Perception - Box Set (Original box with spy-hole) RIP Ray,
This review is from: Perception (Audio CD)
I was one of the original customers to get the limited edition box that is bigger than the re-issued version and has a spy-hole that has images of the band if you look through the small eye glass.
As a Doors fan I already had all the original CDs of the Doors. What this set gives us is all the Doors studio albums re-mixed and with a load of out-takes and alternative takes. Some of these tracks were found on the Doors Box Set from 1997 but also remixed yet again.
What I really love about this set is the DVD Audios in 5.1, these albums sound amazing in 5.1 and really bring out Jim Morrisons vocals and the sound of the band in a far greater light.
For some reason I continue to play L.A Woman far more than any other DVD because it sounds the most spectacular in 5.1, especially Riders On The Storm. This entire set has been produced brilliantly by Bruce Botnick and deserves to be in your collection if you can still buy it. Seems it has been discontinued but can be found if you look around.
This review is dedicated to the late Ray Manzarak
