Product Description

"Mr. Mojo Risin': The Story of L.A. Woman'" is the story of the making of the Doors' last album with Jim Morrison "L.A. Woman". 2011 is the 40th anniversary of the album's release and this program 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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good documentary for a "Classic Album"! Jan. 25 2012
By Stephen Bieth TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you have watched or picked up any of the Classic album doc's you basically know how this documentary is set up. It is a "Classic Album" Doc. Without the title. They take you thru the recording of L.A. Woman track by track. I am a Door's fan but not a fanatic. I buy the releases as they come out but don't collect bootlegs or anything like that. That being said I never saw any footage in this Doc. That I have not seen before. Most of the stories have been told at least a dozen times over the years. I am guessing the Doors Vault is running dry (there is a lot of film of them out there which is not common for that time period). Over all well done doc. Even if it doesn't offer much new information. The one thing I think the film points out is how big a part the other three members were to the doors sound. I really feel that John Densmore should be recognized for the cutting edge drummer he was. In the rock world I can't think of anyone that plays like him.
If your a fan of the Doors and this record (I think it was their best) I am sure you will enjoy this documentary. It's done by numbers but the subject material is still interesting to this day!

The sound is amazing. The footage is amazing. Interviews from people who knew the Doors and the remaining Doors members themselves make this a must have for those who are still trying to break on through to the other side.

Although not advertised as being part of the "Classic Albums" series of DVD's, which already has a DVD on the Door's debut album (which is equally as good as this one), this is essentially the same thing. You get the story behind all the songs, see some live footage, see all members talking about the songs and Morrison, hear some isolated tracks from the master multi-track tapes, and then see the guys playing their instrumental parts.... AWESOME.

Well filmed, well edited, good sound quality. The Doors can still play and I find them very enjoyable to listen to; it's often boring to hear bands talking about their music, but not with the Doors. Highly recommended for Doors fans and musicians interested in older classic rock music.

4.0 out of 5 stars A CLASSIC PIECE OF ROCK & ROLL HISTORY RE-VISITED March 21 2012
By Paul S. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
In the music business there never seems to be an end to posthumous releases (what I like to call "the Tupac Syndrome") but in some cases it offers fans a chance to see and hear something unique. This is one of those opportunities.
This DVD is an extensive look at the making of the last studio album with Jim Morrison as the lead singer of The Doors. The band went into the studio in December of 1970 to record new tracks. Paul Rothchild had produced the band's last 5 albums but wasn't happy with the new songs, so he quit. The band soldiered on with Bruce Botnick as co-producer and incredibly, the album was recorded in only 4 days, yet became what many consider to be the band's finest effort.
Using archival material, combined with new interviews, we get a very compelling story told by the 3 surviving members of The Doors; John Densmore, Robbie Krieger and Ray Manzarek. I have always believed that Ray was the most instrumental (no pun intended) in creating The Doors distinctive sound and throughout this DVD that assertion is proven every time Ray touches the keyboards. To Robbie and John's credit though, this documentary also highlights how important a part they played in the mystique we've come to recognize as The Doors.
The main documentary is pretty much a song by song accounting of the "L.A. Woman" album, and through additional interviews with Paul Rothchild, band manager Bill Siddons, Elektra Records founder Jac Holzman and Bruce Botnick we learn things about the band and the recording process that we didn't know before: one is that the old Country & Western song "Ghost Riders in the Sky" was the impetus for "Riders on the Storm" and that when Jim wrote and sang "L.A.
