PLAY EXCERPT: From "The End" by The Doors (Elektra Records)
You know that it would be untrue,
You know that I would be a liar,
If I was to say to you,
Girl, we couldn't get much higher.
Come on baby, light my fire.
The group's debut album, released in early 1967, was a somber, hypnotic milestone - a blend of rock, blues, jazz and classical melodies and sonics. Featuring Jim Morrison's vocals, guitarist Robby Krieger, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, and drummer John Densmore (with session musician Larry Knechtel brought in on bass), "The Doors" was a seductive introduction to one of the most powerful instigators of psychedelic rock.
Songs on the album include the Number 1 hit "Light My Fire," "Break On Through (To The Other Side)," "Soul Kitchen," "Twentieth Century Fox," "Alabama Song," "Back Door Man," and "The End."
