Discography: Doors

The Doors still have a huge following and pick up new converts despite not putting out any new music since 1978.  I was in Paris recently and regret that I didn't get to Jim Morrison's grave.  I have it on my list of "things to do" if I am fortunate enough to make it back to that great country.  Here is a review of the Doors' album catalog:

1967:  The Doors (#2)  Of course, one of the classics of all-time.
           Strange Days (#3)
1968:  Waiting for the Sun (#1)
1969:  The Soft Parade (#6)
1970:  Morrison Hotel (#4)
1971:  L.A. Woman (#1)
          Other Voices (#31)
1972:  Full Circle (#68)
1978:  An American Prayer (#54)
Live Albums:
1970:  Absolutely Live (#8)
1983:  Alive, She Cried (#32)
1987:  Live at the Hollywood Bowl (#154)

1972  Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine (#55)
