The Doors Share Previously Unreleased ‘Paris Blues’

Rock legends The Doors recently shared a previously unreleased song, “Paris Blues.”

“‘Paris Blues’ traveled a long and winding path to its release, taking on a mythic quality among Doors’ fans along the way,” noted a message accompanying the tune. “An original blues song written by the band; the track was recorded during one of the band’s recording sessions for either The Soft Parade or L.A. Woman (no one seems to remember).”

“Paris Blues” was most likely recorded sometime between 1968 and the end of 1970.

“The master tape of the song was lost and the only surviving copy was given to Doors’ keyboardist Ray Manzarek,” the official message continued. “Sadly, this copy was partially damaged by his son Pablo (a toddler at the time), who recorded over a few short parts. Now, through some creative editing, the song has been rescued from obscurity for the new album.”

“Paris Blues” also serves as the title track to a new upcoming blues-themed compilation, which will drop on Friday, November 25. The album will be available as a limited edition of 10,000 numbered copies on translucent blue vinyl at select independent music stores.
