I assume that many buyers of this are going to have all purchased LA Woman in one of it's many incarnations (I have bought two) so I am just going to stick to the extras, wherein I differ from many other reviewers. I am wary of the endless re-packaging and to some extent I agree with many other reviewers. Given that The Doors stopped recording decades ago, it is safe to assume that there is little left in the vaults and we will not hear their unique sound again, and certainly nothing in the way of "new material" of the superb quality of existing material. But what this release gives us is an insight into the inception of one of the greatest albums of all time. The "alternate versions" are crisp sounding warm-ups of songs still evolving. They contain some crackling vocals, some flubs and tracks that are far from complete, but they have a rawness of a live band jamming. Sometimes they jam the blues (including the "new" track), and sometimes they jam what are familiar and classic songs. They are as close as we're going to get to a band long gone beyond previously released material and I loved them. I go to gigs all the time and all but the most polished, tired bands do it note perfect, but it is the ones who are still working through the songs and stretching them that make a lasting impact. And this for me is as close as I am ever going to get the hearing a live set of LA Woman as a work in progress. Don't expect any great revelations or new Doors, just a fine band working through fresh material of its day.
