The Doors: The Soft Parade (1969)
This is the original Canadian gatefold release of The Soft Parade, the fourth album from The Doors. The track everyone knows from this record is Touch Me. I ignored The Doors for most of my life. I listened to my share of classic rock radio, and I felt saturated with the band, so much so that I never really wanted to own any. I never owned any Doors CDs. On the other hand, I thought that the use of The End in Apocalypse Now was genius.
The Soft Parade is mediocre. It has some good tunes, but I can't say it's a great record. I am sure that this was a lawn sale pickup, but I can't remember when. The cover is a little worn, but the vinyl is fine and it sounds OK.
