With All Wood and Doors, veteran composers/ vocalists/musicians James Lee Stanley and Cliff Eberhardt took songs that are practically hard wired into our collective pop culture consciousness and put a uniquely fresh spin on them. Following on the heels of the critically acclaimed All Wood and Stones by James Lee Stanley and John Batdorf, (vintage Rolling Stones songs reinvented by Batdorf & Stanley), All Wood and Doors is the inevitable next step, and it’s not hyperbole to use the word masterpiece. Choosing twelve classics from The Doors’ catalog, Stanley & Eberhardt have maintained all of the Doors mystique, while bringing something completely new to these songs. The arrangements are focused on Eberhardt’s raspy tenor and Stanley’s dulcet baritone, combined with the incredible magic of their acoustic guitar interplay. With full endorsement and contribution of the Doors original drummer John Densmore and guitarist Robby Krieger, as well as an all-star lineup of additional guest musicians, it is truly a remarkable recording. Master musicians and entertainers on their own, Stanley’s & Eberhardt’s stage show delivers a mix of the All Wood and Doors record, their own originals, and witty and humorous stories and stage banter.
