On our 34th episode, we reach the midway point of The Doors discography, reviewing 1968’s “Waiting For The Sun”. Significantly different in character from the previous two albums, this piece of work is a bit less coherent, a bit more muddled, yet still shines through with several excellent tracks and an intriguing departure from the sound they’d developed to this point. We also take a listen to the infamous studio version of “Celebration Of The Lizard”, the whole-side would-be epic that garnered so little traction among the producer and band members not named Jim that they decided to shelve almost the entire thing.
