      How long will we have to wait for a CD release of this title? One, two years? Almost makes me want to buy a Russian pirate copy.

            I have to say as a big Doors fan. The new blues "jam" is great to hear! But the rest ?
            "Never be untrue" is cool but not new, Songs with Ray on vocals just aint the same. And The Albert King songs one has heard many times on different unofficial stuff. This shouldve/couldve been a 7" easiley. And after first song on A1 theres some "static" in the recording. More than me that has heard this , ive read on pages.
            Nah, this one was disappointment.

              Why the hell is this the one RSD doors release that is so pricey? Usually you can get a doors RSD release for retail or cheaper yet this one is over priced on the used market?

                To all copycats: the question about amount of edition was 10,000 or 17,000 ... and seems to be answered now (also in the notes above). It makes no sense that everyone comments with his number on the cover any longer, independently how high the number is. This space here is for user reviews! ;)

                  RSD compilation album that has so much going for it...

                  I have #12,430...
                  My fav group is the Beatles...but super strong #2 is Morrison and the Doors...
                  Not only are Jim's lyrics mystical, the guys are top musicians who deliver on every cut...
