Woman Poslednji albumDžima Morisona, objavljen tri meseca pre njegove smrti, verovatno je najveci domet Dorsa – žestoka bluz-rok ploča koja je bend predstavila u najčistijem obliku. Još i tugu i radost izaziva Riders on the Storm, poslednja pesma koju je Morison snimio sa grupom. Ali čak i da se ta „avetinjska“ melodija nikada nije pojavila na L. A. Woman, to bi i dalje bio klasik, obasjan Morisonovim sirovim, blistavim vokalnim performansom – istaknutim u The Changeling, Been Down So Long i skoro osamminuta naslovne pesme u kojoj veliča svoj voljeni Grad noci. Cela ploča pokazuje Morisonovu posvecenost bluzu, koja se ovde vidi jasnije nego na prethodnim albumima. Iako je bend svirao L. A. Woman samo četiri puta pre Džimove smrti, LP i dalje zvuči uglavnom kao lajv album. Bilo je to čvrsto, besno sviranje i prikladan oproštaj od jednog od najvoljenijih američkih rok junaka svih vremena. THE DOORS – L. A. WOMAN JimMorrison’s final album, released three months before his death, is arguably the Doors’ single greatest effort —a searing blues-rock record that captured the band in its purest form since debuting. Some bittersweet lore still surrounds Riders on the Storm, the last song Morrison ever recorded with the group. But even if that haunting closer didn’t appear on L.A. Woman, it’d still be a classic, led by Morrison’s raw, blistering vocal performance— highlighted on The Changeling, Been Down So Long and the nearly eight-minute-long title track, extolling his beloved “city of night”. The entire album demonstrates Morrison’s core commitment to the blues, more fervently focused here than on previous works. While the band played L.A. Woman material live only four times before Morrison’s death, the LP still sounds largely like a live recording. The result was tight, furious playing and a fitting farewell to one of America’s most storied rock stars.
