The Doors were an American rock band formed in 1965 in Los Angeles, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore. The band got its name from the title of Aldous Huxley’s book The Doors of Perception, which itself was a reference to a quote made by William Blake, “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite.” They were unique and among the most controversial and influential rock acts of the 1960s, mostly because of Morrison’s lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. After Morrison’s death in 1971 at age 27, the remaining members continued as a trio until disbanding in 1973.

Full Circle is the eighth studio album by the Doors, released in July 1972. It is the second album after Jim Morrison’s death, and would be the last album they would compile until 1978’s An American Prayer. The album includes “The Mosquito”, the last Doors’ single to chart.

Keyboardist Ray Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger provided lead vocals on the album. Also, unlike their earlier work, bassists were used collaboratively on every track.
