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."

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 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.

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.

For the longest time this album and LA Woman were the only Doors stuff I liked for the heavy blues influence between them. This one actually got me looking backwards into their catalog to which I'm grateful because I'm a fan of their entire output now. Of course there's the popular track Roadhouse Blues on here but take that away and there still isn't one weak cut on the whole thing. I'm not gonna attempt a track by track review because it would just pale in comparison to others on here but check the other reviews and if you're interested I wouldn't second guess this one too much if you're a fan and don't already own it. *****

This 1970 R&B/rock-blues album divides Doors fans: for some it marked a return-to-form after the indifferent `Waiting for the Sun' and `The Soft Parade', but for others it lacked the quirkiness which defined the band's uniquely eccentric character and amounted to no more than a collection of bar-room blues songs.

Whichever side of the fence you're on, you can't deny that `Morrison Hotel' contains some great rock-blues numbers. The band is on top form, with Morrison's gravelly baritone never better as the band belts through red-blooded rock-blues classics like `Roadhouse Blues', `Peace Frog', `Ship of Fools' and `Maggie McGill'. There are mellower moments too, particularly the melodious `Blue Sunday' and the atmospheric `Indian Summer' and seminal Morrison-poetic moments in `Queen of the Highway'.

The 40th Anniversary remasters of the original analogue tapes improve the 1970-released material, sometimes markedly so. You get 10 extra tracks, including no fewer than five separate takes of `Roadhouse Blues', all on one disk. This is the one to go for, IMO.

Interesting factoid: the picture on the back of the original 12" album cover featured the band in the street outside the original Hard Rock Café on East 5th Street, LA, and the first-side label featured the name. This exposure gave birth to the `Hard Rock Café' international chain, but sadly the original joint on East 5th Street is no more.

This is a solid remix. I do have the earlier versions though in the earlier boxset. Which are the versions you heard for all those years of this classic disc. the doors had been attacked for making a lush pop rock disc in 1969. ((which is a great disc actually) and had a number one hit on it! Still this was the age of rock must be rock only and the boys bounced back with this classic. It's almost as good as the monster classic 'la woman' even. It's got solid songs and the fantastic 'roadhouse blues' , 'peace frog'' , 'blue sunday' , 'you make me real' and others are on here. Strangely they finally put out their 1968 song 'waiting for the sun' on this one. (and it fits in well, although one must wonder why they named that earlier disc 'waiting for the sun' when the didn't have the title song on it! However fans finally got to hear that song on this one. the remixes are good but have added some changes that were left off when the disc was mastered in 1970. this may upset some people. but these were recorded at the time and not in 2007. I am glad though that I have the earlier boxset for sure. However this is a great version of this classic disc. and worth owning.
