Released on 9 February 1970 Morrison Hotel is the fifth studio album by the Doors. After the use of brass and string arrangements recommended by producer Paul A. Rothchild on their previous album, The Soft Parade, the Doors returned to their blues-rock style and this album was largely seen as a return to form for the band. The group entered Elektra Sound Recorders in Los Angeles in November 1969 to record the album which is divided into two separately titled sides: Hard Rock Café and Morrison Hotel. Session bassists Lonnie Mack and Ray Neapolitan featured on the album’s songs.

Dave Marsh, the editor of Creem magazine, called the album ‘the most horrifying rock and roll I have ever heard. When they’re good, they’re simply unbeatable. I know this is the best record I’ve listened to ... so far’, while Rock Magazine called it ‘without any doubt their ballsiest (and best) album to date’. Circus praised it as ‘possibly the best album yet from the Doors’ and ‘good, hard, evil rock… and one of the best albums released this decade.
