The Doors, L.A. Woman ORIGINAL JIM MORRISON HAND WRITTEN LYRICS. A truly unique, once in a lifetime opportunity to own the original hand written lyrics for L.A. Woman. The original studio written lyrics by Jim Morrison. Previously on loan and displayed at the original Hard Rock Caf in New York. Comprising of one yellow sheet of lined A4 paper written by Jim Morrison in pen. Less than four months after this song was released in April of 1971, Jim Morrison had died. Handwritten lyrics from rocks golden age are incredibly rare and this is one of the best examples iin the world today. Accompanied by several important pieces of paperwork and letters of provenance. These lyrics were given on the day of the recording by Jim Morrison to the manager of The Byrds and Blue Cheer, Russ Estees. Included with the lyrics is a copy of a letter from Russ Estees detailing this event on his Crystal Sky Productions letter headed paper and dated 5/93. Russ Estees at the time was working for Screen Gems and also managed The Byrds (the US band) and Blue Cheer. These original handwritten lyrics to The Doors L.A.Woman do not contain the words "Mr Mojo Risin" because this sheet was the very first incarnation of the track in the studio from December 1970. In the beginning, that part of the song had not even been devised. It was only in 1971 when John Densmore later got the band to slow the track down in the middle eight and they needed a chant or hook to link it up. It was only at this point when Jim came up with the anagram of his name to use across the track. One other important variation of these lyrics has appeared in The Doors scrapbook. Those lyrics were actually requested specifically by Danny Sugarman from Jim, after the recording of L.A. Woman. Those hand written Jim Morrison manuscripts were originally sold to two Los Angeles dealers by Danny Sugarman. It is well known those lyrics were all written after the actual recordings of the songs unlike the single sheet that is on offer here, written during the first 1970 studio recording . "L.A. Woman" is a landmark song by The Doors and title track to their 1971 album. An original yellow sheet of lined A4 paper bearing lyrics handwritten by Jim Morrison, legendary singer of 1960s rock band The Doors. Jim Morrison's lyrics are written in blue pen, with Biro doodles to the left hand side. To the top of the A4 sheet the singer has written "J.M./Doors - L.A. Woman" and autographed the sheet to the top right corner next to the song title. Without question one of the single most important set of lyrics ever made available on the open market for the ultimate rock n roll collection. The authenticity of this fascinating piece of music history is verified by its undeniable provenance, having also been formally exhibited in the famous Hard Rock Cafe, New York. The lyrics are accompanied by a copy of the letter from the original owner Russ Estees, a letter from the Hard Rock Caf, NY returning the lyrics after their loan. There are two further independent letters of authentication including full forensic analysis of the letter. The whole collection is also accompanied by full rareandsigned certification valuing this package at 500,000 in May 2019.
