This 1970 R&B/rock-blues album divides Doors fans: for some it marked a return-to-form after the indifferent `Waiting for the Sun' and `The Soft Parade', but for others it lacked the quirkiness which defined the band's uniquely eccentric character and amounted to no more than a collection of bar-room blues songs.

Whichever side of the fence you're on, you can't deny that `Morrison Hotel' contains some great rock-blues numbers. The band is on top form, with Morrison's gravelly baritone never better as the band belts through red-blooded rock-blues classics like `Roadhouse Blues', `Peace Frog', `Ship of Fools' and `Maggie McGill'. There are mellower moments too, particularly the melodious `Blue Sunday' and the atmospheric `Indian Summer' and seminal Morrison-poetic moments in `Queen of the Highway'.

The 40th Anniversary remasters of the original analogue tapes improve the 1970-released material, sometimes markedly so. You get 10 extra tracks, including no fewer than five separate takes of `Roadhouse Blues', all on one disk. This is the one to go for, IMO.

Interesting factoid: the picture on the back of the original 12" album cover featured the band in the street outside the original Hard Rock Café on East 5th Street, LA, and the first-side label featured the name. This exposure gave birth to the `Hard Rock Café' international chain, but sadly the original joint on East 5th Street is no more.

After LA Woman Morrison Hotel is my favourite Doors album the band decided to make a more bluesy feel to this collection.
"Roadhouse Blues" starts off the fun "let it roll baby roll all night long" what a corker of a tune !
"Waiting for the sun" is strangely on this album and not the previous one but a great tune nether the less.
"Peace frog" "Ship of fools" and the most gorgeous beautiful "Indian Summer" make up a amazing album.

Get it !

Back when Rhino were amongst the best reissue labels in the world (with access to unlimited primo material from the prestigious WEA umbrella of labels) – they regularly produced fabulous Box Sets like "The Complete Studio Recordings" by THE DOORS. Their six studio albums from 1966 to 1971 plus one filled-out disc of 'Essential Rarities' – all of them in meticulously reproduced Mini LP Sleeves and with fabulous Remastered Audio (all Stereo).

But while the explosive and hugely influential self-titled debut album "The Doors" along with winners like October 1967's "Strange Days" and July 1969's "Soft Parade" have always gathered the plaudits – for me – my poison has always been their cool Seventies output - especially the first two of the decade – February 1970's "Morrison Hotel/Hard Rock Café" and April 1971's "L.A. Woman". For this review we're going to focus on the first...

Often shortened to just "Morrison Hotel" – their first LP of the new Hard Rock decade was an accomplished blast – a band renewed and ready to take on all-comers. Opening with the fantastic Rock-Blues of "Roadhouse Blues" and working its way to the hooky "Peace Frog" and on the very-Doors sound of "Maggie McGill" – I've always felt it's been overlooked in favour of their more famous predecessors. Let's get to 'the spies in the house of love'…

You can buy the "Morrison/Hard Rock Cafe" album as a March 2007 Rhino single-disc 'Expanded Edition' with 10 Bonus Tracks pretty cheaply – but even though it costs more my preferred tipple is part of an older Box Set that keeps it simple.

The Doors back catalogue has been due a makeover for years, and wow, haven't they spent some effort on it. The sound quality on these discs has never been bettered in my opinion. If you're thinking of upgrading your entire Doors collection, consider the Perception Box Set, if not read on...

Amazingly, Morrison Hotel marked a return to form for the Doors - and what a return to form! Gone the brass of the Soft Parade and the psychedelia of Strange Days, replaced by a ballsy, raw, bluesy sound. And Morrison's voice had gained depth and soul - the upside of heavy smoking?. There isn't a duff song here. Roadhouse Blues is the textbook road song - and full of classic quotes. Ship of Fools, Land Ho, Maggie M'Gill all plough a similar bluesy furrow. But other songs conjure other moods, take Blue Sunday and Indian Summer for example. These are soft, atmospheric songs. Indian Summer sounds different too because it was recorded four years earlier in 1966 during the recording sessions for the first album. Notice the difference in Morrison's voice!

Bonus cuts on this CD comprise a whole load of extra goodies, including multiple takes of Roadhouse Blues (showing us how they sweated to get that *perfect take* (thanks guys!)), and jazzy versions of The Spy, Queen of the Highway and Peace Frog. I like these a lot, and think them as strong as the originals. They certainly show the band's musicianship and ability to play diverse styles of music.
