L.A. Woman - The Doors

(Elektra)

L.A. Woman

Released: 19 April 1971

Recorded: December 1970 – January 1971 at the Doors' Workshop, Los Angeles, California

Genre: Blues rock

Length: 48:24

Label: Elektra

Producers: The Doors, Bruce Botnick


L.A. Woman is the sixth studio album by the American rock band the Doors, released on April 19, 1971, on Elektra Records. It is the last to feature the group's lead singer, Jim Morrison, who died three months after the album's release. It saw the band continue to integrate elements of blues back into their music, a direction begun with their previous album, Morrison Hotel. It was also recorded without long-time record producer Paul A. Rothchild, after he fell out over the band's studio performance. Subsequently, the band co-produced the album with sound engineer, Bruce Botnick.

"Love Her Madly" was released as a single in March 1971, preceding the album's release, and it reached the Top 20 in the Billboard Hot 100. Upon release, the album peaked at number nine on the Billboard 200 and reached number 28 on the UK Albums Charts. An additional single in support of the album, "Riders on the Storm", also achieved chart success on Billboard and in the UK. Critics Richie Unterberger and David Quantick have both called L.A. Woman one of the Doors' best albums, citing Morrison's unwavering enthusiasm in his vocal performance, and the band's stripped-down return to their blues rock roots.


Singles released from the Album:

"Love Her Madly" Released in March 1971

"Riders on the Storm" Released in June 1971
