The second Doors album \”Strange Days\” was recorded during May to August 1967 at Sunset Sound Recorders and released the following month housed in a weirdly wonderful cover depicting a group of street performers. The location was Manhattan, NYC.
Cleverly, the Elektra art Department did not blazon \”The Doors\” all of the cover, instead reducing the group and album title to a poster hidden in the background. Some record stores added a \”Doors\” sticker to the cover so buyers were not in a state of confusion.
The music is all very laid back and Los Angeles cool. All songs written by Jim Morrison apart from \”Love Me Two Times\” and \”You\’re Lost Little Girl\” which were composed by Robby Krieger.
By the way my album is the German 1972 re-issue, bought from a shop in Newcastle way back in the mid 80s.
