Celebrate "The Year of The Doors" with a 40th anniversary Blu-ray coming in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Eagle Rock is prepping 'The Doors 'Mr. Mojo Risin' - The Story of L.A. Woman' for a Blu-ray release on January 24.
"Mr. Mojo Risin': The Story of L.A. Woman" is told through new interviews with Manzarek, Krieger and Densmore as well as Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman, original manager Bill Siddons, engineer/co-producer Bruce Botnick and others. The high-definition video also features live and studio performances as well as rare archival photos. This fascinating documentary contains rare footage of The Doors in the studio and on stage. The documentary was made with the full involvement, approval and cooperation of The Doors.
L.A. Woman marked The Doors' swan song, as Morrison would pass away a few months after its release. At the time, Rolling Stone's Robert Meltzer called it "The Doors' greatest album...A landmark worthy of dancing in the streets (5/27/71)." The first band to release eight consecutive platinum albums, The Doors were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007.
Specs and supplements have yet to be revealed, but a full track listing can be viewed here.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $19.98.
