That isn't The Doors. They only played Riders once, it was in Dallas in December 1970. The recording has not surfaced.

Riders was not composed until 1970. Additionally, the Mexico shows have never surfaced. It is believed that the concerts were recorded for a radio broadcast, but the tapes (if they actually exist), have remained underground -- although there were rumors they briefly surfaced around the time of the Oliver Stone movie release.

OK Thanks. I thought it was strange that they gave the year as 1969. The posts and replies was written in Mexican. Do you understand mexican? And if so did someone comment that it was a faker over there?

MidnightX, is this other one also a faker?

Riders on the Storm rare (no second vocal overdubs, no echo, no drums) mix

Just a home-made mix made by a fan. Not an authentic performance from the band's archives.
