Part of The Doors reissue series proudly presented by Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings! Opens with a powerful blast of raw funk called Roadhouse Blues. It features jagged barrelhouse piano, fierce guitar, and one of the most convincing raunchy vocals Jim Morrison has ever recorded. In short, the harsh brilliance of Roadhouse Blues was its angry hard rock manner, brought to fore in brooding fashion with a chillingly true Morrison lyric: I woke up this morning and I got myself a beer/The future's uncertain and the end is always near.Making it one of The Doors best-ever tracks, Roadhouse Blues was joined as praise-worthy in Rolling Stones review by the buoyant catchiness of another. A chanty that sets you rocking and swaying on first listen and never fails to bring a smile every time it's repeated. This is no time to wallow in the mire. The Doors are on Analogue Productions! Technical notes about the recording process by Doors producer/engineer Bruce Botnick: Throughout the record history of the Doors, the goal between Paul Rothchild and myself was to be invisible, as the Doors were the songwriters and performers.
Our duty was to capture them in the recorded medium without bringing attention to ourselves. Of course, the Doors were very successful, and Paul and I did receive some acclaim, which we did appreciate. If you listen to all the Doors albums, no attempt was made to create sounds that weren't generated by the Doors, except for the Moog Synthesizer on. Although that was played live in the mix by Jim, but that's another story. The equipment used was very basic, mostly tube consoles and microphones.
Telefunken U47, Sony C37A, Shure 56. The echo used was from real acoustic echo chambers and EMT plate reverb units. In those days, we didn't have plug-ins or anything beyond an analogue eight-track machine. All the studios that we used, except for Elektra West, had three Altec Lansing 604E loudspeakers, as that was the standard in the industry, three-track. We used four-track Ampex recorders and on the subsequent albums, 3M 56 eight-tracks.
Dolby noise reduction units were used on two albums. Everything was analogue, digital was just a word. We didn't use fuzz tone or other units like that but created the sounds organically, i.
The massive dual guitar solo on "When The Music's Over, " which was created by feeding the output of one microphone preamp into another and adjusting the level to create the distortion. The tubes were glowing and lit up the control room.When mastering for the 45-RPM vinyl release, we were successfully able to bake the original master tapes and play them to cut the lacquer masters. We can NOT bear responsibility for packages lost or damaged by the Postal System.
If you do not agree with this Please DO NOT. Grading is visual only unless otherwise stated. I go by Goldmine standards and try to be conservative. I will play grade on certain items only - it is just impossible for me to play grade everything I put on EB. RECORD GRADING: MINT (M) ---- It should be SEALED and appear to be brand new.
Mint means STILL SEALED, NEVER PLAYED. NEAR MINT (NM or NM-) ---- OPENED or UNSEALED.
Otherwise mint but has one or two tiny inconsequential flaws that do not affect play. Covers should be close to perfect with minor signs of wear or age just becoming evident. VERY GOOD PLUS (VG++ or strong VG++ or VG+++) The record or cover that all but the most particular collector would say looks outstanding. Cover may have insignificant manufacturers defect such as notch hole or cut corner.VERY GOOD PLUS (VG+ or strong VG+) The record has been handled and played infrequently or very carefully. On a disc, there may be light paper scuffs from sliding in and out of a sleeve or the vinyl or some of the original luster may be lost. A slight scratch that did not affect play would be acceptable for most collectors.
Cover has most of its original gloss and has been well taken care of. Minor seam splits may be acceptable. Some audible surface noise, non-feelable marks that might or will affect the sound as mild occasional surface noise or periodic pops/clicks.
Usually a cover is VG when one or more of these problems are evident: ring wear, seam splits, bent corners, loss of gloss, stains, etc. Popping or clicking will be most evident through quieter passages. Record should play all the way through, but may skip. GOOD (G) ---- Well played with little luster and significant surface noise.
Despite defects, record should still play all the way through without skipping, but may skip. Several cover flaws will be apparent, but should not obliterate the artwork. Filler copy until a better one can be found.
POOR (P) ---- Any record or cover that does not qualify for the above "Good" grading should be seen as Poor. Only the rarest of records should ever be graded as Poor while the others should go to the trash heap.
