    Throughout the year of 1994 I was very busy checking record fairs, flea markets and
collectors’ magazines for Doors records I did not own, and I tell you, those Doors discs
at the time were pretty cheap. That’s why I decided to put a few rare Doors 45s on the
front page – and along came The Doors Quarterly Magazine # 31, showing the four
7“ singles from the album THE SOFT PARADE (including WHO SCARED YOU as the flip
side of WISHFUL SINFUL, which did not make it to an album release until WEIRD SCENES
INSIDE THE GOLDMINE). The fans loved the front page and asked for more.

It was the second issue that I mailed from the Netherlands (the postage they asked for
sending the DQ to other European countries and overseas was MUCH less than they used
to do in Germany, and The Netherlands are just a 20 minute ride by car from my town
in Germany). Strangely enough, that was not only cheaper but more reliable – less magazines
got stolen on their way to the fans, and they arrived even faster than before.

A lot of news (5 pages) in this issue – most important of all was the discovery of the
“Lost Paris Tapes“. A guy had contacted me by phone – read the surprising article I
wrote about THE PARIS TAPES OF JIM MORRISON and my meeting with that guy in Paris.

What follows in issue #31 is the usual mix of CD – Vinyl - book reviews, concert reviews,
check them all! Most “letters to the editor“ are about an article Patricia Kennealy-Morrison
had written for DQ 30 – wait for this issue to build your own point of view.

A splendid time is guaranteed for all!

And don’t forget:
Please note that your digital copy of The Doors Quarterly Magazine 31 hasn't been altered
in any way. You get it as it was published on December 1, 1994. Be aware that all
addresses (private, phone, email and web) are no longer valid. Books, CDs or posters and
other stuff might not be available anymore. Please do not respond to any of the small ads or
blame anyone for incorrect details - all writers just did the best they could back in 1994.

Enjoy and let us know what you think ... we will continue soon by publishing
a digital version of DQ 30.

CU and enjoy!
