On Feb 9, 1970, The Doors released their 5th LP titled “Morrison Hotel”. Morrison Hotel consists of music recorded between August 1966 and November 1969.
The cover photo was taken at the actual Morrison Hotel located at 1246 South Hope Street in Los Angeles by the legendary photographer Henry Diltz. The band asked the owners if they could photograph the hotel and they declined, so the band went inside when nobody was looking and took the photograph. The rear cover features a photograph of the Hard Rock Café on 300 East 5th Street, Los Angeles. The founders of the later and otherwise unrelated Hard Rock Cafe chain used the name, having seen it on the Doors’ album. The original cafe is no longer open for business.
Happy 48th birthday to “Morrison Hotel”!!!
