To celebrate this landmark recording’s 50th anniversary, the band will
release THE DOORS: 50TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION. This 3CD/LP set
will be available on March 31.
Packaged in a 12 x 12 hardcover book, THE DOORS: 50TH ANNIVERSARY
DELUXE EDITION includes a remastered version of the album’s original
stereo mix, available on CD for the first time in a decade and remastered
for the first time in nearly 30 years. The album’s original mono mix was
also remastered for this set and is making its CD debut here. An LP-version
of the mono mix is also included. The third disc features live performance
from The Matrix in San Francisco recorded just weeks after The Doors was
released. Music journalist David Fricke provides detailed liner notes for the
set, which includes a selection of rare and previously unseen photographs.
THE DOORS: 50TH ANNIVERSARY DELUXE EDITION offers a rare opportunity
to hear the band on the verge of superstardom with live performances
recorded during a March 7, 1967 show at the Matrix in San Francisco. The
Matrix recordings heard on this deluxe edition were sourced from the
recently discovered, original tapes, previously thought to be lost. The Matrix
recordings originally released in 2008 were from a third-generation source,
so the sound quality of the versions debuting here is second to none.
