Woke Up This Morning, Got Myself a Doors Singles Box…

D

And it will sell out before the hangover even hits…

 By Blurt Staff

 A 14 CD set containing all 14 Doors singles as they were released in Japan has just been unveiled to Lizard King acolytes via TheDoors.com. And unless you actually live in Japan, you can’t buy this anywhere EXCEPT at the Doors site due to export restrictions.

As you can see from the illustration above, each CD comes individually packaged with original Japanese artwork, and is fashioned to mimic the original 7″ Japanese vinyl packaging. According to the Doors, “This singles box set is the CD reproduction of all vinyl singles released by The Doors between 1967 and 1972.  As four of  [the] 18 US singles were never released in Japan, the singles box includes 14 singles.  Strictly speaking, this is the first time 17 of the 28 tracks are released [in] CD format. Since all the original singles were released by Nippon Victor (now Victor Entertainment Inc), the faithful reproduction of them has certain limitations, but we have managed to use the Elektra Blue Guitar-Man labels that were used exclusively in Japan.

Uh-huh. Well, it costs $99, fans…
