I thought I was the only one who thought this was terrible. I appreciate the hard work it went into making this. Yet, They chopped the song and took away its uniqueness.
Jim Morrison would not be happy.
I can not believe that John Densmore took part in it.
John Densmore personally did the audio and video edit (drummers seem to have a great sense of rhythm, pacing and timing).
Robby was IN the video and loves it.
Ray was supposed to be in the video, but couldn't get down to LA the weekend we shot it. He loves it and approved the audio and video edits.
Jac Holzman, who signed The Doors, is in the video.
Bruce Botnick, who co-produced, engineered and mixed every Doors album, was supposed to be in the video, but got stuck that weekend and couldn't make it.
This is ALL Doors.
PS - I find it a dangerous trap to state unequivocally what "Jim would like," or what "Jim would not like." How do YOU know? Who personally can speak for Jim? Who can say what Jim "would" do? One can only say what Jim DID. And he DID approve a Light My Fire edit, and he DID approve a Riders On The Storm edit. As did the other three Doors, Holzman, and Botnick. And they all approved (and participated in) this one, too.
You can say YOU don't like it, though - that's totally cool.
