The Doors - London Fog 1966 album review
Strange days indeed at the intriguing genesis of the LA icons
As with the recent revelation of Syd Barrett’s rendition of I’m A King Bee with the nascent Pink Floyd, Jim Morrison’s Doors are revealed to have been equally in thrall of the blues while teetered on the brink of a psychedelically-inclined imminent future.
Captured in fair-to-vérité sound during a pre-fame residency at Sunset Strip’s London Fog, three months before recording their debut album, The Doors are documented in flux. And while this may not be the most hit-packed product limbering up on the touchline to exploit the LA quartet’s official 2017 half-centenary, it’s got to be the most historically significant.
