The Making of Wild Child

Postby Big Vern » Thu Jun 15, 2017 21:41

I found this quite interesting:



Kind of explains why The Soft Parade took so long to produce. :lol: Morrison doesn't look completely fucked up - I thought he was already in a much worse state by the time they did their fourth album.

For all the talk of it taking a long time to make, it still only took about 6 months. That's positively fast by today's standards.

True that. In the 60s they knocked them out in a couple of weeks. It's amazing to think that The Doors produced 6 studio albums in, what, the same number of years? With an alcoholic frontman and a really aggressive touring schedule (up until Morrison sabotaged it :lol: ). Rock bands these days don't know they're born!

It takes a pretty tight unit and a brilliant, yet frustrated engineer, to record an album live.

When I was recording, we always laid down bass and drum tracks first, then overdubbed the rest.

Good point. Things can rapidly degenerate:

Here's some rare footage of them live:



It looks like his threatening to expose himself was part of the show long before Miami.

I've always felt that this got ripped off in Funkytown.

Surely better than the version they released?

However, they upped the ante from "Get down on my knee" to "Get down on your knees".

I've seen a couple of these tracks before, but not the full performance. I strongly advise skipping over the interviewer.

Most people call it the weakest album, but I like it. I think it's better than Waiting for the Sun. Krieger's tracks were more pop, but less overblown than Morrison's.

I'm a fan of it. And the actual song The Soft Parade is one of my favourites.

A bonkers track, but interesting. Very hit and miss live:

I'm a lot more partial to Waiting for the Sun as an album, but there are a couple of nice tracks on the Soft Parade, esp. the title track
