3 stars This is maybe the best song from their "Full Circle" album, and this is my favourite song from that album. Written by drummer John Densmore and session bassist / guitarist Jack Conrad (who plays rhythm guitar in this song), the lyrics are not very good (telling the story of a man who plays the piano while a bird sings on a tree), but the music and playing is very good, with some influences from the Santana band. It includes Latin percussion instruments (played by session musicians Bobbie Hall and Chico Batera), and a very good flute part played by Jazz musician Charles Lloyd. It also includes a very good electric piano solo by Ray Manzarek (maybe using a Fender Rhodes piano) and very good drums by Densmore. The lead vocals are sung by Krieger and Manzarek.

"Good Rockin`" is a cover of an old Rock and Roll song (originally sung by Elvis Presley?, I really don`t know). It is played very well by the band, even with some humour in the vocals.

While many people didn`t like The Doors without Jim Morrison, for me Krieger-Densmore- Manzarek were and are very good musicians even without Morrison in the band.
