Break On Through

'The Doors' box set to mark 50th anniversary


The Doors want everyone to relight their fire in a big way. An expanded, golden anniversary edition of the band's explosive debut album will be released March 31.

"The Doors: 50th Anniversary Deluxe Edition" is a three-CD/LP set featuring the self-titled album's original mono and stereo mixes from 1967. A third disc spotlights eight of the record's 11 songs performed live by singer Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Kreiger and drummer John Densmore. The concert, taped at the Matrix in San Francisco on March 7, 1967, includes "The Doors" signature hits "Break On Through (To the Other Side)," "The End" and, of course, "Light My Fire."

The rerelease will be encased in a 12 x 12 hardcover book with rare photos and liner notes by longtime Rolling Stone contributor David Fricke.
