    His "storytelling" started to wear thin as the years passed by. I mean how many times we had to hear "Dionysus", "Shaman", "Aquarian age", "Dark irish drunk Jimbo", "We have to talk about LSD", "right there at miami, men" etc.....

    He promoted the morrison myth to such an extent that a lot of people think that jim alone was the doors, which obviously is not true. They needed each other.

    Well, when everyone dunks on you for anything you do outside of playing keyboards in that one band, you learn pretty quick what everyone wants to hear about, and when it covers less than a decade of your life, things get a little repetitive. It happens.

    Thats why i prefer watching an interview with robby krieger. I mean, the three of them (him, ray and john) did delve on the "lizard king" to various degrees, but i remember times where robby had enough and clarified a lot of things that he gets throwned at. Too bad he's too laid back to be morw upfront.

    "let's reinvent the gods, all the myths of the ages" Ray, create the myth, sure he was an storyteller, he knew his business and meanwhile kept the doors alive

    I have heard he does a lot of that in his book, at least.

    Alive in skateboards and sneakers. The "Myth" got boring and turned jim into a clown and the doors into laughing stocks.

    that's true but the management made onesies, sneakers, etc and all doors agreed that, not ray's fault. remember robby on that skateboard?

    I would take Robbie singing over any aspect of Ray as vocalist (see Runnin' Blue from Soft Parade)

    It occurred to me that had the Doors included Paris Blues in whatever 50th set it pertains to (I admit I thought it was a LA Woman outtake but some of you guys say it's not) that set would surely have sold more physical copies than it did without Paris Blues. Could they have done better financially than they will when they print this incoherent mishmash of a RSD release?

    I agree. I think people conflate his story telling with his skills as a historian. I think he was good at sculpting actual events into a dramatic account, with plenty of poetic licence. He was very entertaining in just about every interview with him that I have watched, listened to or read. Compare him with Robby being interviewed - he is like your friend's awkward older brother who spends most of his time by himself. However if I had to refer to Ray's book or Robby's book as a Doors historical reference, I'd pick Robby's...

    ...and I haven't even read it.

    Translucent Blues is really cool.

    the suggested price of the RSD release is 28.99; the LAW box was between 50 - 60 USD (Soft parade was cheaper), so for sure they have more profit in that way

    btw agreed with Translucent blues, is very cool

    I've never listened to that. I'll have to hunt it down!

    I quite enjoy "The Piano Poems: Live From San Francisco" with Ray and Michael McClure. I bought it on a whim years ago from their site and it was a surprising joy. It took me a few plays to get over the beat poetry vibe - something I found pretty cringe inducing. However once I got over myself, I actually really enjoyed it! I've tried to get friends into it but they found the album embarrassing. Not for everyone - but it does grow on you!!!

    I really like Robby's Paris Blues painting and would purchase a signed print from the site if that was an option. It's like looking up at the Eiffel Tower from the body to the neck of the fretboard of a guitar.

    Surely this isn't some kind of promo with the audio from the official release?

    No they weren't thoughtful enough to put back door man on the blues compilation. Just 2 songs is enough, who wants to hear a complete tape when you can chop it up. Hopefully they have added motorbikes too

    If that is the sound quality of the RSD release, they better warn people up front that quality "might not be perfect" ... otherwise there will be a flood of unhappy buyers
