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?).

This latest series of Doors remasters represent the second upgrading of the band's legacy....by common consent, the very first Doors CDs were streets ahead of the needle-drop, unremastered, tinny products that customers were ripped off by in the early CD age....my 1990 CD of 'L.A. Woman' still sounds great and I've no plans to change it.
The quality may have something to do with the fact that the Doors original albums were so well engineered in the first place....they always did sound ahead of the game, with gleaming, up-front production, beautifully recorded guitars and keyboards and resonant percussion.
There was a previous upgrade in 1999, which improved the bass frequencies; and now we have this latest, and most controversial, Doors edition.
The booklet warns you that you won't be hearing the original 1967 album; that's because the master tapes have been remixed to give new emphasis to certain instruments; plus some new Morrison vocal tracks are used, most notably on 'The End'.
Naturally, some people have objected to this...why not leave it as it was? And whilst I sympathise with that viewpoint, having heard this CD, I have to say I'm not about to make the same objection. Firstly, the sound is magnifiscent: the debut was always the cheapest-sounding Doors album, being done on 2-track equipment. Now, whilst it still sounds cheap compared to say, Morrison Hotel or The Soft Parade, the sound is glossier and fuller...and the remixes do have a 'new light through old windows' effect on the listener, which is not at all off-putting.
The bonus tracks are also very welcome (it was where the last set of remasters fell down, as the Doors' albums tended to be a bit on the short side)and, at budget price, there is no reason not to pick this one up.

This debut album is one of the finest records of all time, so much so that its very existence caused problems for its creators, as they struggled to equal it again with their following albums. "Break On Through", "Twentieth Century Fox" and "Take It As It Comes" showed a superb ability to create perpetually powerful rock songs, whilst "Soul Kitchen", "The Crystal Ship" and "End Of The Night" showed a desire to be taken seriously as dramatic poets, forever making sure they would not be seen as just another rock band.
The album's two key highlights though, are "Light My Fire", a superb hit single that mixed erotic fantasies with intense musical prowess (Will Young has helped to ruin it recently, though, with his hollow, disgustingly awful version), and "The End", the band's apocalyptic epic that sweeps and dives through hypnotic, trance like beauty.
Few albums will ever have the same tense, gritty power as The Doors managed here, which is a lasting tribute to their brilliance.

11 tracks and 11 classics from one of the greatest debut albums of all time. Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek from the beginning must have realised that to live up to this album would have been a near impossible task.
Break on Through is a truly beautiful album starter and from the start you get the feeling of what the doors were all about. The sublime Light My Fire remains the stand out track of the album, partly down to Manzareks majestry in the first 15 seconds. In The End is also a fine way to end a fine album, the Lizard Kings slides from word to word beautifully.
This album also contains a few less epic gems, Alabama Song, a perfect post Jack Daniels track and Soul Kitchen will always freeze my spine.
Encapture the life of one of the greatest and own this album. Go on Ride The Storm
