The Year of The Doors Starts!

The year of The Doors is set to begin on “Black Friday” with Record Store Day. Black Friday is November 25, the day after Thanksgiving (U.S.) and all the retailers are trying to lure shoppers into stores to start their Christmas holiday season.

The Doors Record Store Day release is a 7inch vinyl box set that will include the songs “The Changeling,” “Love Her Madly,” “Riders on the Storm,” each record will include an alternate take of the song on the flip side, and a fourth single that will include studio banter amongst the band members as they work out the songs “Crawling King Snake,” and “Riders on the Storm.” The boxed sets will be numbered with a suggested retail price of $49.98. This release will start “the year of The Doors” (see related article below) in which 40th anniversary CD’s of L.A. Woman will be released as will the newly discovered London Fog tapes, and the Matrix shows later in the year.

Other bands releasing special offers for Record Day are The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Byrds, Syd Barrett, The Greatful Dead, Janis Joplin, John Lennon, The Kings of Leon, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Miles Davis and whole slew of other bands and artists. A full listing of the bands and the participating stores is available at the Record Store Day official website.
