The last known unreleased song from The Doors’ vault is now unearthed. The band recently premiered the video of “Paris Blues.”
The song was originally written and recorded by the band in one of their recording sessions. Although they could no longer recall the exact date, they said that it came from either 1969’s The Soft Parade or 1971’s L.A. Woman.
Through the help of some creative editing, the song from the retrieved damaged tape has been rescued. The “Paris Blues” compilation also featured two previously-unreleased live recordings of singer Jim Morrison and guitarist Robby Krieger.
The performance saw the rockers performing at a benefit show for Norman Mailer’s mayoral campaign in 1969. Aside from that, it also includes a pair of outtakes recorded during the band’s sessions for The Soft Parade and there are three songs from the Live in Vancouver 1970 concert.
Since it is a limited edition, only 10,000 numbered copies will be sold in selected music stores on November 25. Watch the newly-released video below.
