Product Description

Product Description

12" 180-gram HQ virgin vinyl reissues of the original stereo mixes of the legendary band's six Jim Morrison-fronted studio albums. The reissues of these now historic albums - all originally released between 1967 and 1970 - are replicas of the initial vinyl offerings, including artwork and inner sleeves. The laquers were cut at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood, CA under the direct supervision of original Doors producer/engineer Bruce Botnick and Electra Records founder Jac Holzman. THE DOORS, first released in January 1967, is one of rock music's most famous debuts.-  It hit #2 in Billboard, and delivered the #1 signature smash "Light My Fire" plus "Break On Through," "The Crystal Ship," and "The End."

On their 1967 debut album, the Doors more than fulfilled the promise of their infamously challenging gigs around Los Angeles throughout the previous year. Whether belting out a standard like "Back Door Man" or talk-singing such originals as "The Crystal Ship" and "I Looked at You," leather-clad vocalist Jim Morrison exuded both sensuality and menace. The mixture, on the outsize album finale, "The End," helped rewrite the rules on rock song composition. None of this would have worked, though, were it not for the highly visual instrumental work of keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robbie Krieger, and drummer John Densmore, whose work on tracks such as "Take It As It Comes" and the lengthy hit "Light My Fire" virtually defined the rock-blues-jazz-classical amalgam that was acid-rock. --Billy Altman --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Let me tell you how great this album is. I found every song so great, I grew up thinking this was a greatest hits album. Until I realized I was an idiot...and wrong, I always never considered this one of their greatest albums because I never thought it was a regular album. That being said, you can already understand the power this has. Either that or how much of an idiot I am.
The Doors is my all time favorite band. Morrison, Manzarek, Densmore, and Krieger...the finest in each of their professions. From Morrison's swagger and unintelligible poetry at times, to Manzarek's blues and soul organ, then forth to Densmore's eccentric jazz drumming, and finishing up with the inane flamenco aspects of Krieger's finger picking guitar work...The Doors in retrospect, own. Their debut is such a powerhouse and makes you scream, explode, and reach for the air, that you really just can't get enough of it.
The singles, the hits, and the golden ones are obvious. Who in their right mind HASN'T heard 'Break on Through' or 'Light My Fire'? Or even 'Whiskey Bar'? It's apparent that this album has highlights. But, look further and you can see just where the Doors progressed. From the opening rawhide thunder opener, 'Break on Through' we slowly diminish into this psychological warp that is, 'The End.' Surprisingly, that's exactly where the Doors left off and began with their follow up, 'Strange Days.'
While this is their debut, it is almost a greatest hits album. It culminates everything the damn Doors are. It has psychological, psychedelic rock with that jazz, that blues, and even that thrill. You watch sneak previews at the theaters today and it's not too different than this. Their self titled debut is a demo to what was to come, the ride they were to take us on.

First imagine a quartet with Bach on keyboards, a clever poet taking vocals, an acid-crazed flamenco bluesman on guitar, and a jazz drummer. Now imagine this quartet hitting some kind of insane sexual/ecstatic peak in 1967. There you have it. If you've never heard it, do. If you have, listen to it again and appreciate a peak the rock genre only reached on five or six occasions.
One thing I sorely miss in today's rock are lyrics that make you think--this album's got those up the wazoo. The modest frontman's got a great sultry voice that can Bend in ways that make even banal lyrics mystic and suggestive, and it's even better on the intelligent lines. This forgotten, underappreciated frontman was a master of well-chosen details. Well, another thing I miss in today's rock is long songs that suck you in, take you to another world, that you can get up and walk around in, see the sights and smell the odors of so to speak. "The Doors" has at least two such songs. "Light My Fire" is a stoned fireworks show. If you don't start air-keyboarding to the organ solo, you ain't got a pulse. "The End" is an entire universe that exists only within the words and music of this one song. The best example of abstract poetry I have ever heard, and great 60s-style sexual innuendo all over it. The above-mentioned acid-crazed guitarist plays minimalist sitar-esque lines that put efficient shivers in my spine. A lesson to today's guitar-bashers: Five seconds of well-chosen silence trumps three minutes of uninterrupted sonic assault, any day of the week.
One thing you have to wonder--what would The Doors' music impart today if the frontman had been ugly?

Already immersed in the disease of alcoholism at the age of 23, Jim Morrison provides us with a catbird's seat of his own self-destruction. The Doors as a band were incredibly unique and gifted, but no one has captured the train wreck as existance that is addiction better than "The Lizard King".

The pursuit of danger is captured perfectly on "Break On Through" and "Take It As It Comes." The surreal escapism of drug abuse is explained in "The Crystal Ship" and "End Of The Night." The final destination of this progressive disease finishes up the album ("The End").
To find a artist who honestly performed as a means of exorcisng his own demons, to keep from slitting his throat or jumping out the nearest window, has a certain integrity to it in today's world of corporate rock. The music of the Dors stands on its own merits, but I can't help but believe that, with drug addictions of all kinds on the rise, its lyrics speak to more people today than they did in 1967. Easily one of the top 5 best rock albums ever produced!

This album is one of my all time favorites ranking right up there with Dark Side of the Moon, Led Zeppelin IV, and Sgt Pepper. The newly remastered version is superb and the songs are timeless. What made the Doors great is that they were a "BAND" in every since of the word. It wasn't just Jim Morrison and his three sidemen. The Doors were always a band of unique muscians with a great sound and their debut album proves they were a band for the ages. Highlights for me are Ray's organ introduction for Light My Fire, Robby's haunting guitar sound on End of the Night and Morrison's graet lyrics throughout the entire album. The End is a masterpiece in lyrics and sound. John Densmore's drums sound great here and he's good throughout the entire album although I have always thought he is a bit low in the mix. The sound on this album is vibrant and unique considering this was done on four track stereo and everything about this album points to timeless appeal for years to come. It makes you think about life in the way that it appeals to your senses. It makes you scream for joy, laugh, cry, love, and hate. It's scary in that it sends chills up your spine yet relaxing in the way that it satisfies the listener each time. Go get this album today!
