Product Details
Performer Notes
  • The Doors: Jim Morrison (vocals), Robby Krieger (guitar), Ray Manzarek (keyboards, marimba), John Densmore (drums).
  • Additional personnel: Douglas Lubahn (bass).
  • Recorded at Sunset Sound Recorders, Hollywood, California.
  • The Doors' second album redefined their uncompromising art. The disturbing timbre of Ray Manzarek's organ work provided the musical cloak through which guitarist Robbie Kreiger and vocalist Jim Morrison projected. Few singers in rock possessed his authority, where every nuance and inflection bore an emotional intensity. STRANGE DAYS contains some of the quartet's finest work, from the apocolyptic vision of the epic "When The Music's Over" to the memorable quirkiness of "People Are Strange" and "Moonlight Drive." The graphic "Horse Latitudes," meanwhile, confirmed Morrison's wish to be viewed as a poet, a stance ensuring that the Doors would always be more than just another rock band.
Professional Reviews
Q (11/00, p.124) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Sets the tone for the next 3 years [1968-71]....a mixture of hefty pop singles, bullfrog rockers and nonsense poetry..."

Down Beat (p.69) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he album closes with the sprawling beauty of 'When The Music's Over,' driven by Morrison's riveting vocals."
