Sinister, beguiling … these were words reviewers used to describe The Door’s melodic psychedelic-era genre-blending sound. A mix of blues, Eastern music, classical and pop fueled hits such as the bluesy “Love Me Two Times” and “People Are Strange” from The Door’s debut follow-up, Strange Days.

Strange Days featured a smattering of edgy recitations (“Horse Latitudes”) and smoky rockers (“My Eyes Have Seen You”). Morrison’s rallying cry “We want the world, and we want it now!” from the ambitious extended track, “When the Music’s Over,” marked a touchstone for that era’s counterculture movement. Rolling Stone described Strange Days as having “all the power and energy of the first LP, but (it’s) more subtle, more intricate and much more effective.”

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 200-gram vinyl, pressed at 45 rpm. All six titles are also available on Hybrid 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 analog tape copy.

The Doors fifth studio album, Morrison Hotel, will be reissued in October for its 50th anniversary.

The album was recorded in late 1969/early 1970 and released in February 1970. It’s newly remastered for this release by Bruce Botnick and this version is included on CD and as 180g vinyl record.

The goodies are all on the bonus CD with more than an hour of unreleased recordings taken from the sessions for Morrison Hotel.

Botnick says: “There are many takes, different arrangements, false starts, and insightful studio conversations between the band – who were in the studio – and producer Paul Rothchild – who was in the control room. It’s like being a fly on the wall.”

Waiting for the Sun was originally released in August, 1968. It was the band’s third platinum album in less than two years, and the first to top the album chart. Since its debut, the album has sold millions of copies around the globe and contributed to the Doors’ legendary canon with classics like “The Unknown Soldier,” “Five To One” and the #1 smash, “Hello, I Love You.”

We celebrate the 50th anniversary of this monumental album this year with WAITING FOR THE SUN: 50th ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION. This double-album collection features a new version of the album’s original stereo mix, which has been newly remastered from the original master tapes by Bruce Botnick, the Doors’ longtime engineer/mixer. The album also includes 14 completely unreleased tracks: nine recently discovered “rough mixes” from the album recording sessions and five live songs from a 1968 Copenhagen show.

When The Doors’ first album hit the transatlantic counterculture of the late ’60s, their music seemed like an unprecedented trip into Bacchanalian excess and shamanic intensity, yet little material has arisen of the embryonic period that led to this psychic watershed – enter this recording of one of their earliest gigs in the titular Los Angeles venue, on which, thanks to audience member Nettie Pena’s reel-to-reel recording device, we can now witness a seemingly unbothered crowd chat and clink glasses as rock iconography emerges thrillingly before their bleary eyes and ears. From gutsy blues standards to a spooky early take on ‘Strange Days’.

The Doors’ fourth studio album, ‘The Soft Parade’, became the band’s fourth straight top ten album when it was released. Despite featuring one of the group’s biggest hits, ‘Touch Me’, it remains the most polarising record of The Doors’ career, thanks to the brass and string arrangements that embellish several tracks.
