Designed in the same format as the wildly successful Lennon Legend and Marley Legend, "The Jim Morrison Scrapbook" focuses on the life and work of this controversial and magnetic rock star and poet, and is produced with full cooperation of the Morrison estate. New interviews - with family members, surviving Doors members, friends and music industry professionals - complete with a selection of rare and never-before-published colour and black-and-white photographs offer a fresh look at the famous legend. In addition, the book will feature removable mementos and personal documents detailing Morrison's life, from handwritten lyrics and poetry to his last Will and Testament. An exclusive 60-minute CD, comprised of 50 minutes of interviews and 10 minutes of Morrison's spoken-word poetry, caps off this incomparable collector's package.
I looked through the book at Borders last Christmas (in keeping with my policy of not putting any more money into The Doors pockets, I've paid a little much for the way they've treated their fans esp. R$y) & it looked pretty cool maybe more interesting for a teeny bopper kid. Iggy's intro was cool and right on calling The Doors the only art band that was any good!

This is the snippet of poetry included on the disc. Supposedly from the December 8th 1970 session.
We can invent Kingdoms of our own Grand purple thrones, those chairs of lust And love we must, in beds of rust Steel doors lock in prisoner's screams And muzak, AM, rocks their dreams No black men's pride to hoist the beams While mocking angels sift what seems To be a collage of magazine dust Scratched on foreheads of walls of trust This is just jail for those who must Get up in the morning & fight for such Unusable standards While weeping maidens Show-off penury and pout Ravings for a mad Staff
"That's the trouble with reality!.... it's taken far too seriously! I do hope God is good to me and Santa Claus to the children! Celebrate...this parties over...I'm going home!"
