THE DOORS TO RELEASE TWO HOURS OF UNRELEASED OUTTAKES

Ahead of this year’s 50th anniversary box set, The Doors have released the original demo version of “Riders on The Storm.” It was recently discovered on an unmarked reel in the band’s vault after being lost for decades.

It’s been posted online and is set to an animated video of what looks to be Jim Morrison driving in a blue rain.

The hidden gems in the collection are two bonus discs containing more than two hours of unreleased session outtakes.

Along with the outtakes, the anniversary edition reissue includes one LP, three CDs, and two bonus tracks.

Originally released in 1971, L.A. Woman reached #9 on the Billboard 200, sold more than 2 million copies and contained the Top 20 hits “Love Her Madly” and “Riders on the Storm.” It was their sixth and final album to feature Jim Morrison.

The new deluxe edition will be released on Dec. 3.
