in sync with each other and halfway sober. Jim Morrison usually took all eyes off the other 3 members but make no mistake that without them Jim Morrison would probably have become another undiscovered rock star.

Several of the guests on this album most likely knew 'The Doors' back in the day and are by all rights are `Superstars' themselves. More than 42 of rocks greatest classic 'Superstars' showed up to play on this album. That's a lot of "tribute" to any person or group and shows the love and respect they all had for 'The Doors' and their music. By my count there are at least 7 tribute albums out there for `The Doors' but from where I sit this is probably the only one that should matter. The 16 well done tracks on this album are:

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rockers Salute The Doors June 28, 2014
Format:Audio CD
There's two ways of looking at this CD, the first, a tribute by classic rock artists who were contemporaries of The Doors paying homage to The Doors, hence the name "Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Salute to The Doors." Or it can be looked at as an example of what became wrong with classic rock which led to the back to basics approach of grunge and alternative rock.

"Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Salute to The Doors" starts out with jazzier versions of "L.A. Woman" and "Love Me Two Times" that really gives the songs a new perspective. Edgar Winters vocals on "The Crystal Ship add a haunting quality that makes the song his own while still paying tribute to The Doors. The same can be said for David Johansen's vocals on "People Are Strange" (which immediately follows "The Crystal Ship") and Johansen's vocals have the carnival side-show barker quality of "People Are Strange". "Break On Through" is a nearly indestructible rock classic that seems to fare well and above no matter what genre of music or musician covers it.

Into every review a little rain must fall. "Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Salute to The Doors" takes a more guitar hero approach to The Doors then The Doors ever did, and when an organ is added it sounds more like a Wurlitzer organ from your local roller rink sound that was widely parodied in the 60's, for this reason a lot of these covers add the patina of age that doesn't exist in The Doors sound. Then there are a couple of missteps that detract from the covers. One is Keith Emerson's intro for "People Are Strange".
