The Doors released L-A Woman, their sixth and final album with Jim Morrison, on April 19th, 1971. “Love Her Madly” was the one song Robby Krieger actually wrote about someone in particular. It was on the album: L.A. Woman in 1971 and peaked at number-11 on the Billboard Hot 100. “Love Her Madly” was the first single released from L.A. Woman, The Doors’ final album with Jim Morrison. In a 1980s interview, guitarist Robby Krieger spoke about writing and recording it.
“My songs are not about anybody in particular usually, except for ‘Love Her Madly’ I wrote about my girlfriend, who became my wife. That was the first one, I think, that I used acoustic 12-string on, and Jerry Scheff was the bass player on that one. He had a great bass line.”
