The Doors @ 40 March 25, 2007

Posted by cobaltmale in anniversaries, Popstars.

Another event this year is the 40th anniversary of The Doors’ eponymous first album, and certainly this is taken as the official date to celebrate by both the record company and the remaining band members (there’s even a logo!).

Ray Manzarek and Robbie Krieger were on Radio 2 as Johnnie Walker‘s special guests this afternoon, blatently plugging a new compilation which is released tomorrow (and pictured above). It’s a complete remaster on 2 CDs, accompanied by a live DVD and book on the deluxe edition. The interview was entertainingly candid covering Bach riffs, regular LSD use and Jim Morrison’s endowment. It can be heard on the Listen Again facility for 7 days from today.

Taken from Amazon, here’s the new complilation’s 34 tracks :

1. Break On Through
2. Strange Days
3. Alabama Song
4. Love Me Two Times
5. Light My Fire
6. Spanish Caravan
7. Crystal Ship
8. The Unknown Soldier
9. The End (full version)
10. People Are Strange
11. Back Door Man
12. Moonlight Drive
13. End Of The Night
14. Five To One
15. When The Music’s Over

1. Bird Of Prey
2. Love Her Madly
3. Riders On The Storm
4. Orange County Suite
5. Runnin’ Blue
6. Hello I Love You
7. The W.A.S.P. (Texas Radio & The Big Beat)
8. Stoned Immaculate
9. Soul Kitchen
10. Peace Frog
11. L.A. Woman
12. Waiting For The Sun
13. Touch Me
14. The Changeling
15. Wishful, Sinful
