If you really like this recording, find an original pressing and pay the premium. Every single Doors recording is far superior in the original version.

I guess I mispoke, thanks for the clarification,
I knew that Ray’s keyboard was ’the bass player’, in the beginning, that’s what I meant that most never realized.
I never payed enough attention to who played what after their initial breakthrough. I also never played them thru this system, I’ll have to drag out and clean my old LP’s.
There was a lot of weed and tobacco smoke in those days, gunking up everything. When I quit smoking after 30 years, I coughed up disgusting stuff for 6 months. Gotta clean those oldies.
Not to rub it in but I do have an original pressing and it sound great. Around here I keep checking antique shops and thrift stores for old classics. A lot of searching and a lot of time but I have had some great success. I did buy a new press remaster of eat a peach and it sounds just like the original I have. To me the hunt is part of the kill!
happy hunting and enjoy the music.
