the "last two" I presume you're talking about aren't their last two albums.

also, the tier for them is up now.

Are those as bad as everyone says they are? I never heard anything off them, do they even exist on cd?

Yes, as it should be.

Though I really think LA Woman should be red also.

Yes, there as bad as everyone says they are and no, they are mercifully not on CD. I think "An American Prayer" is, though.

Except for American Prayers is legit.

I think that LA Woman should be red for sure, above Strange Days if we can only have two

Roadhouse Blues is the most badass bar-friendly song ever.

LA Woman > Strange Days

For me the real attraction of the Doors is their live stuff. Check out Live in Detroit if you haven't. It blew me away.

Agreed there. Morrison was a freak onstage, but the other three are unsung heroes when it comes to performing lives. Manzarek was an absolute freak when it came to improv AND he handled all the basslines at the same time. Krieger and Densmore are both really underrated musicians, especially John, he was an excellent live drummer. I have "In Concert," which has some solid stuff, but I think I would rather have a complete concert recording to get the full experience

I don't doubt Manzarek's improv ability - but I heard one version of When The Music's Over in which the intro was basically Manzarek playing the same two chords over and over again for about two minutes. The rest of the version was incredible though.

I could see Morrison Hotel and LA Woman both being red. Especially Morrison Hotel.
