EXPERIENCE ROCK HISTORY!
The Doors were Truth; the purest form of Rock that we’d ever get.
the DOORS – the DOORS – January 4, 1967
To hear the Doors debut album for the first time is an exhilarating experience for anyone – to hear the Doors’ debut album for the first time in 1967 was a life-changing experience.
The Doors’ lyrics and music undeniably released an awareness in primal ancient mysticism, metaphysics and knowledge of the supernatural that were lying dormant in my soul.
No matter how many times 00individual has listened to this album it always feels like the first time. Even though every note, word, phrasing and emotion is a part of him now; the Doors’ music had the mystical magical ability to never get old.
Their songs Rocked the hardest, yet were seductive and etheric with a mysterious vibe that cast a spell; a spell that empowered.
All good Rock has the ability to empower but there was something otherworldly, spiritual and unique about the Doors’ music – and this album specifically.
The messages in many of the songs of ’67 were filled with revelations of freedom, humanity, love, rebellion and change and the Doors upped the ante and delivered an album light years from what was known. “Light My Fire“? “The End“? Ye gawdz; this was some mysterious shit!
Like a good drug, it had the allure of danger, and to indulge in the Door’s mystical aura created an overwhelming desire for more – which made it just that much more thrilling!
While Morrison’s vocals and lyrics were spellbinding, the music was equally profound; Manzarek, Densmore and Krieger were indispensable forces of the quartet whose total sound Rocked and encouraged us all to “Break On Through” – and a whole generation did.
The Doors were more than a band, they were a coming together of destined souls who had probably made music together in past lifetimes.
In this lifetime, the Doors’ cerebral music triggered awareness of the opportunity to gain as much knowledge and experience as possible on this plane of existence which is only limited to our desire and lifespan.
And for those of us who pushed limits everyday and embraced the mysterious psychedelic unknown we welcomed the Doors as a Rock band from that realm.
The Doors’ inimitable quality set them apart from every other band and established an exalted place in Rock History that still holds Rock steady today, forty-six years later.
