The Doors singles collected in new box set

The Doors’ 50th anniversary celebration continues this summer with three new collections that spotlight every single and B-side the band released in the U.S., all gathered together for the first time.

The Singles will be available as a 2-CD, 2-CD + Blu-ray and limited-edition 7" vinyl box set on Sept. 15. Pre-order is available now at The Doors Official Online Store.

THE SINGLES – Limited-Edition 7” Vinyl Box features 20 replica U.S. singles, with original B-sides, on 7-inch vinyl 45s with meticulously reproduced cover art and labels, presented in an ornate, lift-top box. This set collects the rare single versions from all of the band’s landmark studio albums, plus other rarities from the era, including:

“Light My Fire” (Original Mono Single Edit),
“Unknown Soldier”/”We Could Be So Good Together” (Original Unique Mono Mix/Edit),
“Love Me Two Times” (Single Edit),
“Touch Me” (Original Unique Stereo Single Mix).

All selections have been mastered from the original analog single masters by the band’s longtime engineer Bruce Botnick. As a bonus, the box also contains a poster featuring singles covers from around the globe! Each Singles Box is individually numbered and is limited to 10,000 copies worldwide!

This release collects all 20 U.S. singles released by The Doors, and their corresponding B-sides, gathered together for the first time. The set includes the rare, original single versions of such classics as, “Love Me Two Times,” “Love Her Madly," “Riders On The Storm” and many more. As a bonus, the CD features four original mono radio versions of some of the band’s biggest hits which have never been made available anywhere after being sent to radio stations around their original release. All 44 tracks have been mastered from the original analog single masters by the band's longtime engineer Bruce Botnick.

The Blu-ray disc that accompanies the expanded version of THE SINGLES features a high-resolution Quadraphonic mix of The Best Of The Doors. This 11-song compilation, available on Blu-ray for the first time, was remixed specifically for Quad in 1973 and offers a unique sonic experience on songs like “Soul Kitchen,” “Moonlight Drive” and “Love Me Two Times.”
