I did see that and that was a pitiful chapter in this sad pathetic saga. The whole project CDs and vinyl has made The Doors a laughing stock. Maybe they could have filled that side with Band Favourites
As you say The Doors forum is stuffed to the gills with ass kissers but even some of them have had enough. The Doors are greedy and employ an idiot who is really good at exploiting fanbases. Jampol knows nothing about the Historical side of The Doors but is a great ad man who knows how to squeeze money out of fanbases. He makes money for them and that is all they really ever cared about.
Because of the mess it is I been checking on the Doors forum a bit this last month or so. I notice people asking Jampot where Ghost Riders and such tracks are.
Just because something was known to have been done does not mean it was recorded. Likewise I am sure several recordings of attempts at tracks were wiped over as tape was not cheap in those days.
Nobody seemed to have an eye on the Historical Legacy back then.
HH was worked up in Robby's home studio so probably by the time they came to do it it worked fine. CKS was something the band had been doing probably since 1965 so that may explain why there are no out takes.
Perhaps there were and they got wiped. We will never really know.
I think the most important questions about this whole farce is one that reflects on The Ex-Doors as people.
The idea this was somehow found just in time for a 2011 celebration of LAW is frankly laughable. Jampol denied there were any out takes from LAW in 2007 when people asked why LAW did not have any extra tracks apart from a B Side to a single and OCS.
Then suddenly enough material is found for 4 CDs.
Any Doors fan who believes this story is really simple and trusting.
Jampol has no idea about stuff like this as he is too busy with his scheming rather than making an attempt to know what is in the archive and what is not. He also runs a half dozen other legacies so does not do the Doors job full time.
The Doors themselves have said lots of things regarding their recorded out put that was not true.
They claimed COTL was never recorded and no copy existed......but it of course did.
