As aptly put by rock ‘n’ roll journalist extraordinaire Ben Fong-Torres, there’s never been digital reissues of The Doors recordings that has sounded quite like these hybrid multichannel gems from Analogue Productions. Taking the original master analog sources, they have made the ultimate digital editions. 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!”
The Doors exploded onto the music scene in 1967 with their epic debut, introducing the world to their unique blend of rock, blues, jazz and flamenco styles arranged around Morrison’s deep, resonate voice and poetic lyrics. Their eponymous release is widely considered the band’s masterwork and contains some of their most beloved songs, including “Break On Through (To The Other Side),” “Light My Fire,” “Back Door Man” and “The End.”
Although most of the material for their 1967 sophomore album was written around the same time as their debut which was released earlier in the same year, the songs on the genre-bending Strange Days still manage to possess their own distinct and foreboding character. The equally as impressive follow-up yielded the touchstone hits “Love Me Two Times” and “People Are Strange” as well as the the fan favorites “Moonlight Drive,” “Strange Days” and “When The Music’s Over.”
With their third album, 1968’s Waiting For The Sun, The Doors took a noticeably mellower turn, delivering some fine melodic ballad rock songs like “Hello, I Love You,” “Love Street” and “Wintertime Love” while still retaining their former power with tracks like “The Unknown Soldier,” “Spanish Caravan” and the apocalyptic “Five To One.” The Doors’ newfound sensibility not only helped the band produce one of their most diverse releases, it also resulted in their first and only #1 album.
The Doors mined new territory with their 1969 release, The Soft Parade, incorporating brass, strings and even a full orchestra into the mix, albeit with the same results as it became their fourth Top 10 album in a row. The album climbed all the way to #6 on the strength of the huge hit “Touch Me.”
Released in 1970 in the wake of Jim Morrison’s infamous indecency bust, the Doors next-to-last album Morrison Hotel found the band reinventing themselves as one of the greatest bar bands around with a thrilling bluesy, no-frills approach and harder edged sound. The album shot up to #4 on the charts on the strength of the now classics “Waiting For The Sun,” “Roadhouse Blues” “Peace Frog” and “Ship Of Fools.”
1971’s L.A. Woman was The Doors sixth and final studio album, released just three months before Jim Morrison’s death in Paris, France. It was also the first Doors album to not feature production from longtime collaborator Paul Rothchild. The rawer, more live feel marks a return to the blues roots from which the band originally emerged, delivering the signature songs “Love Her Madly,” “Riders On The Storm” and the title track.
