Numbered, Limited Edition!
50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition 3CD & 180g Vinyl LP Set!
Remastered by Bruce Botnick!

TAS Rated 3.5/5 Music, 4/5 Sonics in the May/June 2020 Issue of The Absolute Sound!

One Of TAS' Ten Best Rock Albums of 2020!

Newly expanded 3CD/1LP set that includes the original studio album – and the B-side “Who Scared You” – newly remastered by Bruce Botnick, The Doors’ longtime engineer and mixer. The collection is a limited edition of individually numbered copies and also includes the original album on 180-gram vinyl along with liner notes by noted rock journalist David Fricke.

The core of the collection is comprised of more than a dozen unreleased songs. Among the highlights are stripped down “Doors Only” versions of five tracks where the horns and strings have been removed (“Tell All The People,” “Touch Me,” “Wishful Sinful,” “Runnin’ Blue,” and “Who Scared You.”) The set also features three of those stripped-back versions with new guitar parts added by Robby Krieger (“Touch Me,” “Wishful Sinful,” and “Runnin’ Blue).

The collection also uncovers three songs from studio rehearsals – with Ray Manzarek (a.k.a. Screamin’ Ray Daniels) on vocals – that include an early version of “Roadhouse Blues,” a song that would be released the following year on Morrison Hotel. These three songs include newly recorded bass parts by Robert DeLeo of Stone Temple Pilots, who joined Krieger and John Densmore at a tribute concert for Manzarek in 2016, three years after the organist died of cancer.

A trio of studio outtakes collected on the set’s final disc feature the much-bootlegged, hour-long jam, “Rock Is Dead,” which appears here in its entire, surviving form for the first time ever. The track finds The Doors riffing through the entire history of rock ’n’ roll, from early delta blues through surf music, ending with the death of rock.

The strings and horns never bothered me, but the remixes do have a gritty charm that spotlights the band's playing. Also featured is an early version of 'Roadhouse Blues,' sung by Manzarek, and the rambling hour-long jam 'Rock Is Dead.' The digital tracks are encoded for MQA-capable players and bring an extra sparkle to the proceedings. Overall, a welcome addition to Rhino's ongoing and reverential reissue series.
