JIM MORRISON REMEMBERED

It was 47 years ago today (July 3rd, 1971) that Jim Morrison was found dead in the bathtub of his apartment in Paris, France by his longtime companion, Pamela Courson. The local coroner ruled the official cause of death for the 27-year-old Doors frontman as “heart attack induced by respiratory problems.” Morrison was buried in Paris’s Pere Lachaise Cemetery on July 9th of that year. James Riordan, the co-author of Break On Through: The Life And Death Of Jim Morrison, told us that relocating to France was a natural progression for Jim Morrison — artist: “So, when he went to Paris it was the idea of, ‘Here is a new place. A place for artists, a place I can work on my poetry. I mean, what better place to write poetry than Paris? And I can explore new avenues in my thinking.’ And in his mind, I think, get himself together.”

Coming on September 14th is the Doors’ Waiting For The Sun – 50th Anniversary Reissue. The two-CD / single LP collection features a new version of the album’s original stereo mix on both CD and 180-gram vinyl LP, which has been newly remastered from the original master tapes by the Doors’ longtime engineer/producer Bruce Botnick. The set also includes “a second disc of 14 completely unreleased tracks: nine recently discovered ‘rough mixes’ from the album recording sessions and five live songs from a 1968 Copenhagen show.”

In commemoration of “Hello, I Love You” topping the Billboard Hot 100 for two weeks beginning on August 3rd, 1968, the band will issue a new seven-inch version of the single with its B-side “Love Street.” According to the press release, “For this anniversary release, Rhino will use mono radio mixes of the songs that were given exclusively to radio stations for airplay in 1968. This version of ‘Hello, I Love You’ was first available last year as part of The Singles CD collection and is making its vinyl debut here, while the ‘Love Street’ mix is being released commercially for the first time.”

Out now on DVD and Blu-ray is the Doors’ legendary self-produced film, Feast Of Friends. The infamous unfinished movie, which was shelved due to legal issues surrounding the Morrison estate, was only ever seen at a few film festivals and was never officially released. The film was funded by the band and helmed by friend and fellow film graduate Paul Ferrara, with the movie’s footage farmed out to numerous Doors documentaries over the past 45 years. The recent DVD/ Blu-ray marks its first sanctioned release.
