The Doors Quarterly Magazine # 32, issued
on June 15, 1995 what can I say?
What a fine issue it was!
It was almost 20 years ago today, when the readers of DQ
Magazine found out about
Paul Rothchilds sudden death, right after he had
finished work on digitally remastering
the An American Prayer CD. I paid my tribute to him by
reprinting his (basic) interview
he did for L.A.s BAM magazine.
And theres the transcript of Jims Jomo &
The Smoothies session (as reviewed in my usual
Notes From The Underground, The Lost Paris Tapes, check
page 20/21 of DQ 32).
It took a lot of work to review that many underground
releases and of course all
those official publications, tell ya!
Another transcript should be read while listening to a
recording of The Doors'
infamous Miami concert (March 1, 1969) the article
called Apocalypse Now, Then (p. 34-45),
which is a chapter in my Doors book by Heel Publishers,
here translated into English
for the first time ever.
Most fascinating of all are two of Jim Morrisons
testimonies transcribed by a court reporter,
dated September 16 and September 17, 1970. They make a
damn interesting reading,
For our German readers Gabriele Pagel examined two books
containing different translations
of Morrisons poetry into German language (p.69-73).
It is a very strange trip through
a whole lotta awful mistakes made by the people who
translated Jims poems,
and I still would like to hear comments about
Gabrieles article from our German readers.
Somehow I wonder why those books are still around and why
readers still take those
translations for granted.
A photo of The Doors Dutch release of The Soft
Parade is on the title page, and one of
the German special release of Waiting For The Sun is on
page75 --- both vinyl discs are
rare collectors items with increasing value.
And check page 29 Ray Manzarek confirmed to
me that the song Take It As It Comes
was written by Robby Krieger, and he let me print the
according document, which he
announced being authentic.
Have fun (re-)reading The Doors Quarterly #32.
P.S.: The magazine did not come along with a free poster,
but with two
Doors bumper stickers for a change.
