The 50th anniversary celebration of The Doors’ music continues with The Singles Collection. Due September 15th, the two-CD set (also available in digital) packs all the A- and B-sides of their 20 U.S. singles, plus four mono radio mixes.
Among the notable rarities are several songs released after Jim Morrison’s passing in 1971. They include tracks the surviving trio recorded together (“Tightrope Ride” and “The Mosquito”), as well as live selections from posthumous releases (“Roadhouse Blues” and “Gloria.”)
A deluxe two-CD, one-Blu-ray edition adds the 1973 compilation The Best of The Doors in Quad on Blu-ray for the first time. There will also be a limited edition vinyl box set with all 20 singles — including the original sleeve art.
These releases join the previously announced limited-edition seven-inch vinyl single of “Light My Fire” with artwork from its original Japanese pressing. That goes on sale July 28th, 50 years to week the Doors breakthrough single reached number-one.
