Here is a photo of the original box that contains the London Fog recording.
I wish that I could design the new Doors releases. I'd place stamps on them so people would know they were re releases and a 45rpm sticker on the Infinite Versions as well as Part 1 of 6 so they cannot be sold separately ruining the box set also the new pressing dates like Originally released January 4,1967 re pressing June 13, 2012.
Can we expect this show to be released anytime soon?
@Encuentro. Based on the timeframe, I think you would better off comparing the London Fog performance with the performances at the Matrix vs the blues covers from '69/70 when he was a bonified blues man. Regarding Ray's playing.. although Ray did not have a Fender Rhodes keyboard bass at the time, he did still have two hands.. :-) which allowed him to play the bass lines on the lower register of the Vox and solo with his right hand. So I don't think people will hear that much of a difference. There will still be a "bottom" on the Fog recording. Just not as deep as with a Fender Rhodes.
How do the performances of the blues covers compare with performances of the same songs in '69-'70? How does the band sound without bass?
@Encuentro, at this point I would consider it "lost". If it does become "found" in the future though,you know we will be the first to scream it from the mountain tops. :-) That isn't information that would be kept secret.
Hi, Dave. Is the second reel a lost cause?
