Here's your invitation into what went down in the studio during the recording of the Doors' quintessential classic: L.A. Woman: The Workshop Sessions features eight never-before-heard versions of songs from the Doors' 1971 album and a never-before-heard song, –She Smells So Nice," which captures the band joyfully barreling through a full-throttle original before segueing into the blues standard –Rock Me." As the song closes, Jim Morrison can be heard chanting, –Mr. Mojo Risin," an anagram of his name that was made famous during the bridge of –L.A. Woman." The track was recently discovered by producer Bruce Botnick while reviewing the L.A. Woman session tapes.
Alternate takes of –The Changeling," –Love Her Madly," –Cars Hiss By My Window," –L.A. Woman," –The Wasp (Texas Radio and the Big Beat)," –Been Down So Long" and –Riders On The Storm" offer a fresh view on this landmark release, which was the group's last album and sixth straight Top 10.
