Looking at CB's famous list, I see The Doors' third album Waiting for the Sun is high among her "Worth Another Listen"s. I loved their debut, liked most of Strange Days but this one flummoxed me from day one. In fact it was my last Doors purchase, the way that Weasels Ripped My Flesh became my last Zappa LP.

Looking through the track listing today, there's not that much I'd write home about. The opening big hit sounds dated and a lot of the rest sounds tired, at least to these ears. Eventually I chose "Not To Touch The Earth" for its exciting build-up and its connection with their big theatre piece "Celebration of the Lizard", of which it seems to have been part. Sticking my neck out here but this may be the closest The Doors came to reproducing their live act in the studio.

Later I came to love L.A. Woman so all's well that ends well (or something).

Ramases' 1971 album Space Hymns gets the thumbs down from CB--except for this one track. I haven't checked out the rest of the album but "Life Child" sounds excellent to these ears. Indeed, the passage beginning at 3:40 is simply breath-taking. The band backing Ramases (real name Kimberly Barrington Frost) would go on to form 10cc. His wiki page is an enthralling if heart-breaking read. May the gods protect the eccentrics of this world.
