Pretty seriously comprehesive,
on 10 June 2009
I played The Doors a lot back in my (distant) youth and while I didn't have a full set, I had most of the definitive albums - on tape cassette!
Twenty years on and that collection has long since disappeared, so rather than rebuilding the collection by buying lots of albums, or agonising about which selected albums to go for, I got this one. It's got all the best, most well known songs and then some.
"The Best Of XXX" albums are always a bit of a cop out, but let's face it. Given a choice between buying five or six albums or one album with 34 songs, some of us will just go for the easy way out.
The Doors were an iconic band and this is a jolly fine record of a distinguished career.
