CHRONICLING THE LEGENDARY ALBUM BY THE DOORS, ‘LA WOMAN’ REMASTERED AND REVEALED FOR GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY!
This December 3rd, the Doors will be releasing a 50th anniversary edition of their 1971 classic album ‘LA Woman’. This would turn out to be the final album to feature the late Jim Morrison, as he would pass away nearly 2 months after its release.

Along with the remastered version of the half-century old album, it will be available as a three-CD, one-LP set that includes the new remaster by the band’s longtime engineer and mixer Bruce Botnick, two bonus discs of two hours of unreleased studio outtakes, and the stereo mix of the original album on 180-gram virgin vinyl. Streaming services expected to have it up and released the same day!
“The outtakes feature Morrison, drummer John Densmore, guitarist Robby Krieger and keyboardist Ray Manzarek working with two additional musicians. The first was rhythm guitarist Marc Benno, who worked with Leon Russell in The Asylum Choir. The other was bassist Jerry Scheff, a member of Elvis Presley’s TCB band.”
“Among the outtakes of album tracks are “The Changeling,” “Love Her Madly” and “L.A. Woman,” along with covers of Junior Parker’s “Mystery Train,” John Lee Hooker’s “Crawling King Snake,” Big Joe Williams’ “Baby Please Don’t Go,” and “Get Out of My Life Woman,” written by Allen Toussaint and recorded by Lee Dorsey.”
Along with the announcement, the Doors also released an original demo version of the classic track ‘Riders on the Storm’!
