As aptly put by rock 'n' roll journalist extradorinare Ben Fong-Torres, there's never been a reissue of The Doors recordings that sounded quite like these gems from Analogue Productions and Acoustic Sounds. And now, you can 'break on through' with all six Doors' studio albums in a deluxe box set — on 45 RPM LP and Multichannel Hybrid SACD!
Analogue Productions, taking the original master analog sources, has cut every track from every studio album at 45 RPM, resulting in extended high frequencies, lower noise and, as Fong-Torres notes: "Bottom line, a chronicle of The Doors in the studio, captured with the highest sonic quality possible.
"They deserve no less."
All of The Doors' legendary albums — The untoppable self-titled 1967 debut The Doors, one of rock's most important debuts, Strange Days, Waiting For The Sun, The Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel, and the visceral L.A. Woman — have been remastered by Doug Sax and The Doors' original engineer Bruce Botnick, and the LPs pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Acoustic Sounds' own Quality Record Pressings plant (fast gaining popular consensus as the best pressing plant in the world).
But this special Doors' reissue features more than just spectacular sonics. We've included a 12-inch specially illustrated booklet with 19 photographs and a 2,700-word essay about the band from Ben Fong-Torres. Fong-Torres, a former editor for Rolling Stone, got the last interview with lead singer Jim Morrison before Morrison's departure in Paris in the spring of 1971, never to return.
Portions of that last interview with "lead lizard" Morrison also appear in the included booklet.
All of this comes packaged in a textured fold-over box. Both the box and the booklet will also be sold individually so that those who have already purchased individual albums in our 45 RPM Doors reissue series can assemble the set themselves at home.
Fong-Torres helped compile one of the most definitive written histories of the band — "The Doors by The Doors." In that book, Chester Bennington (Linkin Park) calls The Doors, "the most underrated musical powerhouse in rock history. And unlike some that fade away into the abyss, The Doors will always relate to the youth of any era."
Girl you gotta love your man. And audiophiles, you'll love The Doors box set from Acoustic Sounds. The memory of Morrison and co. on you depends; their legacy will never end. Get this box set today before they're gone; into your house The Doors will storm ... Yeah!
