The Doors is the self-titled debut album by the band The Doors, recorded in 1966 and released in 1967. It features the breakthrough single 'Light My Fire', extended with a substantial instrumental section mostly omitted on the single release, and the lengthy song 'The End' with its Oedipal spoken-word section. The Doors credit the success of their first album to being able to work the songs out night after night at the Whisky a Go Go or the London Fog. 'Alabama Song' was originally written and composed by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill for their opera Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny (Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny); 'Back Door Man' was a Howlin' Wolf cover. 'The End''s Oedipal climax was first performed live at the Whisky A Go Go and The Doors were thrown out as a result of lead vocalist Jim Morrison screaming 'Mother...I want to fuck you!' near the climax of the song.
The album was a huge success in the band's native US, peaking at #2 on the chart and has gone on to achieve multi-platinum status.
