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.
