“L.A. Woman,” the sixth studio album by the American rock band the Doors, emerged on 19 April 1971, courtesy of Elektra Records. This album holds particular significance as the final one to showcase lead singer Jim Morrison during his lifetime, as he tragically passed away exactly two months and two weeks after its release. Morrison would posthumously contribute to the 1978 album “An American Prayer.”

Distinguished by a profound blues influence, “L.A. Woman” steers even further into this genre compared to its predecessors. Notably, the album was crafted sans producer Paul A. Rothchild, who departed due to perceived shortcomings in the band’s studio performances. In his absence, the Doors took on co-production responsibilities alongside longstanding sound engineer Bruce Botnick.

The single “Love Her Madly,” released in March 1971 before the album, secured a spot in the Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100. “L.A. Woman” reached number nine on the Billboard 200 upon its release and claimed the 28th spot on the UK Albums Charts. The timeless track “Riders on the Storm” also achieved significant chart success.

Renowned critics, including Richie Unterberger and David Quantick, have hailed “L.A. Woman” as one of the Doors’ premier albums. They cite Morrison’s compelling vocal performance and the band’s deliberate return to the blues-rock roots as distinguishing features of this iconic work.
