I played The Doors a lot back in my (distant) youth and while I didn't have a full set, I had most of the definitive albums - on tape cassette!

Twenty years on and that collection has long since disappeared, so rather than rebuilding the collection by buying lots of albums, or agonising about which selected albums to go for, I got this one. It's got all the best, most well known songs and then some.

"The Best Of XXX" albums are always a bit of a cop out, but let's face it. Given a choice between buying five or six albums or one album with 34 songs, some of us will just go for the easy way out.

The Doors were an iconic band and this is a jolly fine record of a distinguished career.

"Indians scattered on dawn's highway bleeding. Ghosts crowd the young child's fragile eggshell mind."

Always been a fan of The Doors but for some reason never bought their work when younger. Bought this album having been prompted by odd track played on radio. Great collection of top Doors tracks for those not wanting to buy individual CD's with their preferred tracks on - this album has the lot including magnificent extended version of Ligh My Fire. Just a couple of tracks put in that, in my mind, were just 'fillers' and not too good.

I bought the CD of this mainly as I wanted the auto rip as well and at the time it was slightly cheaper to get this than the MP3 album on it's own! The tracks on the CD are OK but it's the MP3 that is much better. The version of The End on here is a cut version (possibly off The Doors album, can't quite remember) in all though if you like the Doors this is great.

The 'AutoRip' version which you receive is the remastered 2014 version and is not as good as the originals, if you know them. It's a nice service, but it's not a rip of -this- album.

This is the un-modified 'Very Best of' on the CD and contains the tracks the way they should sound. Excellent value.

wonderful balanced collection of their greatest work. It doesn't date.
Listen to the rhythms on my all time favourite, Riders On The Storm (I am a horror writer, who cannot be inspired with lyrics like that???) and know that the brooding enigmatic talented Jim Morrison gives a class performance, as always.
Great collection.

For the casual fan it is indispensable and will give you a shot of the Doors when you need it or for the uninitiated it is a good place too start. I like it for having the more popular bits and some album tracks that draw you in to explore the albums more in one place. also it is longer than their own albums so having it all in one place is handy to just put it on and have the Doors for almost an hour...
