    The L.A. WOMAN 40th Anniversary Edition features a never-before-heard song, "She Smells So Nice," which captures the band - organist RAY MANZAREK, guitarist ROBBY KRIEGER, drummer JOHN DENSMORE and late singer JIM MORRISON- joyfully barreling through a full-throttle original before segueing into the blues standard "Rock Me". As the song closes, Morrison can be heard chanting, "Mr. Mojo Risin'"- an anagram of his name that was made famous during the bridge of "L.A. Woman". Bruce Botnick, the album's co-producer with the band, recently made the discovery while reviewing the L.A. Woman session tapes. In addition to "She Smells So Nice", the second disc of the L.A. WOMAN reissue includes eight never-before-heard versions of songs from the album. Alternate takes of "L.A. Woman," "Love Her Madly" and "Riders On The Storm" offer a fresh view on this landmark album, which was the group's sixth straight Top 10. The studio chatter between the songs is a revelation, transporting listeners to The Doors Workshop: the West Hollywood rehearsal space where they recorded the album with Botnick. One segment in particular captures a fascinating moment of inspiration when Morrison suggests they add the now-iconic thunderstorm sound effects to the beginning of "Riders On The Storm".
