2CD set. Remastered in 2015, and on CD for the first time ever officially with rare BONUS track "Treetrunk"! Two post-Jim Morrison albums from 1971 and 1972 by the surviving three members.

This European import CD contains both Doors' LPs Other Voices (1971) and Full Circle (1972). John Densmore (drums/vocals), Ray Manzarek (keyboards/bass pedals/vocals) and Robbie Krieger (guitar/vocals) anticipated having new material readied once Jim Morrison returned from his sabbatical in Paris, France. As his vocals would not be forthcoming, the remaining three-piece lineup forged ahead to complete the tracks. With stylistic continuity bleeding over from L.A. Woman, Other Voices is considered the most cohesive of the pair with primary entries including the blues-fueled opener "In the Eye of the Sun" and the esoteric love song "Ships w/ Sails." Listen for guest musicians Ray Neapolitan (electric bass), Willie Ruff (standup acoustic bass), and Francisco Aguabella's unmistakable conga and percussion. The Doors prove their capabilities as a no-nonsense rock & roll trio on the raucous "Tightrope Ride." Manzarek does a tremendous job on Krieger's humbling "Wandering Musician," exemplifying a versatility that was often overshadowed in the Doors' earlier configuration. Like the aforementioned "Tightrope Ride," the concluding cut "Hang on to Your Life" bears philosophical queries that could be rooted in Morrison's conspicuous absence. Other Voices made it into the Top 40 pop album charts, although Full Circle (1972) – the last full-length effort from Densmore, Krieger and Manzarek – did not. One reason commonly cited when contrasting the two post-Morrison platters is Full Circle' s comparatively shorter and less productive maturation process. There are a couple of excellent cuts, such as "Verdilac." It is one of two selections with guest Charles Lloyd (flute/tenor sax) who also contributes to "The Piano Bird." The latter was written by Manzarek and bassist Jack Conrad. One incidental side note, still unissued in the digital domain is the Full Circle era B-side title "Tree Trunk" – which could only be found on U.K. editions of the "Get Up and Dance" 45 rpm.

Review by Lindsay Planer, Allmusic.com

No Doors fan should miss this opportunity to pick up the final two studio albums remastered on a 2CD set for under a tenner. If you don't already know about these two albums, where have you been hiding? Being "buried" by the three surviving members for over 40 years, you might think they are terrible records, but they are anything but. Sure, the charisma and enigmatic presence of Morrison is sorely missed and the vocals are not in the same league as Morrison's original vocals as they lack that distinct personality but they're more than passable and just about get the job done. No one is going to hear any of these songs and ask "who is the singer, I must seek out more of their records" but taken apiece with the music the vocals blend in well. If anything I wish Ray and Robby had sung harmony together more. On their own the vocals are weak but together they do a fair job.

Musically, these records are as good as the original six albums with Morrison. Yes, I did say that! If anything, with that dark brooding atmosphere now gone, the surviving members were able to further develop their music into different areas, specifically jazz. As a long-time Doors fanatic I consider these two albums an essential part of The Doors canon and nothing to be scoffed at or to feel awkward about.

Lyrically there is little to compare with Morrison's poetic verse, true enough, but to dismiss these songs as trite and inert would also be a mistake. If anything there is more than a little playfulness and good humour in the lyrics. If I had to fault their stellar efforts to do the unthinkable, carrying on once their front man had exited the Earth, it would be that the lyrical concerns are quite dated when heard today, especially on Full Circle where the Age Of Aquarius ideals and statements have rendered the songs somewhat time-locked. Nixon had visited China recently and Ray's lyrical take on the East/West relations ("The Peking King And The New York Queen") is probably best forgotten.

Given the incredible musicianship on display here, it might be difficult to ponder the reluctance to let these two albums be reissued until now. Well, my theory for this stance and the change witnessed today is down to Ray Manzarek's long-held belief that the legacy of The Doors should be tightly contained within the myth of Morrison himself. Ray spent several decades propagating the myth that Jim might still be alive and how Jim's (temporary) absence fed into the mysterious of The Doors music and aesthetic. Ray passed away 2 years ago and with his passing there has been a new light cast on The Doors inter-personal relationships. It's perhaps no surprise then that we now have these two albums reissued, which never were part of the Morrison era myths and legend.

About time too!
