"The real must for everybody who is a fan and lover of Jim Morrison's poetry. This CD contains Jim Morrison's complete first poetry session before Paul Rothchild cut it up into little pieces to see what could be used for the Elektra release An American Prayer ( this Rothchild version was stolen from his desk and used for many bootlegs, including the LP Rock Is Dead (Tangie Town Records), and Orange County Suite (Document Records DR 019), to name the best ones) and also the complete tape Jim recorded in Paris with two unknown street musicians (see The Doors Quarterly #32 for the complete transcript). The content of both tapes was - as rumors go - taken via DAT recorder from the original master Jim had with him in Paris (see The Doors Quarterly #31 for the complete story of The Lost Paris Tapes).
