Morrison Hotel — The Doors

Alternate sleeve:Morrison Hotel

Production: Paul A Rothchild

  • Peace Frog
  • Blue Sunday
  • Ship of Fools

Side 2: Morrison Hotel

Presumably it was deliberate that this disc is 75007 when the first Doors album was 74007.

Spanish issue of this (from the Franco era) substitutes 'Not to Touch the Earth' for 'Peace Frog'. Amazing that the Spanish authorities understood the subject of the song!

Elektra EKS 75009 (Stereo)

Side 1

  • Light My Fire

  • Roadhouse Blues

Side 2

  • Touch Me
  • Love Me Two Times
  • You're Lost, Little Girl
  • Hello, I Love You
  • Land Ho
  • Wild Child
  • Unknown Soldier

Another discographical anomoly.

This catalogue number seems unoccupied expect for its use in Venezuela for the 'Doors 13' album which bears a different cover to the worldwide release on EKS 74079. The back of the Venezuelan LP features the photo from the front of the other version.

It is likely that Doors 13 was originally intended for this catalogue number world-wide. The change would have been made to reduce the cover price, as the 5000 series sold for a dollar more than the 4000 series.

I suggested to Jac that the Venezuelans didn't get the memo about the change. He just said that they did ... and didn't look happy.


Whales and Nightingales — Judy Collins

  • Cars Hiss by my Window
  • L A Woman
  • L'America
  • Hyacinth House
  • Crawling King Snake
  • The Wasp (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)
  • Riders on the Storm

The magic between the Doors and Paul Rothchild seemes to have run out as the sessions for this album began. The production was handed over to Bruce Botnick who took the band over to their rehearsal studio with a set of equipment to record and they moved 'down' from 16 to 8 tracks.

Early copies of this album have a multi-part sleeve with a die-cut clear window in the front and rounded edges to the outer cover.

The Elektra billboard on Sunset, which promoted this album, was directly opposite the site where the original billboard to promote the first Doors album was placed.

The storm effects on 'Riders on the Storm' came from the Elektra sound effects library. Bruce Botnick remembers that he just lined the two tapes up (Doors 8-track and SFX tape), pressed play and 'it just happened'.

There was a book of the same name by Jack S Margolis and Richard Clorfene. Neither that nor this album were intended to be taken seriously. For some reason the widespread legalisation of pot that this album predicted has been taking a long time to arrive. This disc was origianlly supposed to be EKS 74090 (an acetate with this number exists and has been seen on eBay) and also exists as a a boxed set number CGG-1 which was produced for promotional purposes and included the book along with an abridged version of the disc.

Curt had been a member of the Association and Millenium and was a demon vocal arranger. He was signed to Elektra in 1971 and warned Jac Holzman that his album would take a long time to produce. It finally came out in 1973, which explains the out-of-sequence catalogue number.
