The last official Doors studio album, . Woman was still high on the charts when, like the "actor out on loan" of its closing track, "Riders on the Storm," Jim Morrison died in a Paris bathtub in the summer of 1971
The sixth studio album and the final album with Jim Morrison in their lineup, . Woman is by far The Doors' most blues-oriented. Released April 19th, 1971 through Elektra Records, the album peaked at the ninth spot on the Billboard 200. Morrison’s poetic ardor is undiminished and his vocal performance is unwavering in it’s enthusiasm, while the group as a whole returned to their original blues rock roots. The seven-minute title track was a car-cruising classic that celebrated both the glamour and seediness of Los Angeles; the other long cut, the brooding and jazzy Riders on the Storm.
The final album with Jim Morrison in the lineup is by far their most blues-oriented, and the singer's poetic ardor is undiminished, though his voice sounds increasingly worn and craggy on some numbers. Actually, some of the straight blues items sound kind of turgid, but that's more than made up for by several cuts that rate among their finest and most disturbing work
LA Woman" is the Doors' blues-rock swan song (at least, for old Jim), and what an album. This is the Lizard King at his bluesman stage, where he gains a certain newfound mystique with possibly, wisdom" While "LA Woman" may not be as perfect as their first two albums, but "Woman" is definitely the album for people who like that hard-hitting blues-rock sound. Being a Doors album, it is bound to have a song or two everyone knows, coming in the form of three songs actually.
