The Doors To Reissue 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition Of Debut Album

Today is the “Day Of The Doors” in Los Angeles and to coincide with honor bestowed upon the icon rock band, the group has announced a 50th anniversary reissue of their self-titled debut album. The deluxe edition is due out on March 31 and comes with a bonus live performance by The Doors in 1967.

Featuring the classic lineup of Jim Morrison, Ray Manzarek, John Densmore and Robby Krieger, The Doors was originally issued by Elektra Records 50 years ago today. The updated reissue comes as a 3CD/LP set, with one disc including a remastered version of the album’s original stereo mix, another disc of the original mono mix (on CD for the first time and also included on vinyl) and a third disc of a recording of The Doors’ March 7, 1967 show at the Matrix in San Francisco.

Originally issued in 2008, the reissue of the concert at the Matrix was sourced from the previously thought to be lost, recently discovered original master tapes. The set also included previously unseen and rare photographs and liner notes penned by music journalist David Fricke.
