The Doors: A Guide
Out of print. In an era when the three-minute pop single ruled the music world, The Doors stood proud as practitioners of album art. Taking each of their albums in turn, this book discusses the lyrical and musical patterns that shaped the songs, the recording sessions that spawned them, and the cultural environment in which each work was created. A complete discography is featured. Danny Sugerman said of this book, "The mystery and inspiration of every Doors song is probed and explored". Recommended. Cond: Exc+

| 'The Doors Companion: Four Decades of Commentary' by John Rocco|
The Doors Companion
Soft cover. Out of print. Few rock groups of the '60s have been more influential and better remembered than the Doors. Led by shamanistic poet-visionary "Lizard King" Jim Morrison, the group has entered the pantheon of legendary popular performers, inspiring countless imitators, books, and even a film, while continuing to sell records nearly thirty years after the group disbanded. This is the first collection of articles, interviews, and reviews to cover the group's entire career, including newspaper accounts of the famous concert in Miami, as well as other concerts; extensive interviews with Morrison and the other group members; and even Morrison's own poetry and works by other writers, including Charles Baudelaire and Antonin Artaud, that influenced his thinking. This is a must-have for all fans of the greatest rock band ever.
