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.
