The band's six Morrison-era albums, all 45 RPM double LPs, in a box set. Vinyl box sets limited to 2,500 numbered copies each on 200-gram vinyl, all remastered from the original sources by Doug Sax and The Doors original engineer Bruce Botnick.
Includes booklet featuring 19 photographs and a 2,700-word essay by The Doors biographer Ben Fong-Torres, esteemed rock journalist and former Rolling Stone editor, all packaged in a textured, fold-over box.
The magnetic door front-opening box (there must be a tech-packaging name for it that I don't know) is beautifully and ruggedly manufactured inside and out. It features a gray cast covering containing a ghostly iconic image of Jim Morrison on the front cover and the group on the back. The box also includes a full-sized full-color printed-on-heavy-stock booklet featuring album notes and a short interview conducted just before Jim Morrison's death by Ben Fong-Torres. It also contains short production notes by Bruce Botnick ... The booklet's layout and graphic content are outstanding and include images of the master tapes and in the case of the first album the rare copy of the master used on that album for the box (the master tape was not useable). ... Like most everything coming from Analogue Productions of late, the packaging and presentation are 'world class.'" — Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, Jan. 30, 2013
As aptly put by rock ‘n' roll journalist extraordinaire Ben Fong-Torres, there's never been a reissue of The Doors recordings that sounded quite like these gems. And now, you can ‘break on through' with all six Doors' studio albums in a deluxe box set.
I received test pressings today for both Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman. I have to tell you that these are the very best pressings I've heard in many, many moons. Great plating and your compound is so quiet that I clearly heard every fade out to its conclusion with no problem. Doug (Sax) and company did a lovely job, the tapes sound pretty damn good for being almost 50 years old and his system is clearly the best...You should be very proud of what you and your troops are doing." - Bruce Botnick, The Doors producer/engineer
