Review by Guillermo
2 stars The version of "Riders on the Storm" released in this single lacks most of the electric piano introduction parts played by Ray Manzarek (and also the storm sounds which were included at the start of the album version), and his piano solo in the middle of the song is also cut a bit, and there are also some edits done in the instrumental sections towards the end of the song. "Riders on the Storm" is one of my favourite songs from the band, and Manzarek really shines in this song. I don`t know if it was a song which was mainly composed by him, but it could have been, because the main instrument in this song is his electric piano. So, by cutting some of the electric piano parts, this single version is not as good as the album version, in my opinion. For collectors only.
