"The albums sound phenomenal! I turned the lights off and listened to Riders on the Storm last night and was blown away, blown all the way back to the 70's while watching the glow of my amp tubes. This is one of the coolest Box Sets in my collection!!!" - Bob Bantz, President Elusive Disc, Inc.
"...the box set's packaging is truly D-luxe and the labels and inserts accurate to the originals." - Michael Fremer, May 2008 www.musicangle.com
"Comparing the originals of the first two albums to the reissues demonstrates both how good the originals sounded and how close Holzman, Botnick and Grundman have come in re-creating the original magic, digital or no digital. In fact, it could be argued that these new reissues of the first two albums sound bigger, more dynamic, detailed and tape like compared to the commercial originals. They surely are somewhat brighter but not harder (though demagnetization really smooths them out), and they are more dynamic, bigger and more detailed by far." - Michael Fremer, May 2008 www.musicangle.com
"...these new reissues are far superior overall than the Japanese, Mo-Fi or DCC reissues. The DCCs may sound more pleasant but they are also more distant, and far less detailed, particularly in terms of sustain and decay. The new reissues sound more like analog tape by a considerable margin." - Michael Fremer, May 2008 www.musicangle.com
"Overall then, I'd say the wait for The Doors box set has been well worth it. I got my money's worth in one long sitdown with the entire set and I know I'll be listening happily for a long time to come... The Doors Vinyl Box is sure to become a collector's item..." - Michael Fremer, May 2008 www.musicangle.com
"I give a huge thumbs up to the Door Vinyl Box Set with the 180 gram albums. It is excellent.
Thank you for the outstanding tunes and keep up the great work." - John T. - Indiana, Elusive Disc Customer

The Doors: Vinyl Restoration
The process of restoration and mastering this vinyl reissue took place over a three-month period, starting with the gathering of all the original stereo and, where available, monaural master tapes as well as the 1:1 safety copies and original EQ copies. All the tapes were originally mixed from 1/2" 4 track and 1" 8 track to 1/4" 15 ips NAB analogue tape records, generally on Ampex 351 tube/valve machines. (In the U.K. tubes are known as valves.) In 1968, starting with The Doors' third album, EKS-74024 Waiting For the Sun, in order to optimize tape hiss we introduced the Dolby A-301 noise-reduction system....
