Encore une compilation retraçant la carrière des Doors, grogneront les grincheux. Que nenni, celle-ci, du meilleur tonneau, se présente comme définitive ! Le choix des morceaux est parfait, tout comme leur enchaînement. Incontournables, les hymnes "Light My Fire" et "The End" figurent évidemment en bonne place. Malgré tout, ceux qui possèdent déjà Strange Days, L.A. Woman, etc. risquent de se demander où figure la nouveauté. Qu'ils sachent que ce double CD contient "Mosquito", titre réalisé sans Jim Morrison pour le LP Other Voices, et, surtout, une piste vidéo avec une version live de "Roadhouse Blues" réalisée aux USA en 1968 extraite d'une cassette collector, Dance On Fire. À ces bonus, on ajoutera que la remasterisation, parfaite, restitue enfin à ces 37 titres toute leur magie. --Hervé Comte

The 37 tracks found here (plus the multi-media track "Roadhouse Blues") covers all of the studio albums with Jim Morrison, plus a couple of rarities: "Who Scared You" and "Whiskey, Mystics and Men." For good measure they even throw in a track from one of the two post-Morrison Doors albums. "No Me Moleste Mosquito" (aka "The Mosquito") is from 1972's Full Circle. The Doors were solid musicians, but with Krieger and Manzarek taking over vocal duties the single peaked at a disappointing No. 85.
Granted, the inclusion of that song won't be enough to lure the die-hard fan. However, if you're a casual fan but still looking for a comprehensive look into this influential band, this is well worth owning. In fact, about the only essential songs missing are "Ship of Fools" from Morrison Hotel and "Crawling King Snake" from L.A. Woman. But with a playing time of just under two and a half hours, this is a winner. It even beats 1997's box set since many of those tracks were live versions. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED
One or two classic tracks are left out, but for what you get on this double CD offering you shouldn't complain. The remastering breathes new life into the songs and the (used) price can't be beat.
If you have every Doors album already, then I'd say save your money. If you want a handy best of for your car, burn these tracks yourself from your collection. The 2 post Morrison albums are good too, I got mine as a single CD set on eBay.
May the music of The Doors live on forever.
The set contains all the usual radio hits like "Light My Fire", "Break On Through", "Riders On The Storm", "Roadhouse Blues", "LA Woman", "The End", etc. However, the greatest benefit of the set is it includes lost classics and concert favorites like "Moonlight Drive", "The Wasp", "When The Music's Over", "Soul Kitchen", "Love Her Madly", "Peace Frog", "Waiting For The Sun", "Back Door Man", "Five To One" and "Universal Soldier". The set is great for the person who is only familiar with the hits because it contains many more great songs the casual fan would not be familiar with. The music for the unfamiliar is a combination of Morrison's psychedelic musings, Ray Manzerek's organ tones and Robby Krieger's guitar playing. This is essential for fans of sixties and psychedelic music and those who thought the box set contains too many rarities and not enough of the hits. Pick this up before it goes out of print. It is doubtful this 2 cd set can be bettered by yet another anthology.
I was in a drivers training car the first time I really heard Light My Fire. Oh, I heard it before, but for some reason, its "magic" worked on me that Spring morning. My foot just stayed on the accelerator pedal and my drivers ed teacher, himself a big, aging hippie, said rather casually from the backseat, "Whoa, bro...come back to earth..."
But there was no way I could return to this world the same way. Jim Morrison and the Doors had me and it was a good thing, a magical thing, a time in my life that will never ever be repeated again. I stayed up late listening to all their albums. This was in 1981 so CDs were still a few years away. I had my Realistic Radio Shack headphones on listening to my Fisher Stereo. Nag Champa incense was burning in the background and a dozen or so candles were lit strewn throughout my small room. My eyes were closed and the music took me to places/to spaces I never knew existed.
The Doors touched my "shadow side". Our shadow side is not something to be avoided or pushed down. In fact, the more it gets pushed down, the larger it becomes and it is the unexpressed shadow that becomes a negative force, but when it is faced and when it is embraced you begin to realize that all the monsters you're afraid of, all the demons you ever ran away from are in fact, your creations. And even though Jim Morrison was able to help me deal with my inner demons, Morrison succumbed to his own. Sad thing, really.
I eventually sold all my vinyl albums. Why? I dunno. Maybe I was going through a retarded period. I eventually did get them again but on CD. Like I said, that was a time that I could never return to. There was just something magical...something tangible about vinyl.
I got this CD because I am a Doors fan and I will always be, but it's different now. It's not something I really can listen to while just sitting there. Well, I guess it's because those days are over. There usually is something to tend to and maybe that's the biggest demon we have; forgetting what made us, US.
I haven't forgotten totally. I still listen to a few of my most favorite cuts while walking the dog or driving to the beach and sometimes that 15 year old kid will tap me on the shoulder and remind me of those things I used to love to do; paint, write poetry by candlelight, just allowing the unseen and the seen to merge and dance and creating something new and weird and beautiful.
This CD is full of "once upon a time" memories. Some painful and sad, some joyful and exhilirating but still never things to run away from, but run to, to be faced and embraced once again but in a different way.
Peace & Blessings,
john, "the Light Coach"
