Two 45 rpm LPs pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Quality Record Pressings/Also on
Hybrid Multichannel SACD
Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and
Quality Record Pressings!
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. Also, all six titles are 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!
"Though it lacks a song as captivating as "Light My Fire," the Doors' second
album is nearly as strong as their debut, The Doors, released earlier the same
year. A mood of alienation, evident on "Strange Days" and "People Are Strange,"
carries through to the lengthy closer, "When the Music's Over." -
“'Strange Days' was the perfect album for its time. For music lovers at a time when records were the main means by which a generation communicated with its culture, the title, cover art, music and sound resonated with the meaning of the fall of 1967 (even though the album was recorded the previous spring at L.A.’s Sunset Sound). 1967’s 'Summer of Love' with 'Light My Fire' from The Doors’ debut album (recorded the previous summer) as its musical anthem had just passed. It was an innocent, celebratory time. Everyone knew something special had happened that summer and the stirrings of further, perhaps momentus change was in the air." - Michael Fremer, analogplanet, Music 10/11. Sound 10/11
