“Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Tribute to The Doors” has been officially released today. “Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Tribute to The Doors” is a compilation of Doors songs that are being covered by contemporaries of The Doors or bands now considered to be “classic rock”. Some of the bands represented include Yes, with Steve Howe, Rick Wakeman and Billy Sherman, Todd Rundgren covers “Alabama Song”, David Johansen covers “People Are Strange”, as well as Edgar Winter, Mark Farner from Grand Funk Railroad, Lou Gramm from Foreigner, Elliot Easton of The Cars, and a plethora of others from the classic rock era.
Produced by Billy Sherwood, who also recently produced “Ponder the Mystery” a spoken word album with William Shatner that features Doors guitarist Robby Krieger on one track (see the review in related articles below). This is the second Doors tribute from Cleopatra Records this year. The first, “A Psych Tribute to The Doors” had up and coming bands with a psychedelic bent covering Doors songs. From Elephant Stone’s cover of “L.A. Woman” to the Raveonettes cover of “The End” it’s a CD that truly honors the influence of The Doors. If “Light My Fire: A Classic Rock Tribute to The Doors” has the same approach of creativity and originality as “Psych Tribute” it should be a good CD. A review will be forthcoming in a couple of days, stay tuned.
