I was looking through the booklet that comes with the Legacy compliation for The Doors, and I have two questions for the bigger Doors fans out there.

1. Is Jim, or another Door, playing the harmonica, because nobody is listed for it?
2. There is a harp part for the song, where can it be heard clearly at?

I believe on the live versions I have someone else plays it...

Like Live In Philadelphia 1970. I'd look up who it is, but my asshole friend stole the cd and hasn't given it back.

Contracts often forced session musicians to use fake names or not be creditted at all. I know that a pre-doors band had a harp player, he was Robby or Ray or John's brother, I can't recall. Not sure if they got him to do that part.

In Philly '70 noone played a harmonica, but Detroit '70 John Sebastian came on and played a little harmonica.

On the studio version Lonny Mack played harmonica.

John Sebastion and G Pulgese are the same guy. He did infact play harp on the track.
