Two 45 rpm LPs pressed on 180-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings/Also on Hybrid Multichannel SACD
Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings!
The title track from this, the last Doors album recorded with Jim Morrison, who died shortly after it was released, has, said one reviewer, "maybe the best Chuck Berry riffs since the Stones." And that's not even mentioning "Love Her Madly," which became one of the highest charting hits for The Doors.
"Love Her Madly," was written by Doors guitarist Robbie Krieger, who is said to have penned the song about the numerous times his girlfriend threatened to leave him. The song peaked at No. 11 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart and reached No. 3 in Canada.
L.A. Woman was still high on the charts when, like in the lyric "actor out on loan" of its closing track - the celebrated "Riders on the Storm," Jim Morrison died in a Paris bathtub in the summer of 1971.
Via such tracks as "The Changeling," "Crawling King Snake," and the frothy, rollicking title track, the collection leaned heavily toward the Blues - in particular, Morrison's boastful "Lizard King" brand of it. All-in-all, Rolling Stone proclaimed L.A. Woman, "The Doors' greatest album, including their first," and "A landmark worthy of dancing in the streets."
Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings are proud to announce that these six studio LP titles - The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun, Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman - are featured on 180-gram vinyl, pressed at 45 rpm. Also, all six titles are available on Multichannel SACD! All were cut from the original analog masters by Doug Sax, with the exception of The Doors, which was made from the best tape copy.
A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system. Tubes baby!
This is no time to wallow in the mire. The Doors are on Analogue Productions!
Jim Morrison said that the Doors wanted to "get back to what we did originally: just be very primitive in our approach, very relaxed." Recorded in their rehearsal room with Morrison's mike set up in the bathroom, this was a bluesier, confident Doors, including 'Love Her Madly' and 'Riders on the Storm.' Morrison died soon after.
