The Doors - Classic Album: The Doors

The Doors

The Doors' eponymous first album is universally regarded as their finest achievement and as one of the greatest debut albums in the history of rock music making it a worthy addition to the acclaimed Classic Albums series. The three surviving members
of The Doors: Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and John Densmore are all featured in new interviews along with original engineer Bruce Botnick, musicians Henry Rollins and Perry Farrell and executives Billy James (Columbia Records) and Jac Holzman
(Elektra Records) plus many more. What emerges is the extraordinary story of the creation of a masterpiece.

• Additional & extended interview material not included in the broadcast version.
• New instrumental demonstrations of songs from the album with Robby Krieger playing slide and flamenco guitar,
Ray Manzarek performing the solo from “Light My Fire” and John Densmore showing his drum techniques.
• The story behind “Moonlight Drive”, which was cut from the album and later appeared in a different arrangement on the second album Strange Days.
