The Doors (Part 1 of MANY)

I was looking for something else earlier today and stumbled across this absolutely amazing torrent, which just
likely has more Doors stuff than even their biggest fan could ever hope for. My God, it's amazing.....I'm going to post it a bit at a time, and, depending on my posting schedule (it may recur once a week or so, much like the recent Elvis Costello posts), I'll bet it takes me at least six months to get through it has EVERYTHING......all of the studio albums, done as 40th anniversary editions with bonus tracks.....I'd guess 30 or more live sets....interviews, non-LP singles, just damn near EVERYTHING.....REALLY an amazing job someone did to compile all of this, if you hate the band (some do), you are in the wrong place....this thing will be a mammoth when it's done.

Lets do up the first three studio LP's, as mentioned before, each comes with bonus tracks....The Doors, my favorite, is there in all it's blazing glory, "Light My Fire", "Break On Through", "The End".....also includes "Indian Summer" and a pair of alternate takes of "Moonlight Drive" (actually a "Strange Days" track, but whatever.

"Strange Days" was a classic as well, with the great "People Are Strange", "When the Music's Over", "Love Me Two Times"...hell you know all this.....there are also alternate versions of "People Are Strange" and "Love Me Two Times". I realize we are seeing but a couple of "extras" per album, but show patience...eventually damn near every note they ever pounded out will be posted here.

Let's wrap up Part 1 of this with "Waiting For the Sun", not nearly as strong an album as the previous two efforts. Even still, we get "Five to One", "The Unknown Soldier", and "Hello I Love You", not terrible for one of a band's lesser efforts. Bonus tracks are "Albinoni's Adagio In G Minor", three different alternate takes on "Not To Touch the Earth", and a version of the infamous "Celebration of the Lizard".

Hope you Doors fans catch these, and don't contact me in three years telling me the links are is the time for ACTION!
