    Which makes no sense at all, because what does Morrison himself say at the end of "Soft Parade"? "You better bring your gun/We're gonna have some fun."

    This was the first Doors album to have individual songwriting credits, and it revealed Krieger and Morrison to be exactly tied in song contributions: 4.5 each. But the balance still tipped towards...

    The Doors weren't the only ones to pick up on that Ajax commercial in 1969. I just found a copy of this LP:

    Huh. It hadn't really occurred to me that each album has a big heavy epic as the penultimate song, followed by a lighter closing number. Actually Stormwatch ends both sides that way.

    Another thing that makes Stormwatch stand apart is the persistent water/ice/storm imagery. The cover lets you know from the outset that it's a very cold album.
