Doors' L.A. Woman Getting 40th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

The Doors are updating their 1971 album L.A. Woman for its 40th anniversary. A new two-CD deluxe edition is coming from Rhino Records on November 25.

The bonus disc includes two first time releases including The Doors’ versions of Willie Dixon’s (You Need Meat) Don’t Go No Further and Barrett Strong’s Money (That’s What I Want) as well as the Jim Morrison composition Orange County Suite.

The release will mark the start of Year of the Doors 2011-2012.

There is also a brand new track with DJ Skrillex featuring Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Robby Krieger, the three surviving members of the group. Ray calls it “the first new Doors track of the 21st Century”.

L.A. Woman was the 6th album for The Doors and the last album Jim Morrison recorded before his death. The album was released in April, 1971. Morrison died in July, 1971.

The 40th anniversary edition has been completely remastered and features so slightly differing takes on the original album disc.

Love Her Madly has an extended fade-out making in 18 seconds longer than the original version; Cars Hiss By My Window has had an additional verse added making it 4:58 instead of 4:12. L.A. Woman includes the guitar intro My Country, ‘Tis Of Thee making it 7:59, 10 seconds longer.
