Celebrating the 50th anniversary of L.A. Woman, The Doors will release a deluxe reissue of the 1971 classic on December 3 via Rhino.
L.A. Woman: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition includes the original album newly remastered by The Doors’ longtime engineer and mixer Bruce Botnick, two bonus discs of unreleased studio outtakes, and the stereo mix of the original album on 180-gram virgin vinyl.
The music will also be available from digital and streaming services the same day, as will a new Dolby Atmos mix of the original album by Botnick.
A success both critically and commercially, L.A. Woman was certified double-platinum and contains some of the band’s most enduring music, including the Top 20 hit “Love Her Madly,” “Riders On The Storm,” and the title track.
For this new collection, the original album has been expanded with more than two hours of unreleased recordings taken from the sessions for L.A. Woman.
Announcing the reissue of the album, the Doors also shared a previously unheard original demo of “Riders On The Storm” from the early recording sessions for the album at Sunset Sound studios.
The demo was recently discovered on an unmarked tape reel in the band’s vault after being assumed lost for decades.
