50 Years Ago Today (9/2/65) – The Doors Record Their First Demos – Check the Early Recordings

50 years ago today (9/2/65), The Doors recorded their first demos at World Pacific Jazz Studios in Los Angeles, California, where they cut six Jim Morrison songs.  These are The Doors’ original demos that they recorded before being signed to Elektra, and these were all recorded before Robby Krieger had joined the band. In addition to Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, and John Densmore, the group featured Ray’s brothers Rick Manczarek (guitar) and Jim Manczarek (harmonica) as well as an unknown female bass player.

  1. I hope you don’t mind, but I reblogged your article on my website Jim Morrison Project. I am in the process of a redesign, so the site is currently under construction, but I plan to launch on Jim Morrison’s birthday, Dec. 8, 2015. If there is a problem with the reprint, please let me know, and I’ll take it down immediately. Your article has been properly cited, and I have included a link to this page. Thank you for your consideration. http://www.jimmorrisonproject.com
