THE DOORS released their fifth album, titled ‘MORRISON HOTEL‘ on 9 February 1970, today 50 years ago. The record was actually divided into two separately titled sides:
‘Hard Rock Cafe’ and ‘Morrison Hotel’. With this LP the iconic band returned to their blues rock roots. The longplayer peaked at No 4 in the US and at No 12 in the UK. Only one single, a double A-side one, was released ‘You Make Me Real’/’Roadhouse Blues‘ (see clips below).
AllMusic wrote: “The Doors returned to crunching, straightforward hard rock on Morrison Hotel, an album that, despite yielding no major hit singles, returned them to critical favor with hip listeners” Full review here – Score: 4,5/5
