THE DOORS

TO DEBUT NEWLY DISCOVERED SONG âSHE SMELLS SO NICEâ MONDAY, JANUARY 9
VIA THE GROUPâS FACEBOOK PAGE

âTHE YEAR OF THE DOORSâ UNDERWAY WITH 40TH ANNIVERSARY REISSUE OF ICONIC L.A. WOMAN ALBUM

AND NEW DVD/BLU-RAY âMR. MOJO RISINâ: THE STORY OF L.A. WOMANâ JANUARY 24, 2012 VIA RHINO AND EAGLE ROCK ENTERTAINMENT



âTHE YEAR OF THE DOORSâ officially kicks off on Monday, January 9 at noon Eastern when the iconic rock band will officially debut the first new, completely unreleased song in 40 years, âSHE SMELLS SO NICE.â The bluesy track captures the band--organist RAY MANZAREK, guitarist ROBBY KRIEGER, drummer JOHN DENSMORE and late singer JIM MORRISON--joyfully barreling through the full-throttle original. Bruce Botnick, the albumâs co-producer with the band, recently made the discovery while reviewing the L.A. WOMAN session tapes. The song will premiere on the bandâs Facebook page (http://www.facebook.com/thedoors) on Monday and will then be serviced to radio the following day.

âMr. Mojo Risinâ: The Story of L.A. Womanâ(Eagle Rock Entertainment DVD/Blu-ray) is told through new interviews with MANZAREK, KRIEGER and DENSMORE as well as Elektra Records founder JAC HOLZMAN, original manager Bill Siddons, engineer/co-producer Bruce Botnick and others. The high-definition video also features live and studio performances as well as rare archival photos. This fascinating documentary contains rare footage of The Doors in the studio and on stage. The documentary was made with the full involvement, approval and cooperation of The Doors.

The groupâs final album--1971âs L.A. WOMAN, with the signature hits âL.A. Woman,â âLove Her Madlyâ and âRiders On The Stormâ--is being celebrated with a special 40th anniversary two-CD release from Rhino and a behind-the-scenes DVD/Blu-ray from Eagle Rock Entertainment.

In addition to âShe Smells So Nice,â the second disc of the L.A. WOMAN reissue includes eight never-before-heard versions of songs from the album. Alternate takes of âL.A. Woman,â âLove Her Madlyâ and âRiders On The Stormâ offer a fresh view on this landmark album, which was the groupâs sixth straight Top 10. The studio chatter between the songs is a revelation, transporting listeners to The Doors Workshop: the West Hollywood rehearsal space where they recorded the album with Botnick. One segment in particular captures a fascinating moment of inspiration when Morrison suggests they add the now-iconic thunderstorm sound effects to the beginning of âRiders On The Storm.â

L.A. WOMAN marked THE DOORSâ swan song, as MORRISON would pass away a few months after its release. At the time, Rolling Stoneâs Robert Meltzer called it âThe Doorsâ greatest albumâ¦A landmark worthy of dancing in the streets (5/27/71).â The first band to release eight consecutive platinum albums, THE DOORS were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1993 and received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2007.
