The Doors: L.A. Woman's 40th Anniversary

Today marks the 40th anniversary of one of rock's most revolutionary albums. The Doors' L.A. Woman has been praised for its blues-rock oriented sound, since Jim Morrison (aka The Lizard King) was heavily influenced by the genre at the time of the album's production.

Little known fact: Morrison's haunting and vulnerable vocals aren't only the product of his musical genius, but were the result of being recorded in an echoey bathroom (according to Just give the album's stand-out single "Love Her Madly" a listen and you'll see what we're getting at.

L.A. Woman  in its entirety serves as a time capsule for the sound of the late 60s/early 70s. A time of both love and frustration, passion and destruction, confidence and curiosity, and nostalgia and forward-thinking; all of which are evident on the record. So if you've yet to give it a listen, there's no better time than now. You'll be surprised at how much its residual sentiments still echo today.
