Biography

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.

The Doors' arrival on the rock scene in 1967 marked not only the start of a string of hit singles and albums that would become stone ... Read more in Amazon's The Doors Store

Editorial Reviews

MORRISON HOTEL, released in 1970 in the wake of Morrison's infamous indecency bust, hit #4 and introduced "Waiting For The Sun," "Roadhouse Blues," and "Ship Of Fools." Insightful liner notes from David Fricke. Ten bonus tracks include eight previously unissued takes of "Roadhouse Blues, a run-through of Chuck Berry's "Carol," a jazz version of "Queen Of The Highway," and the previously unreleased "Money Beats Soul."

You won't believe your listening to the same album , I mean it!
Joseph K. Papa
Moonlight Drive has a few outtakes, Peace Frog, the amazingly soft Blue Sunday (with great work by Robbie again).
Charlie B
It would have been nice, to have the 5.1 remix, along with some videos, included with the CD.

If you want the same version of Morrison Hotel you had way back when, you might avoid this version. You might be better off with the remastered edition from 1999. But if you want to hear this classic Doors album with some unused vocals and instruments mixed back in, pick up this latest release from Rhino/Elektra. If you're a longtime fan you'll probably want to have both in your collection. I have been digging these in a big way. Highly recommended!!!

This is about the 4th reincarnation of MORRISON HOTEL (one has to wonder if in years to come we'll be treated to takes 4,8 and 25 of "Roadhouse Blues" before the well runs dry) and I've owned them all. Basically, if you're a casual fan stick with the earlier remasterings as the 40th Anniversary will be a bit unusual to the ear...the extra vocalizations do not detract from the songs and they can be gotten used to and, what the heck, the remaining members need the money so shell out the bucks (they're bargain priced anyway). Of all the recent re-releases, this one is the best as there's lots of bonus tracks (uneven quality but different versions of Peace Frog, The Spy, Queen of the Highway are good for repeated listenings). Personally, MORRISON HOTEL is probably their most variable release: rocking out (Roadhouse, Peace Frog, Land Ho), spooky-beautiful ballads (Blue Sunday, Indian Summer, The Spy) and just plain Morrison wierd (Waiting for the Sun, Queen of the Highway) that only the Doors could do. One of the reasons people will continue to listen to these classics is the wonderful musicianship these guys (who were only in their early to mid 20s) displayed in their relatively short time together. It was obvious they would burn bright and if Morrison didn't die when he did (but how could he not) they'd be on their 5th reunion tour rehashing these classics. The Doors sounded like professionals right out of the gate and the 6 remasters will live on (how many versions is up the surviving members and their heirs). Great re-engineering, liner notes, pix, etc.

Dry spell? Cocktail music? whatever!
I enjoy all of their music, even when Jim is riprourin drunk! lol
Paul Rothchild IMHO sucked the joy & life out of the music for Jim with his millions of retakes.
(Funny thing on this CD every-time Rothchild calls for a do-over Jims says "Money beats soul every-time!")
Perfectionist are control freaks as we all know, & one thing Jim did not like was being controlled.
This I think is proven by how long it took Rothchild to produce & how fast the next album was recorded after he walked out.

This latest release of the remastered tracks in Morrison Hotel and the ten bonus tracks is astounding in some places and dull in others. But one could never expect the near-perfection of their first two albums to be rivalled by the follow-ups. But still, Morrison Hotel, especially this remastering, is a great spiritual victory for Doors fans and for the surviving band members, producers and engineers.

The long liner-notes are a must read for those of us too lazy to read whole books on the doors. Indeed, if one reads the liners to all these re-releases, one will get a tremendous and condenced and poetic sense of the doors and their mission. Just because the Doors were egomaniacs, and just because they were rather primitive musically, does not mean that they were not giants. Critics often make the mistake of believing that skill, professionalism and accurate self-assessments are some profoundly determining factor in art. They are not. Many of the most competent and sane folks on the planet are also the dullest and finally the most discouraging.

Doors believers, of which I am one, having been a real member of the now dormant "Church of The Doors," can truly take solace in this re-release series. The focus on the multiple takes of Roadhouse Blues reveals not only a certain lack of technical talent, but also a wonderful and child-like curiosity and experimentalism, which, finally, is more important that excellent craftsmanship. Sorry, you classical music didacticians and cynical, nihilist rock critics.

One great gift on this album that bears retelling is the simplistic and Wagnerian "Waiting for The Sun." The song was dumped from the album which bears its name, and one can see why, because it's a rather half-complete concept.

This is an edgy classic album. There are outtakes from the studio sessions... what a pleasure to hear the songs go their their evolution.

Anyone who says Lonnie Mack did the Roadhouse Blues solo, for Robbie Krieger, will be proven wrong.... as the takes were done complete as a band, not via tracks. Bruce Botnick did a lot of snipping work on the ABSOLUTELY LIVE album, but here, it appears to be "as laid down", and clearly Robbie is wailing thru Roadhouse Blues.

Moonlight Drive has a few outtakes, Peace Frog, the amazingly soft Blue Sunday (with great work by Robbie again). Its a classic album, and a "must have" on any Doors short list.

I am a Doors nut. The movie came out when I was 13 and I have been addicted from that point on. I digress. I wanted to suggest to those Doors fans who are angry about the music being re-mastered to buy the re-mixes because they are interesting and pretty affordable. You probably already have the 1999 re-masters, (and for that matter records, reel to reel, 8-tracks, cassettes, and the 1990 cd versions), well maybe you're not that much of a Doors nut, anyway I digress again. What I have done when I have bought these re-masters is to listen to the re-mix version first, then listen to the 1999 re-masters immediately afterwords. I have always been interested in music production and engineering and I love the new re-mixes, but I will not get rid of my 1999 re-masters because I want to have both versions of these great albums. I know it sounds crazy, but I would like to have re-masters of "Other Voices" and "Full Circle" too.

Why not, they are not bad albums, just without Jim. I think that if you're going to re-master and re-mix your album catalog, you should complete the task.
