beatles vs. doors
« on: September 30, 2004, 01:39:26 PM »

I think that the closest The Doors got to the Beatles is on the album
The Soft Parade (1969.), produced by Paul A. Rotchild, where they (The Doors)
have a lot of orchestration (listen to 'Tocuh Me' 'Do It', 'Wishful Sinful' and
'The Soft Parade', 'Tell All The People' etc.)
It reminds me of orchestration in 'Strawberry Fields', 'A Day In The Life',
'Walrus' etc.
(I'm just pointing out the ORCHESTRATION, not the music style - because
two groups were very different).

This was the album where the Doors had a huge budget and they could do anything they wanted.  While I personally love the entire album, it stiffed in the market.  I dunno why.

The orchestration does not seem Beatle-like in anyway, it's just orchestration.  Afer Eleanor Rigby a boatlad of bands started slapping orchestras on.

Love both, but I like the Beatles more. The Beatles are my fave band, and the Doors are in my top 10.

Hmmm.... IS THERE A POINT writing new music after Eleanor, Strawberry Fields,
Penny Lane...? [/quote]

Sure.

But at the time I imagine it was a pretty large mountain to get around.

To me, the Doors were to one-sided. Almost all of their songs sound like,,,,,well, the Doors. There wasnt enough diversity in their music for my tastes.

As for 'Soft Parade', its the first Doors cd I ever bought. Like Chuck said, I love the album, but it tanked with the critics. Maybe it was too far out there. Who knows. Besides 'Morrisons Hotel', the 'Soft Parade' was probably my favorite.

the negros in the forest brightly colored with feathers........out here in the forest we get stoned immaculantly.....
i liked the doors for a while but kinda got tired of the dirgey sound..always sounded funeralish.
i love the unknown soldier and peace frog.i like the rest alright but kinda favor the first album.
early doors b4 jimmy ruined it.he was quite the personna.he looked good in leather and was a florida boy.so he can't be all bad.

Jim ruined the Doors? How's that? I didn't know there was an album without him!! And I was a HUGE Doors fan for a while. But mostly because of Jim. I had about 10 posters of that dude! Not to mention books, videos, shirts, records....

Oh. Well what would a rock band be without a huge ego getting in the way.

Instead of saying things like 'you probably only heard the first album',,,,explain your case.  To me, it could be 'Light My Fire' or 'Riders on the Storm' and it sounds the same. They always have the same sound.
