LOVE ME TWO TIMES
Alabama song (Whiskey bar) and Love me two times
GLORIA … DIRTY VERSION
RIDERS ON THE STORM … ORIGINAL
“Riders On The Storm” was the last song recorded by the members of The Doors, according to Ray, as well as Jim´s last recorded song to be released (recorded December 1970 – January 1971 – released in June ´71).
According to Robby, it was inspired by the song “(Ghost) Riders in the Sky: A Cowboy Legend.” The song is played in the E Dorian mode, and incorporates real sound effects of thunder and rain, along with Ray´s Fender Rhodes electric piano playing, which emulates the sound of rain. The song was recorded at the Doors Workshop in December 1970 with the assistance of Bruce Botnick, their longtime engineer, who was co-producing the recording sessions. Jim recorded his main vocals and then whispered the lyrics over them to create the echo effect. The single was released in 1971, shortly before Jim´s death, entering the Hot 100 on 3 July 1971, the day that Jim died.
