Background: Released in 1971, L.A. Woman was the last album by the Doors to feature vocals by Jim Morrison.
The album reached #9 on the U.S. album charts.
The final album with Jim Morrison in the lineup is by far their most blues-oriented, and the singer’s poetic ardor is undiminished, though his voice sounds increasingly worn and craggy on some numbers. Actually, some of the straight blues items sound kind of turgid, but that’s more than made up for by several cuts that rate among their finest and most disturbing work.
