Follow: "The Doors Portal" https://www.facebook.com/TheDoorsOpenUtopia https://twitter.com/TheDoorsPortal L.A. Woman is the sixth studio album by The Doors, and the last recorded with lead singer Jim Morrison, who died in July 1971, less than 3 months after the album's release. Its style signified a return to blues, following in the footsteps of Morrison Hotel. L.A. Woman has remained one of the band's most pivotal and popular albums. It allowed Jim Morrison to express his 'old blues man' personality as it gave him the freedom to sing the blues music that he was influenced by as a child, including musicians such as Howlin' Wolf and John Lee Hooker. It has sold over 14.5 million copies.

This practice extended to incorporating vocal and instrumental components which were not part of the original album. Manzarek said, "There are background vocals by Jim Morrison, piano parts of mine that weren't used, and guitar stingers and solos by Robby Krieger that never made the original recordings, that can now be heard for the first time."
