Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings!
One of rock music's most famous debuts, The Doors self-titled 1967 smash is legend. And now it becomes the kick-off for a positively stunning reissue series from Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings!
The Doors was born after Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek — who'd met at UCLA's film school — met again, unexpectedly, on the beach in Venice, CA, during the summer of 1965. Although he'd never intended to be a singer, Morrison was invited to join Manzarek's group Rick and the Ravens on the strength of his poetry. The group later changed its moniker, taking their name from Aldous Huxley's psychotropic monograph "The Doors of Perception." The band signed to Elektra Records following a now-legendary gig at the Whisky-a-Go-Go on the Sunset Strip.
The Doors' arrival on the rock scene produced a string of hit singles and albums destined to become clasics. Belting out a standard like "Back Door Man" or talk-singing such originals as "The Crystal Ship," and "I Looked at You," one reviewer wrote that leather-clad frontman Morrison exuded "both sensuality and menace."
The Doors reached Billboard's No. 2 slot and delivered the No. 1 signature smash "Light My Fire" plus "Break On Through," "The Crystal Ship," and "The End."
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 are also available on 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 tape copy.
A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system. Tubes baby!
This is no time to wallow in the mire. The Doors are on Analogue Productions!

"...the amount of detail and space produced here is superior to any version of this that I've heard save for the Elektra original, which is serious competition though good luck finding a clean quiet one. Even then the 45rpm cut's spaciousness, dynamics and bass power and particularly the overall sound on what are the inner tracks on the original LP are better on the double 45 cut using an all vacuum tube chain just as was the original...The double 45 has greater dynamics, detail, spaciousness and appropriate grit - everything the smooooth 192k/24 bit sourced version lacks...Definitely on my recommended list and the Quality Record Pressings vinyl is superb." Music = 9/11; Sound = 9/11 - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet, July 2012
