Sort of an offshoot of the Butts Band days John & Robby teamed up in 1983 to cover Bob Marley's Kinky Reggae under the banner of 'Krieger-Densmore Reggae Bonanza' which was released as a 12" single by Rhino with the B side of an old Butts Band cover of Marley's Get Up Stand Up from 1975.
Kinky Reggae (b/w) Get Up Stand Up.
It promptly dissapeared without trace sadly like so many Doors members projects after 1971.

The back cover of the 12" single was meant to be this. Michael Stull, Alex Richman, Karl Rucker and Mike Bekowitz. Basically Butts band MKII
In 1983, Krieger and Densmore released a 12-inch single under the name The Krieger-Densmore Reggae Bonanza. It contained an interesting cover of the Bob Marley song "Kinky Reggae", performed by most of the Butts Band's 1975 lineup. That lineup's male (Michael Stull) and female (Alex Richman) vocalists took turns singing the song's lead vocals. The B-side contains the same version of Marley's "Get Up Stand Up" that opened the Butts Band's 1975 album Hear & Now!. The songs were recorded in 1975, but this single was released in 1983 as a tribute to Marley, two years after his death. The back cover contains a written essay by Densmore, describing his memories of Bob Marley and of two visits to Jamaica by Densmore and Krieger in 1969 and '73. An interesting collectible.
