Format: DVD
"Mr. Mojo Risin' - The Story of L.A. Woman" is a documentary film about the Doors and their album "L.A. Woman" which was released on vinyl in April 1971. The film was released on a DVD in 2011 to mark the 40-year anniversary of the album - the sixth studio album from the band and the last album on which all four members played together: when the basic recording work was done, Jim Morrison (the singer) left for Paris, France, where he died in July 1971.

This film tells us how this album was recorded. Nine of the ten songs on the album are discussed - one by one - with interesting details and anecdotes about the music and/or the lyrics of the song.

The DVD has two sections: the main track (ca. 59 minutes) is divided into thirteen chapters, while the bonus material (ca. 45 minutes) is divided into six chapters. The total running time is ca. 103 minutes.

Several witnesses were interviewed for this project: the three surviving members of the band - Ray Manzarek (keyboards), Robby Krieger (guitar), and John Densmore (drums) - plus nine other persons, who were close to the band and/or the musical scene at the time. Here are the names in the order of appearance:

* Jim Ladd, KLOS Radio DJ
* Michael McClure, poet and friend
* Jac Holzman, founder of Elektra Records

* Ben Fong-Torres, music journalist
* Bill Sidons, former Doors manager
* David Fricke, senior editor of "Rolling Stones" magazine

* Bruce Botnick, engineer on "L.A. Woman"
* Frank Lisciandro, friend of Jim Morrison
* Paul A. Rothchild, producer of the first five albums recorded by the Doors

The witnesses are well-chosen, and their comments are sharp and perceptive.

This is more than just the story of the making of "LA Woman". it covers much of the history of the band from it's inception with the meeting of Morrison and Manzarek at UCLA through to Morrisons departure to Paris and his death there shortly after. There are very insightful interviews with all major figures involved with the band throughout their career. This dvd is an absolute must for any fan of the most influential band in the history of rock music.

Don't expect too much, this is anniversary product, without big surprises.

It's one hour of main footage (members of Doors and friends talking about making L.A. woman LP) and 45 minutes of extras (more talking and recently discovered song "She Smells So Nice").

I didn't recognize any unseen archive video material on this edition, maybe just few photos.

Anyway, it's good to see Ray, Robby and John again, and listen (one more time:-) storys about Jim, Pam, recording sessions, and crucial moments of that year.

This is an entertaining hour if you like the Doors and this album. It contains some insight into what was going on inside the band at the time, even though much of this has been discussed before in other media, and some background to the sessions. I also found the new release of the LA Woman album with a set of alternative studio takes to be very interesting if you are more deeply into the music, and I enjoyed listening to the latter after seeing this documentary.

Format: DVD
Not quite as good as the job done on the Doors' first album, or perhaps it's just that the material is becoming over familiar. Where it works best, as for the first album DVD, is in the studio when engineer Bruce Botnick breaks down the instruments and shows how a song was put together. I could have done with more of that especially about "Riders on the Storm", still for me one of the most sublime songs ever. There's little that's new in insight or film footage but it's a record which sounds permanently fresh and it's great to see the surviving Doors still so committed to their music. Ever-modest Robbie Krieger is a shy guitar delight and John Densmore's sly, jazzy drum fills are essential. Ray Manzarek shows off his effortless keyboard skills with aplomb.If you want to know how Jim Morrison was behaving, have a listen to the outtakes on the double disc 40th anniversary CD. The alternate versions are nearly all inferior though interesting building blocks, but the studio chat shows he was totally engaged with the music and raring to get on with creating this near masterpiece. Thanks guys!
