Biography

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' arrival on the rock scene in 1967 marked not only the start of a string of hit singles and albums that would become stone ... Read more in Amazon's The Doors Store

Product Description

Reissue on black vinyl of the 1972 Elektra Records release. It was the second compilation by the group and the first release following the death of Jim Morrison. It features the first album release of two B-sides, Willie Dixon's "(You Need Meat) Don't Go No Further," sung by Ray Manzarek, originally on the flip side of the 1971 45 "Love Her Madly," and the beautiful "Who Scared You," "Wishful Sinful"'s flip with Jim Morrison on vocals from a session in 1969. Both are worthwhile additions not found on their first "greatest hits" collection, 13.

This is the only CD I have ever pre-ordered from Amazon and I could not believe that this was now being reissued on CD. I remember it coming out originally and buying it in my lunch hour and then leaving work 'a bit early...'. Although I have always been a Doors fan and had all the albums, i played it to death because it is not the most obvious of tracks chosen in some cases - but the tracks chosen are superb with a very successful running order, to my mind. The tracks just naturally flow like a proper album and I have always viewed it not as a compilation but as a Doors album proper. Simply a superb edition to the Doors catalogue then and now.

I would not recommend it to anyone new-ish to the Doors and would suggest the one CD Best Of. Then to The Doors (first album), Morrison Hotel and LA Woman.

So. I did not buy this in my lunch hour and bunk off work but had it delivered to my home (no more work) and played it loud - again. I felt a quiet excitement - like old times, to my wife's gentle but understanding amusement. She likes this too. The sticker on the cover describes it as 'revered' and this is accurate. Most Doors fans I know love it. It is also great value for money but this is less important with such an iconic re-issue.

This is a great compilation which I bought on vinyl originally. It is the Doors as the fans who bought their albums would want - The End and When the Musics Over are both on it. There are a couple of b-sides - You Need Meat is okay but since the albums have been reissued these are not as collectible.
What I really liked about this compilation was its flow from one song to the next. You probably feel that there are enough Doors compilations out there and I agree but this was the earliest and the best. You want the singles? Don't buy this then because they ain't here.

Released originally in 1972 and it serves as a great intro to the band and surprisingly it doesn't contain all their best songs. Missing are The Changeling, Cars Hiss By My Window, You're Lost Little Girl & People Are Strange - buy it or just invest in all their records apart from their only poor record they made The Soft Parade. There's been alot of dross and hype attached to the legend of The Doors but the music is never over.

An absolute classic, this double compilation album runs even better than the original album layouts. The brilliant track sequencing enhances the music even further if that were ever possible! The vinyl also sounds sensational on a good system, far better than the CD versions of the original albums that I own. I still treasure my copy after nearly 40 years!

Have been after this on CD for years, I still have it on vinyl.
But one thing I can not understand is how can Amazon sell the download of this album which is inferior sound quality and nothing physical which would cost? But they are charging £3.00 MORE!!!?
so if you going to get this album get it on CD as it will be so much better than the download version in so many ways.

Many years ago a vinyl copy of Weird Scenes was my introduction to the Doors and while I went on to buy all the individual albums I don't think any single one of them captures the essence of the Doors as well as this compilation. I congratulate the compiler for the track selection and sequencing.

This is a perfect album. Bought it on vinyl back in 1982. It was my first doors album. I had heard The End in the film Apocalypse Now. I bought two copies, I'm going to give my daughter one copy.
