New single version AND video of L.A. Woman

19 March 2012 - 06:20 AM

The Doors premiere a brand new video for L.A. Woman tomorrow morning, March 19th 2012, and we wanted to make sure you all get a first look before we announce it to the world.

The video was directed by two-time Emmy® nominee Matt Goodman and includes a new single version of "L.A. Woman," marking the first time this iconic track has ever been released as a single! The video finds professional skateboarders Kenny Anderson, Alex Olson, and Braydon Szafranski taking viewers on a "Doors-centric" skateboarding tour of Los Angeles. Their L.A. journey is filled with stops at many iconic spots from The Doors' storied career, from Venice Beach to Hollywood. Viewers will be treated to many Doors references, ranging from obvious to subtle - some cool "blink and you might miss them" cameos. See if you can catch them.

Post it, share it & spread to the world...

Doors begin "Year Of The Doors" in November

20 October 2011 - 08:17 PM


Limited Edition Four-Disc Vinyl Set Includes Unreleased Alternate Versions

And Previously Unheard Studio Dialogue

Available November 25 Exclusively For Record Story Day's Black Friday

LOS ANGELES – For Record Store Day's Black Friday 2011, The Doors will unveil a limited edition, four-disc vinyl boxed set that spotlights L.A. Woman, the legendary quartet's final album with singer Jim Morrison. The collection includes 7" vinyl singles for three of the album's most iconic tracks, each backed with a B-side featuring an unreleased, alternate take of the same song. A fourth 7" contains unreleased studio chatter recorded during sessions for this historic album giving an inside peek of the band at work on their final masterpiece.

Numbered and limited to 4000 setsworldwide, the L.A. WOMAN SINGLES BOX will be available exclusively at participating independent record stores on November 25 for a suggested listprice of $49.98. For a directory of participating stores, please visitwww.recordstoreday.com.

"There will always be a need for indie record stores – and for vinyl. I think vinyl's making a comeback, actually - it just sounds so much better!" says guitarist Robby Krieger.

"Our music was made with an independent spirit, and we believe in independence – of the mind, the heart and the soul," says organist Ray Manzarek. "L.A. Woman is 40 years old, and we look back fondly, with deep appreciation, on 40 years of that special exchange between an independent record store and a customer searching for something new that can open their hearts, minds and souls!"

The collection contains 7" singles for "Love Her Madly," "Riders On The Storm" and "The Changeling," each presented in a sleeve featuring original artwork from an international single release from the era. To complement the music, the set also includes an exact replica of a poster Elektra used to promote the album around the original 1970 release. The poster was designed by Carl Cossick, who also designed the instantly recognizable die-cut album cover used for L.A. Woman, and features the provocative, crucified "Electric Woman" image featured in the original vinyl sleeve of the album.

"Record stores are a place of community; something we as humans desperately need. Yes, the web is an electronic community, but you can't feel, smell, or touch on the Internet," says drummer John Densmore.

The fourth 7" offers rare insight into the group's creative process with two "Inside The Workshop" selections that capture previously unheard studio dialogue from Morrison, Manzarek, Krieger, and John Densmore as they recorded the album in Hollywood with producer Bruce Botnick.The first side features band dialogue from the recording of "Riders On The Storm" while the second side spotlights the band discussing their cover of John Lee Hooker's "Crawling King Snake."

L.A. WOMAN SINGLES BOX provides a first listen to some of the unreleased material that will be included in the highly anticipated upcoming deluxe edition of L.A. Woman, set for release from Rhino in January 2012.
