The Doors Jukebox

When a band is as original and unique as the Doors were during their heyday, it is often less of a challenge to name those they have inspired than it is their own key influences. But there is one pivotal genre of music running in the background of numerous Doors classics: that of course, is the blues. Jim Morrison loved the dark recordings of Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker almost as much as he did the novels of Huxley, Kerouac and Joyce, or the poetry of Rimbaud and Blake. And with Ray Manzerek growing up on the south side of Chicago, home of electric blues, the band had a common thread to indulge in their songwriting.
But co-existing on this compilation with the scorching blues records of the names above and many others from a similar impulse, are songs by Kurt Weill and George Gershwin, free jazz from Ornette Coleman and Thelonius Monk,and primal rock n’ roll performances by Elvis Presley. Doors member were heavily informed by these names and many others, and this selection acts as a fitting tribute to both a band who knew where to look for inspiration and a selection of artists who were so powerful in their chosen field they had the balls – albeit unknowingly - to influence one of the finest band this world has ever witnessed.
