Welcome to our weekly new music roundup, a new feature we'll be doing here on GuitarWorld.com where we collect all the new tracks that have debuted over the course of the past week -- whether we got around to posting about them or not -- all in one place so you can catch up over the weekend.
The release of the track compliments the 40th anniversary edition of L.A. Woman, which will be released on January 24 along with a new DVD, Mr. Mojo Risin', which tells the story behind the making of the Doors' final album with Jim Morrison.
At noon EST Monday, January 9, Doors fans will be able to check out a newly discovered song by the band -- "She Smells So Nice," an outtake from the band's 1971 album, L.A. Woman -- on the band's official Facebook page.
In joint celebration of the legendary Doors guitarist’s vast achievements and the 50th Anniversary of the Gibson SG, Gibson USA presents the 50th Anniversary Robby Krieger SG. It features a pair of humbucking pickups with phase switching and a Maestro Vibrola with vintage-style “Lyre” tailpiece.
“Light My Fire” was one of the first songs ever written by Robby Krieger, and his extended solo on the album version was also one of his shining moments as a guitarist. Ironically, however, in order for “Light My Fire” to become a hit for the Doors and Krieger the songwriter, Krieger the guitarist had to swallow his pride and allow his masterly two-and-a-half-minute solo to be trimmed down to its essential opening and closing themes for use on the single.
