The Doors: Mr. Mojo Risin' -- The Story of L.A. Woman Blu-ray (NR)
Movie: 4 out of 4 stars
Disc: 4 out of 4 stars
Easily the most unfairly maligned album in The Doors six-album studio catalogue, "L.A. Woman" was released shortly before singer Jim Morrison's death in Paris in 1971. Thanks in large part to Morrison and keyboardist Ray Manzarek's film school background, the band used video and short film long before it came into a vogue and there's a bunch of previously unseen behind-the-scenes footage included here. The high point for Doors fans is the inclusion of two newly unearthed outtakes from the sessions and a crisp remastered mix of the album.
Technical specs: aspect ratio: Widescreen (1080p/1.78:1), audio: English (DTS-HD MA 5.1), subtitles: none.
New interviews with Manzarek and John Densmore
In concert video: "Crawling King Snake"
