To be honest, these are better than I ever dreamed rock music from the sixties could sound. I want to thank everyone at Analogue Productions for bringing me such sweet sounds from some of my favorite music ever. One of rock musics most famous debuts, The Doors self-titled 1967 smash is legend. And now it becomes the kick-off for a positively stunning reissue series from Analogue Productions and Quality Record Pressings! The Doors was born after Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek who'd met at UCLA's film school met again, unexpectedly, on the beach in Venice, CA, during the summer of 1965. Although he'd never intended to be a singer, Morrison was invited to join Manzarek's group Rick and the Ravens on the strength of his poetry.
The group later changed its moniker, taking their name from Aldous Huxley's psychotropic monograph The Doors of Perception.

A truly authentic reissue project, the masters were recorded on tube equipment, and the tape machine used for the transfer of these releases is a tube machine, as is the cutting system.
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. The amount of detail and space produced here is superior to any version of this that I've heard save for the Elektra original, which is serious competition though good luck finding a clean quiet one. Even then the 45rpm cut's spaciousness, dynamics and bass power and particularly the overall sound on what are the inner tracks on the original LP are better on the double 45 cut using an all vacuum tube chain just as was the original... The double 45 has greater dynamics, detail, spaciousness and appropriate grit - everything the smooooth 192k/24 bit sourced version lacks...
Definitely on my recommended list and the Quality Record Pressings vinyl is superb. Music = 9/11; Sound = 9/11 - Michael Fremer. Break On Through (To The Other Side).
