Forming in the creative heat of Los Angeles in 1965, The Doors not only became one of the most famous bands of their generation but represented a time and a culture with iconic albums such as The Doors and Strange Days. Jim Morrison was a potent and charismatic frontman, welcoming controversy as he performed in front of adoring crowds. Due to the continuing popularity of 'Riders of the storm', the album L.A. Woman enjoys continuing popularity. Similarly, when epic tale 'The End' was used in the film Apocolypse Now, their first album received a well-deserved boost. After Jim Morrison’s death in 1971, the band released several albums that combined recordings of Morrison’s poetry with newly recorded music. With their music still standing as a testament to FM rock, The Doors' albums have now all been remastered and are readily available to explore and enjoy.
