A Critics choice all time rock classic album!!
Attention: dykesfrscovndavsme
Thanks so much for your patron music review which is below my review. Your trivia on the making of this Doors Album "STRANGE DAYS" is funny and insightful. I had seen the listing for the album but did not realize that it had two discs for both a stereo and mono version. I can't tell you how funny your trivia was to me. I just hope others see your review! Amazing and thanks for taking the time to write a Five Star KCLS Patron Music Review!
P.S. The album cover to "STRANGE DAYS" is a classic in itself!

This is one of the all-time classic rock discs, without question. It is strong, through and through. What else is there left to say? Rest in Peace, Jim Morrison, and Ray Manzarek. Casual trivia: in the midst of one of the tracks, Jim can be heard admonishing a groupie, almost entirely off mike, to cease and desist her 'French favours' while he was doing his vocals.It is well known Jimbo would record his vocs in the bathroom upstairs while the rest of the band slaved away, downstairs, with each other. Why this? Morrison was nervous about it, or he just didn't like the others all that much......it worked out all right, I would say, as Jungle Jim had no problem reaching pitch levels of commitment to the songs. Try sometime singing in the original key ( he was a baritone), with him. Not as easy as you'd think. WHEN THE MUSIC'S OVER, yeah. TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, TURN OUT THE LIGHTS, TURN OUT THE LIGHTS. Rare trivia: the Doors played the same Toronto Peace Festival that Plastic Ono Band did, in '69. While backstage, Morrison propositioned Lennon to write together. John told him to his face that his work was 'garbage,' so that promising duo never came together. // This is an outstanding package of remastered discs, one mono, one stereo, so perhaps you will be able to hear the Morrison to groupie dialogue that I swear I heard last night ( clean and sober over 35 years).

Originally from Los Angeles - The Doors are widely considered to be the most controversial and influential rock acts of the psychedelic 60s.

Released back in 1968 - "Strange Days" would be The Doors' 2nd studio album. And, once again, its songs were punctuated by the dominance of Ray Manzarek's keyboards, and Jim Morrison's striking lyrics.

This CD contains the album's 10 original songs, plus 2 bonus tracks... (*Watch music-vdeo*)

for me the second album by The Doors is not as great as the 1st album there are some filler songs, but classics like Moonlight Drive Your Lost Little Girl Love Me Two Times and of course the classic When The Music Over makes this a very good album the first two albums are the best Doors albums then Morrison Hotel and LA Women as my favorites!
