The Doors To Release Previously Unheard ‘Paris Blues’ For RSD Black Friday

Legendary rock band The Doors recently announced the release of long awaited studio outtake “Paris Blues.” The piece will be launched as the title track to the band’s vinyl album to be released on Record Store Day’s Black Friday.

The single has been a holy grail for the Doors fans as they have been waiting for it for almost 50 years. It is known as the last recording before the Doors disbanded in 1973.

The album will be on blue vinyl and feature an original painting by guitarist Robby Krieger on the album cover. There will be 10,000 copies of the album, which will be available at select independent music stores on November 25.

The song’s master copy, originally recorded during the sessions for The Soft Parade or L.A. Woman, was lost long ago and a copy was with Ray Manzarek, the keyboardist of the band.

Ray’s toddler at the time, Pablo Manzarek, damaged the copy by recording over a few parts. Those damages could be salvaged through creative editing and the band is finally able to publish the piece.
