The Doors – L.A. Woman: The Workshop Sessions (2012)

8122-79755-7 / RI-528723

    • Originally Released:  6 March 2012

    • This Release:   2012

    • Mastering:   Bernie Grundman

    • Comments:   The only pressing available (as far as I’m aware). This is strictly for die-hard Doors fans. It’s basically an alternative version of the L.A. Woman album, consisting of alternate takes, plus a couple of unreleased tracks. Side 4 is laser etched with the album lyrics, contrary to the claim on the sticker that it is etched with the “electric woman”. This is interesting but I wouldn’t call it essential. The vinyl is very nicely pressed and the gatefold artwork is great.

    Hola soy de Argentina, y acabo de escucharlo, estoy de acuerdo que no es esencial, pero siempre quedan ganas de escuchar mas cosas de The Doors. Me gustaria que salieran a la luz todas las cosas que grabaron en estudio, creo que es mucho pedir, pero los fans estariamos agradecidos. Muy bueno el blog.

  2. Gracias por el artwork! Saludos. Excelente blog.
