It's been almost 40 years since the Doors released their first album in January 1967 and this November a six-CD/DVD boxed is comming out which will include video performances and a 5.1 Surround Sound mix of each album. The remastered albums are The Doors, Strange Days, Waiting For the Sun, The Soft Parade, Morrison Hotel and L.A. Woman. (the above taken from About Classic Rock)
QUESTIONS FOR YOU:
1. Are you a Doors fan?
2. Do you plan to purchase this set?
3. Do you like it when bands do this, put all their best stuff out in compilation or do you think it's just a way to make money?
4. Would you be surprised to know I am old enough to remember (vaguely) watching the Doors perform on The Ed Sullivan Show when Jim pulled one of his infamous stunts? (hint: the answer to this questions is, "yes, Layla, I am shocked that you are that old, you look so young for your age")
You probably know the story: Sullivan made them promise to change the lyrics from "we couldn't get much higher" to something else because he didn't want the word "higher" (my things have changed since then!) on his show.
This is a Classic moment in Rock history (and doesn't Val Kilmer make a damn good Morrison?!)
