FlinterFile: The Doors- L.A. Woman

The album L.A. Woman, the last Doors album with Jim Morrison, was released in 1971.The woman was used as a metaphor for the city L.A., but most of the song is full of sexual energy: The ‘City of Night’ was inspired by a book from John Rechy about sexual perversion and the mojo was also interpreted as sexual energy. Interesting detail: Mr. Mojo risin is an anagram of Jim Morrison. The song brought extra musicians to the studio and to get a full sound, the lyrics were recorded in the bathroom. It was performed only once live, as Jim Morrison died before the tour could start. In the version of the Doors, it only was an album track, but one with a classic status. Enjoy
