“The Doors” self-titled debut album was released in America on January 4, 1967. Since being inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame, it has since been selected by the Library of Congress to be included in the National Recording Registry in 2015 for its cultural, artistic, and historical significance. “The Doors” holds the twenty-seventh most ranked record on all-time lists and remains regarded as one of the greatest debuts of all time. As four distinct artists coming together from completely different musical backgrounds, The Doors were determined to break the mold and introduce themselves to the world without the aid of cover songs. With original takes on Greek tragedy, anti-heroes, and a profanity-ridden recital of “Oedipus Rex” on their most controversial song “The End,” hear what all the fuss is about on tracks like “Light My Fire,” “Back Door Man,” and “Break on Through (To the Other Side)” by reliving this modern classic in its entirety now on Spotify!
