Sunday fun with isolated vocals featuring Jim Morrison and “Hello I Love You”

Listening to isolated vocals–especially from the era before studio trickery and Auto Tune fakery–is revelatory because it shows the true talent of the artist. It’s not just enough to open your mouth and sing. There are decisions to be made (consciously or otherwise) about breathing, phrasing, and playing with the melody.

Witness Jim Morrison on “Hello I Love You” from The Doors’ 1968 album, Waiting for the Sun, that was posted by FarOutMagazine. Fascinating.
