A nice little effort with images of Jim, poetry written by various folks including Ed and various memorabilia of The Doors. Nothing flashy about it simply a homage to a great singer by a fan. I did a positive review of this for my old Scorpywag Fanzine and Ed sent me a nice email thanking me. I think he is still on the Doors network somewhere. As I say nothing exceptional but nice all the same.

Old fanzine review of mine
Images of Jim Morrison: Edward Wincentsen
Published to coincide, along with a plethora of other Doors books, with the 1991 release of The Movie Ed takes a look at the man in all his incarnations over the years. Interspersed with posters art and Doors fan poetry it is a thoughtful little book that treats it’s subject with rare respect (very few of that years publications did that!) and makes no judgement of Morrison other than he was a poet and artist of extraordinary vision. Some nice concert pictures are juxtaposed with Jim being thoughtful, playful and at ease with ‘his’ Pam. Nothing heavy here just a brief look at Jim Morrison from the shy mischievous student of the first photo to the world weary poet of the final shot with the ‘light’ seemingly leaving his body in the middle of a song...which is what happened in New Orleans according to Ray. The book does include several shots that were unseen at the time and is a nice handy pocket size. Not as good as the Frank Lisciandro photo journals but worth checking out. AP Scorpywag rating. 7/10 nice little photo book.
