Review by Guillermo
3 stars "Love Her Madly" is a song from the "L.A. Woman" album from The Doors which was released as the "A" side of this single in 1971. It is one of the best songs from the album and it obviously was the best choice to be released as a single, with some Pop Rock influences, very good guitar parts, very good drums, a very good organ solo and very good arrangements. This song was played in December 1970 (before it was released in the album or as a single) in one of the two final concerts of the band with Jim Morrison as singer in a longer version.The song is still played in some oldies FM radio stations in my city.

The B-side, titled "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further", is a Blues song composed by Willie Dixon, sung by Ray Manzarek, which wasn`t included in the original version of the "L.A. Woman" album, and which sounds like it was recorded with a bit of a hurry to have an "instant B-side" for the new single. I donīt know if it was recorded when Morrison left the recording sessions to travel to Paris, or it was recorded while he still was with the band, or if he only allowed Manzarek to sing the song. Anyway, Manzarek sang the song well but with some strain in his voice sounding like he really could not reach the high notes very well. But the song also includes some guitar overdubs and sounds well in general.
