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 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

It's got a dreamy quality and Krieger's guitar work is very special. I'll have another listen tonight and perhaps reassess my opinion. I remember loving The River Told Me when I was a kid.

Love that track! But I like or love every track on the first 3 albums I think. And Morrison Hotel. Quite a run! There are a couple of clunkers on Soft Parade for me.

My mistake, it's called Yes, The River Knows. Lovely song.

The message got across somehow :) I like Summer's Almost Gone on there a lot too.

It's quite a dreamy album. I have changed my mind - it's better than The Soft Parade.

This is good. He sounds a bit worse for wear.

This must have been one of the last concerts. New Orleans was the final one. Very drunken LA Woman at around 5 minutes.

Hated those fuckin' C120 cassettes. Always getting mangled or snapped. Anyway, WAY off-topic. :smile:
