The Doors "opened-up-the-doors" for many of the bands and artists of this genre and time period.

Let's start off with one of the Door's (rather tame) big hits that I remember getting quite a bit of airplay in the sixties:

The Doors are probably my favorite band to come out of the 60's. LOVED "Strange Days". Every track on it is classic. Along with "Waiting For The Sun".

Edit: I must say that The Soft Parade was rather boring as a whole.

I like the Doors too - but I'll tell you that I can't stand the Hammond B III sounds - that organ .. I hate it.

oh gawd you are kidding - you must have no soul - the Hammond B III is the best ---

I don't remember the Doors using the B III at all ever - it was pure farfisa for them - very tinny sounding.

I can't take it in every tune, but a nice B3, through a Leslie, can be a very effective sound (just ask Humble Pie, Stevie Windwood, Eric Clapton, and countless others). At one point there was only the Farfisa and the Hammond organs, and Wurlitzer and Fender-Rhodes electric pianos.

You have to remember that keyboards have come along way since then. I remember when the Moog synthesizer came out, but one had to be a "Rocket Scientist" in order to use it. Then there was the Melletron (basically a loop tape machine attached to a keyboard trigger), which is the way most groups (most notably, "Yes") got their string sounds.

What's weird is that the Doors very rarely used a bass player. Ray M. used a small keyboard to play the bass notes with his left hand (maybe a Fender "piano-bass"), but it always sounded like something was missing. They usually did use a bass player in the studio, when recording. Around the end, they got wise and usually had a bass player when they went on tour.

I liked the Doors but they were never one of my favorites. I was more into groups like Jefferson Airplane, the Moody Blues, Cream, etc.

Wildest Dreams is one of my all time favorite songs. It was recorded in the '70s but one of the reasons I love it, besides sounding great, is because it's talking about the wild popularity of British Invasion bands in the '60s.

I love Knights in White Satin too and that was the '60s.

When you think of The California-Psychedelic Era you would also, have to include many others (including, but not limited to) such as Jefferson Airplane, Journey (albeit in the seventies), and Stevie Nicks/Lindsey Buckingham (also in the 70's).

If you look at the progression, it appears that the bands of the late sixties paved the way for each generation of bands that were to follow.
