I thought perhaps we would talk a bit about The Doors' two middle records - Waiting for the Sun, released in July 1968, and The Soft Parade, released in July 1969. Both albums occupy awkward spaces in the band's discography: Waiting for the Sun stands in the shadow of the group's amazing, groundbreaking debut and just as amazing second album; and The Soft Parade is not only a radical departure in sound both for The Doors but also for 1969, but sits right next to what is considered one of the greatest rock records in history, 1970's Morrison Hotel. Both albums are as such overlooked when discussions of this wonderful and mystical L.A. act arise. The Doors (1967), Strange Days (1967), Morrison Hotel (1970) and L.A. Woman (1971) have all I am sure been discussed to death. Let's discuss the band's middle track. What do you feel about these two albums? Should we do a song by song thread of each next?
