The Doors started recording their debut album under the maintenance of Elektra Records in August 1966. The recording of The Doors established the band’s large extensive number of musical influences, such as jazz, classical, blues, pop, R&B and rock music. Its overall presentation has been viewed as an essential part of the psychedelic rock evolution, while it have also been acknowledged as a source of inspiration to other works.


In these sessions, photographer Joel Brodsky took many pictures of The Doors that could have ended up on the cover. Some of the photos were later used on album sleeve inserts and on greatest hits collections. Below are some of the other photographs from these famous sessions:
