Album of the Day
THIS IS THE NODE AOD FULL TEMPLATE
With the post-Jim Morrison OTHER VOICES reaching the Top 40 and a successful U.S. tour behind them, surviving Doors John Densmore, Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek returned to the studio in 1972 to begin recording FULL CIRCLE, which came out that summer. From their earliest days, the band relished the chance to broaden the sound of rock, and that's manifest here in the jazz-influenced arrangements on several songs like "Verdilac" and "The Piano Bird" (both of which feature saxophonist/flutist Charles Lloyd). The group's final charting single, “The Mosquito,” also shows their taste for the unusual – and in its closing jam, the trio's matchless cohesion as instrumentalists. Recently reissued after many years of undeserved obscurity, FULL CIRCLE brings the legendary band's studio career to a graceful close.
