No. EREDV903 and ERBRD5105 respectively] from The Doors. This is the authorised story of the album made with the full involvement and approval of the Doors.

Woman, Hyacinth House, Crawling King Snake, The WASP (Texas Radio And The Big Beat) and Riders On The Storm.

"Mr Mojo Risin'" is the story of the making of the Doors' last album with Jim Morrison "L.A. Woman". 2011 is the 40th anniversary both of the album's release and of the death of Jim Morrison and goes into detail of how the album came about, its recording and what was happening to the band at the time. The story is told through new interviews with the three surviving Doors: Ray Manzarek, Robbie Krieger and John Densmore plus contributions from Jac Holzman, founder of their label Elektra Records, Bill Siddons, who was their manager, Bruce Botnick, engineer and co-producer of the album and others associated with the Doors at this time. The show includes archive footage of the Doors performing both live and in the studio, classic photographs and new musical demonstrations from The Doors. The Bonus Features offer additional interviews not featured in the broadcast version.

"Mr. Mojo Risin' ? The Story Of L.A. Woman" is a fascinating document and fitting tribute to one of the greatest ever bands.
