Album: Morrison HotelReleased: 1970
"Waiting For The Sun" is the title of The Doors third album, and they tried to record it in those sessions, but didn't like how it came out. They brought it back 2 years later for their fifth album, Morrison Hotel.
This is about the quest for the American Dream, which is never attained.
Barney Hoskyns used this as the title of a book
about the music scene in Los Angeles.
After their fourth album, The Soft Parade, was criticized for being too commercial, The Doors returned to their roots on this, which resulted in more simple songs based on The Blues.
