The DOORS - The Soft Parade gatefold 12" LP VINYL ALBUM

Album Description: This album "DOORS - Soft Parade" is the fourth studio album by The Doors, released in 1969. The album met with some controversy among fans and critics due to its inclusion of brass and string instrument arrangements, as opposed to the more stripped-down sound of their earlier recordings. Fans also complained that The Soft Parade followed the lyrical formulas of previous albums, and thus was not very innovative.
