The Doors To Release A Sides and B Sides Package

by Roger Wink, VVN Music on July 1, 2017

In the day of the vinyl single, everyone played the a-side of the record because it was normally the radio hit but, on the other side, there was sometimes a throwaway song or even a rarity that never made it onto an album.

Over the last couple of years, it has become popular to take the music of 60’s and 70’s bands and release new hit packages that contain both the A and B side of those singles. On September 15, Rhino will jump on that trend with the release of The Doors: The Singles.

The two-CD set has been divided in an interesting way with the first, 26-track, CD containing the Doors singles from before the death of Jim Morrison with all of the songs with which listeners are familiar.

The second disc starts with Tightrope Ride, the first single from the three man version of the band, minus the late Morrison, album Other Voices. That’s followed by singles released from the various later projects including Full Circle, An American Prayer and the 1983 live album Alive, She Cried. It finishes with four mono radio versions of hits.

Look for The Doors: The Singles in a two-CD set, 2-CDs with the first time ever release of The Best of the Doors on Blu-Ray, and via digital retailers. There will also be a special vinyl box set with all twenty U.S. singles on twenty 7-inch 45’s with original cover art in a flip top box.
