The Doors – Touch Me (1968)



Jim Morrison and the output of his band were in decline by their fourth album. But that descent was from a heady summit and there were still many high passes to enjoy. On The Soft Parade, the influence of The Beatles had Ray Manzarek’s playing his harpsichord against the backdrop of a full orchestra. ‘Touch Me’ also includes a level of crooning that Neil Hannon would be proud of and a sax solo by Curtis Amy that would not feel out of place on a Spandau Ballet track.
