Seller’s Comments: “The Doors Waiting For The Sun LP w/ cover, record and inner sleeve — all in bad condition. I just got off the phone with the previous owner whose name is writen on the back. She never met the guys, but her friend’s father knew them and hence she received a very nice gift for a young girl in the 60’s! I saw a contract online between The Doors and Elektra Records from 1970 — you might want to look at that too. I promised Sharon I’d send a little money after I sell this, and although she said she doesn’t want anything, I’m still going to do that because it’s the right thing to do. She said she got rid of a bunch of her records when she was moving from Florida, so obviously this was one of them and I guess she forgot that this special one was in there. How it made it’s way up to me in NJ — I have no clue, but I’m happy it did and happy it survived the swingin’ sixties!”
