With an intoxicating, genre-blending sound, provocative and uncompromising songs, and the mesmerizing power of singer Jim Morrison's poetry and presence, the Doors had a transformative impact not only on popular music but on popular culture.

The Doors were a number of bands that had seminal releases in that magical year of 1967, which was the height of the Sixties cultural phenomenon. To fully appreciate the splendour of this album one most have at least a passing knowledge of what was happening in the music world at that time. This was the single most creative year in rock history. During the Summer of Love, Sgt Pepper was released (Magical Mystery Tour, while not a proper album, was also released later that year) by The Beatles.. Hendrix's Are You Experienced and Axis: Bold as Love was released, also so was Pink Floyd's debut with original singer Sid Barrett. The Grateful Dead debuted that year. Jefferson Airplane released Surrealistic Pillow. Cream released Disraeli Gears. Buffalo Springfield released their debut and the Again record that year. The Who Sell Out came out. The Velvet Underground with Nico with Andy Warhol was released also. Arlo Guthry also released Alice's Restaurant that year (the title cut as legendary and long as Iron Butterfly's In-a-Gadda-Da-Vida). The Beach Boys' Smile, the most famous unfinished album of rock history, was slated for release this year, but it fell apart after Wilson thought the Beatles topped them in Sgt Pepper. Fleetwood Mac also formed in 1967. And The Doors released this album, and Strange Days.

Also, in that magical year of music and culture, we get this, a stunning document of a superb band. Not only that, it was their debut. As I detailed in the paragraph above, several important albums were released this year of '67. The Doors were up against some very tough competition. But they shine, do they ever shine. You know you're in for a treat as soon as Break on Thru starts. Then it transcends into a funky song called Soul Kitchen (a song about sex, perhaps?).

First I must say that I'm not a die hard Doors-fan, but nevertheless I greatly enjoy their first and by far their, in my opinion, best album. I have not listened closely to the other editions of this album so I cannot say that this or that is really different. But what I can say is that there is nothing here that sounds unnatural, like, for instance, the first ZZ Top remixes of their 70's albums. And also, I think it makes sense to let people hear the original lyrics to some of the songs, as in "Break on through", where there is a line of the lyrics where Jimbo on the original releases has been edited to sing "she gets" three times, which doesn't make any sense. Now you can hear the whole phrase as it is supposed to be ("she gets high", makes more sense), whithout being artistically limited by the morals of the day. A small detail one might think but still a great improvement in my opinion. There are a few other similar improvements, as you might hear. Other is that the instrumentation is much clearer of course, and if there has been changes to include alternate solos instead of the originals, for instance, I would also as a hardcore fan be pissed of, and if that is so I can't tell since I've never owned any of the first editions. All I can say is that this edition sounds as clear and crystal an album recorded in the sixties may sound. Oh yes, another change to be done is the speed correction of the music, which to me is not super obvious (so now you can acctually play along without detuning your guitar), but might sound weird to someone who has been listening to the original outputs of this album for forty years. I will nevertheless think of the speed correction as an improvement since it originally was a default caused by the limitations of the technique available back in the mid 60's.

I give this edition my recommendations.

The Doors' 1967 debut album is a truly astonishing piece of music, sounding, for me, just as fresh and original nearly half a century after its recording. Of course, the unique sound of this band was the result of a number of key factors, not least the amazing vocals from front man Jim Morrison, whose ability to switch between lyrical, floating harmonies and scorching yelps and screams has not been matched since. But we shouldn't forget that the remainder of the band produced one of the tightest sounds of any band, all underpinned by John Densmore's superlative drumming, Bobby Krieger's brilliantly judged guitar playing (just the right mix of the subtle and the soaring - the latter amply demonstrated in his magnificent solo during Light My Fire - no need for prog-rock pyrotechnics here), and (driving the band's unique sound) Ray Manzarek's keyboarding skills, whose sound is right to the fore, frequently replacing (what ordinarily would be) guitar parts. The band's resulting (keyboard-led) sound has never been equalled, though it has clearly influenced many bands, ranging from Doors' contemporaries such as Iron Butterfly through to punk's own The Stranglers.

This debut album also demonstrated that the band were not to be limited to a single musical style, but instead showcased their own influences and heritage, such as on the two non-original songs here, Kurt Weill's jaunty, Cabaret-style Alabama Song and Willie Dixon's blues standard, and provocatively titled, Back Door Man. Apparently, this latter song was a live favourite of the band and you can see why with Manzarek's hypnotic keyboard riff and Morrison's impassioned and increasingly manic vocals.

The album opens with (possibly) my all-time favourite Doors song, Break On Through (To The Other Side).
