Stegzy's Music Project

A commentary on Stegzy's album collection

The Doors – The Doors [#386]

TheDoorsTheDoorsalbumcoverAfter the success of the 1990’s biographical film The Doors, interest in The Doors grew. This is clear from the previous entries in the music project featuring the Doors. I watched The Doors starring Val Kilmer as Jim Morrison at Beanhead’s house while his folks were away. Several of us gathered there and watched the film, some experimented with herbal substances, while others continued dabbling with alcoholic substances.

I will always remember that evening for the enlightenment it brought to me as a youth. How music remains the common key that joins us and how sometimes there are people who, through music, touch us in a special way. Furthermore, I also realised that evening, that I had seen Jim Morrison in a documentary having a plaster cast made of his penis.

These kinds of things linger in the mind. Like a nasty fart in an enclosed room.

Anyway, to celebrate the launch and revived interest in The Doors,  the remaining members of The Doors rereleased this, the bands first album, to capitalise on the success of the film. Unfortunately, The Doors provides nothing new. Nothing new will come from The Doors ever. Unless you can reanimate Jim Morrison. Never the less, constant  releases of  compilations and Best ofs will surely squeeze a tiny little drop of something out of the Jim Morrison bandwagon. Hey, perhaps it’s time to release yet another film about The Doors….We could do with another “best of” about now…
