Originally shared by Mario Solis
The Doors is the self-titled #debut #album by #rock #band the Doors, released on January 4, 1967. The album features their breakthrough single „Light My Fire” and the lengthy song „The End” with its Oedipal spoken word section. The Doors credit the success of the album to being able to work the songs out night after night at the Whisky a Go Go and the London Fog nightclubs in West Hollywood, California.
The Doors was not only one of the albums to have been most central to the progression of psychedelic rock, but is also one of the most acclaimed recordings in all of popular music. In 2012, it was ranked number 42 in Rolling Stone magazine’s 500 greatest albums of all time.
The original album has sold 20 million copies, and has been inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame; „Light My Fire” was also inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame. It has been reissued several times on CD, including a 2007 remaster that became the Doors’ most successful studio album in commercial sales.
In 2015, the Library of Congress selected The Doors for inclusion in the National Recording Registry based on its cultural, artistic or historical significance.
