The Doors’ debut album in its deluxe edition

Earlier this year, on the 50th anniversary of the release of The Doors debut album, Rhino announced the March 31 release of an expanded version of that self-titled LP. The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition will be released as a 3-CD/LP set, featuring stereo and mono mixes and rare live recordings. (Pre-order is available here.)

Best Classic Bands is celebrating 100,000 Facebook followers by giving away a copy of this deluxe set, courtesy of Rhino and The Doors.

Packaged in a 12×12 hardcover book, The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition includes a remastered version of the album’s original stereo mix, available on CD for the first time in a decade and remastered for the first time in nearly 30 years. The album’s original mono mix was also remastered for this set and is making its CD debut here. An LP version of the mono mix is also included. The third disc features a live performance from the Matrix in San Francisco recorded just weeks after The Doors was released. Music journalist David Fricke provides detailed liner notes for the set, which includes a selection of rare and previously unseen photographs.

The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition offers a rare opportunity to hear the band on the verge of superstardom with live performances recorded during a March 7, 1967 show at the Matrix in San Francisco. The Matrix recordings heard on this deluxe edition were sourced from the recently discovered, original tapes, previously thought to be lost.

The disc contains live versions of eight tracks on The Doors, including “Light My Fire,” “Break On Through (To The Other Side)” and “Back Door Man.”
