The Doors 'S/T' LP 180 Gram Stereo Reissue
180 gram stereo reissue
The Doors is the eponymous debut album by American rock band the Doors, recorded in August 1966 and released on January 4, 1967 (although the album was available in various record stores in New York City as early as the third week in December 1966 as part of a special promotion). It was originally released in different stereo and mono mixes, and features the breakthrough single 'Light My Fire', extended with an instrumental section mostly omitted on the single release, and the lengthy song 'The End 'with its Oedipal spoken word section. The Doors credit the success of the album to being able to work the songs out night after night at the Whisky A Go Go and the Londo Fog nightclubs.
The Doors was not only one of the albums to have been most central to the progression of psychedelic rock, but is also one of the most acclaimed recordings in all of popular music. In 2012, it was ranked number 42 in Rolling Stone magazine's list of 500 greatest albums of all time; it continues to hold similarly high positions on other "best-of" lists.
