Rhino release ingeniously-packaged box-set
The Doors’ 40th anniversary is next month, and Rhino/Elektra Records will be saluting one of the greatest rock bands of all time with ‘Perception’.
A lavish 12-disc set, it’s appropriately packaged as a door, one that can be opened and closed.
The 6-CD/6-DVD box-set presents all of The Doors’ classic studio albums with legendary vocalist Jim Morrison, each supplemented with rare and unreleased audio and video tracks.
Surviving band members John Densmore (drums), Robby Krieger (guitar), and Ray Manzarek (keyboards) helped produce the collection alongside The Doors’ long-time engineer Bruce Botnick.
1967’s ‘The Doors’ and ‘Strange Days’, 1968’s ‘Waiting For The Sun’, 1969’s ‘The Soft Parade’,1970’s ‘Morrison Hotel’ and 1971’s L.A. Woman’ all get remastered.
Each album is also accompanied by a DVD, including a 5.1 DTS Surround Sound mix of the album, as well as photo galleries and videos.
‘Perception’ will be available from November 28.
